A Minnesota Arby’s location is under fire for putting up a sign warning parents that misbehaved children are not allowed.
Last month, Christine Hemsworth took some of her children to a local Arby’s in Elk River, Minnesota for dinner.
Upon arriving, the mother-of-five was greeted with a sign on the door that read: “Only well behaved Children who can keep their food on their trays and their bottoms on their seats are welcome. If you can’t do this you will be asked to leave.”
“I was shocked to find a sign like that. It is a fast food restaurant, it’s not something with white tablecloths. It’s supposed to be family-oriented as far as I knew,” she said.
After learning of the unofficial sign, Arby’s issued an apology stating that they had disciplined the franchise’s manager and staff.
“We recognize the language on this sign was insensitive. We removed it quickly, and have disciplined the manager and team working at the restaurant. It does not reflect our company values and the family-friendly environment we aim to provide in all of our restaurants,” a spokesperson for the chain said.
