Hello 01caj: Thanks for the interesting question. The most widely quoted and apparently authoritative study in this field was put on by the Technical Assistance Research Programs (TARP), commisioned by the White House Office of Consumer Affairs. 8 Critical Steps to Establish a Customer Service Culture URL: http://www.ezinearticles.com/?8-Critical-Steps-to-Establish-a-Customer-Service-Culture&id=37272 Quote: "In the 1980?s the White House Office of Consumer Affairs commissioned a report called the TARP study. The report revealed the following facts about unhappy customers: * 96% of dissatisfied customers do not complain directly. * 90% will not return. * One unhappy customer will tell nine others. * 13% will tell at least 20 other people" Is Your Company Delivering Good Customer Service As Usual?

Look at these customer service statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor: * 96% Do not complain * One out of 20 Do complain * 19 Do not complain * 9 to 10 People hear of the problem * 10% Tell 20 to 30 people about poor service * 54% to 70% Return if complaints are resolved * 95% If problem is resolved quickly" The Customer Speaks - and the Customer has a Gift! URL: http://www.brandedservice.com/brandChamp_Articles.asp#Article4 Quote: "The Technical Assistance Research Programs (TARP), the most widely quoted research group focusing on complaining customers, found that 26 out of 27 people who experience poor service do not complain." So, the short answer to your question is that 90% percent of customers who experience poor service will not complain *and* will not return. Some other similar results: What is Mystery Shopping? URL: http://www.restaurantprofits.com/mystery.htm Quote: "Statistics have shown that over 90% of your customers will not complain when they are dissatisfied and often you may not be aware of the 10% who do complain. Most of these dissatisfied customers will defect to your competition and will share their negative experience with up to ten of their friends and family." Sales Tips URL: http://www.preciselysystems.com/tiparchive.htm Quote: "Ninety percent of people don't complain about lousy service to management - they just don't come back." Search Strategy (on Google): * restaurant "don't complain" "never return" OR "don't come back" OR "never come back" OR "don't return" * restaurant percent "don't complain" "never return" OR "don't come back" OR "never come back" OR "don't return" * restaurant percent service "don't complain" "never return" OR "don't come back" OR "never come back" OR "don't return" * restaurant poor OR lousy OR bad service statistics return customers * TARP consumer affairs * TARP study consumer behavior complain site:.gov * "Technical Assistance Research Programs" complain I hope this helps! websearcher
