News : Is Customer Service Getting Worse or Fruitcake Getting Better?
Phoenix, AZ, Dec 19, 2014 -- In 2013, 37 percent of consumers surveyed said they'd rather eat a piece of last year's fruitcake than deal with customer service. This year it's even worse, 45 percent said they'd rather go for fruitcake.
So which is it? Do companies care less about delivering exceptional customer experiences or are bakers doing a better job making these candied fruit holiday treats?
