The general manager of the Cheesecake Factory in Tacoma, Washington kicked 6 cops out of the restaurant because they were carrying their firearms.
He told the officers they had to leave and that firearms were not allowed in the restaurant even for uniformed police officers. He lied.
Who in their right mind would kick fully dressed law enforcement out of an establishment? Only a moron would do such a thing.
Well, the general manager, you sir, ARE A MORON!
Miriam Nichols, one of the 6 officers that were kicked out, wrote to The Cheesecake Factory “I am local law enforcement and 5 co-workers and I were told to leave by the general manager, Will, of your Tacoma Mall location because 3 of us were wearing our badge, gun and were visibly identifiable as on-duty law enforcement. We were told the guns are not allowed whether you are law enforcement or not, they are not welcome. Everyone in our party was extremely upset at the lack of support we received at this location. One of our group members informed her husband who immediately contacted the establishment and was eventually routed to Will who told him that corporate has a strict no gun policy and that no person carrying a firearm, to include on duty law enforcement, we’re not welcome to eat there. When we walked in, no one in our group saw any sign that said no firearms allowed.”
AFTER the chaos, the Cheesecake Factory put out a statement that law enforcement IS allowed to be armed in their establishments.
Now how ’bout a policy that they don’t hire morons? The Cheesecake Factory blamed the situation on “miscommunication”. THAT IS A BIG PILE OF HORSE POOP! They are LYING through their teeth! There is not a general manager anywhere who does not understand fully the policies in place by the corporation.
There was no “miscommunication”. This manager overstepped his authority and decided to try to be a tough guy with law enforcement.
On a personal note. I went to the Cheesecake Factory for the first time this Thanksgiving and LOVED it!
I will not be back until they fire this manager. Period. It is one thing for a manager to be a moron. It is another to make excuses and lies for him.
