oh ya, fully agree. Their service standard seems to be slipping. And now with more ice cream outlets coming up, Swensons may be creamed out... :lol:

So far only the one at Vivo seemed to be holding out ...

UNTIL,

when I went there the last time, they gave me a runny omelette for DS when I specifically asked for one that was well done :x , and they took so long with the orders ... think they are not equipped to deal with crowds lah...

I visit the Swenson's at Parkway quite often and realised that their staff turnover very fast...
Last time mainly PRCs, now young local Malays..

The worser experience for me with swenson is the lack of customer loyalty treatment. No matter how frequent we dine there we are often looked upon as new patrons.

In the end we totally stop going altogether due to its "ice cold" treament.
They sell ice cream like selling ice..... *frozen* :lol:
