Customers rage over sign on door – restaurant’s response: Too bad for you, we won’t take it down!

The men and women who serve in the police force work hard to make sure that we live in a safe and lawful society.

Despite that their job is one of the toughest and most important in our country, many think they are underpaid.

This is something a KFC branch in Gallipolis, Ohio, wanted to highlight and bring to people’s attention.

The owner of the branch made the decision to hang a self-printed sign on the front door of the restaurant — and it has raised a few eyebrows.

As you can see above, the sign says “All uniformed police officers eat free everyday all day.”

The restaurant clearly wanted to show their gratitude towards the police officers in their town and all the hard work they do. I can only imagine how uplifting it must have been for the police officers to see the sign.

This was a brilliant and considerate initiative by the owner. After a picture of the sign made its way onto Facebook, it was liked over 10,000 times!

The KFC branch employees have also commented on the photo on Facebook and confirmed that it’s true — they are happy to serve free meals to all police officers all year long. This has raised a few eyebrows in the community and online.

It seems not everyone is pleased with the sign.

Some think that it’s unfair that police officers are the only ones getting this special treatment and that the same should be applied to ambulance drivers, healthcare professionals and others working within emergency services.

After so many negative comments, one police officer felt the need to reply:

“This is a positive post, but some of you can’t see the bigger picture.
As an officer, I do not go into any establishment expecting/wanting ANYTHING to be free or let alone even a discount, wether I’m in uniform or not, and I can tell you other officers feel the same way. We don’t like “special treatment”. The fact is that KFC is acknowledging law enforcement, which is why this was posted.
To those who stated that other first responders should also be acknowledged. My answer? ABSOLUTELY.”

Police officers dedicate their lives to protect ordinary citizens and our society. Their work is a fundamental foundation for the wellbeing of our country and I am grateful for all their efforts.

Please share if you think more restaurants should take after this great example — and to honor the important work of all our men and women in blue.
