I went there with my special needs child who alwaya orders a like it vanilla and strawberry mixed together. He has ordered this on several locations and also at the fm 1960 lp cation prior to today. The lady said she was the manager and tells her staff not to mix two flavors when they order a like it. I pretty much begged to make it for my son and told her he always orders this and was special needs. No remorse from her and she did do it but with an attitude and she charged me two extra dollars. She should nott be allowed to treat people this way

I went to my local Cold Stone Creamery in Centereach, NY.

The server that waited on me was clearly inexperienced. She got my order wrong and when her colleague corrected my order from a "Like It" to the "Love It" that I had ordered. She swore then basically scrapped the rest of the ice cream left on the stone into the correct size cup instead of just apologizing and starting over. My cup was short the size requested and another coworker made my daughter's, which was the same size. The difference between the two ice creams was staggering, not only in size, but in presentation. I paid for it took it home and tossed it.

Horrible Experience at Cold Stone Creamery (Woodbridge Mall, NJ) I was at the Woodbridge mall in New Jersey on 09/18/18. On that day, it just so happen to be my son's birthday, and we both saw a "Cold Stone" so I immediately said to my son, how about we go get some "Cold Stone" ice cream. My son was happy and over joy with excitement, because he's been to "Cold Stone" many times before. I've been to Woodbridge Mall quite a few times, but I don't think I ever noticed that there was a "Cold Stone" located in the mall. When I got to Cold Stone ice cream, I notice two people there, an older male about 50 or older and a younger female. I noticed they were having a conversation, so I waited for them to finish. I overheard some of aspects of their conversation and so I made the assumption the younger female was a new hire and the older gentlemen was likely a manager or owner. The older gentlemen asked if he can help me, and I proceeded to make sure he was aware my son had peanut allergy because in the past with other Cold Stones I noticed the server would take the precaution of using an unused utensil to serve my son his ice cream. The older gentlemen got my son the chocolate ice cream in a waffle dish with color sprinkles as requested, I didn't see him take a clean unused utensil when he scoped the ice cream for my son, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I myself got the strawberry ice cream. After paying for the ice cream, my son and I left the store to find his mom and she was sitting not too far from where the "Cold Stone" was located. When my son and I got to his Mom, we sat down next to his Mom and began to enjoy the ice cream. About 10 minutes later, my son began to complaint about tingling sensation in his several locations in his mouth. The tingling feeling indicate the initial reaction my son gets when he eats peanut, then he would start to get hives and feeling of itchiness all over his body. His immediate thought was there was likely some traces of peanut in the ice cream he was eating. I discussed the situation with his mother and we both thought the ice cream likely had traces of peanut. I told his mom, that I made sure to tell the people working in "Cold Stone" that my son had peanut allergy. My son and I went back to the "Cold Stone" with the ice cream we believe likely had trace amounts of peanut. . As I got to the store, I notice that there were now 3 people. The third person was younger male. I told the older gentlemen my son was feeling some tingling sensation in his mouth and his body began to feel itchy because I believe there were likely trace amount of peanut in his ice cream. The older gentlemen said he took all appropriate precaution and there was no way there would be peanut. Then they both started to tell me am I sure that he's allergic to peanut or maybe tree nuts. I told the both of them my son has been allergic to peanut since he was young and so obviously I know for a fact he's allergic to peanut. I emphasize that he needed to be very careful especially when I had made him aware of my son's peanut allergy. As I proceeded to leave the store, I heard the older gentlemen CURSING at me. That's when I stopped and turn to both older gentlemen and younger mal, and told them why are you CURSING at me when you put peanut in my son's ice cream. The older gentlemen RAN AFTER ME LIKE HE WAS GOING TO FIGHT ME, but the younger male held him back. The younger male then told me to LEAVE OR I'LL CALL SECURITY TO ARREST YOU. I told the young male, please call security. I finally left and located the Woodbridge Center Management office office and reported the incident to the General Manager Amy. I'VE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH AMY VIA E-MAIL AND I FOUND OUT THE OLDER GENTLEMEN I'VE BEEN REFERENCE WAS THE OWNER MR. ZIMMERMAN. The Woodbridge Center (Woodbridge Mall) is located at 250 WOODBRIDGE CENTER DRIVE, WOODBRIDGE, NEW JERSEY 07095. Now, I had time to think about the incident that had transpired and there are 3 things which occurred that truly concerns me about Mr. Zimmerman and the Cold Stone store he operates. First, as I was going to walk out of the store to leave the matter as is, Mr. Zimmerman got my attention when I was in the process of walking out of his store, by CURSING at me with the intent for me to hear so he can escalate the situation. Now maybe Mr. Zimmerman thinks it's OK to curse in front of a child, but I certainly do not condone this type of language in front of my son. The second concern I have is that Mr. Zimmerman actually ran towards me as though to fight me, while his employee held him back. I was with my son and he's acting like a street thug that bullies people because they complaint. I was pretty shocked at his action and so now I know the true nature of Mr. Zimmerman. Last, MR. ZIMMERMAN'S EMPLOYEE HAD THREATENED ME WITH ARREST because I was concern that my son's ice cream could have been potentially exposed to fragments of unseen peanut. I find it so unbelievable that this actually happened at a "Cold Stone".

The help at the cold stone in Edwardsville Illinois is less than desirable. They are not happy you are there and take their time to wait on you. Look for help that cares.

A friend of my son's worked there and felt the same about the co-workers on how they treated him. Sounds like corporate needs to re-examine that place

My family and I have patronized this location for quite sometime. I enjoyed it because of the excellent customer service and the family friendly environment. Well on Aug 6th 2018, we went to the location in Pikesville Md (Woodholme Center), when we entered there was a sour smell like an old wet mop. While there was a line, all 3 employees went into the back of the store and then all of a sudden, over the PA system, the music of 50 cent was playing. Not acceptable for a business and an atmosphere that suppose to be family friendly and with young children. After getting my order, the young lady wrapped some of the orders in clear wrap because of the amount of ice cream could not be contained my the lid. Well my daughter's order of Watermelon Sorbet was not wrapped. I assumed the old fit. The lady bagged the order and I left the store. As soon as I got in my truck, the bag tore because the top came off and made the bag wet. As I got out of the vehicle to go back in the store, the sorbet fell out of the bag on to the ground and splashed all over my brand new white leggings and a brand new top. I went back and the young lady remade the order, wrapped it and placed in a new bag. While I was standing there, the same young lady stopped serving a customer to remake my order. She never asked the lady to excuse her or apologized. The woman didnt even know why the lady stopped servicing her. The floor behind the counter was dirty and dangerous. Slippery where an employee could fall and be injured. The counter was dirty. I could tell the environment and the demographics of the customers had changed. Because of my dissatifaction, I will not visit this location. And this is the closest one to my residence.

To whom this may concern, as a business person myself I was appalled to walk into the Vallejo, Ca. Cold Stone icecream store to see filthyness everywhere I looked...I couldn't believe how dirty and gross that store was. It appeared to look as if NO ONE ever cleaned daily...I am calling the health department because that store has NO BUSINESS being open for business under these dirty circumstances...thank you for listening that is if you really care...

Tonight (5/17/18) we visited the store on Power and McKellips in Mesa. There was only one girl working in the store. There were people in line going clear out the door. The store countertops were a mess, she was out of milk and many of the ice cream bins were empty. There is no reason that poor girl should've been working alone on a Saturday night. Kudos to her though. as she was working her tail off. She was still polite and professional to each customer in spite of the fact it was way too much for one person to handle. That young woman should be recognized for her good attitude and determination in a situation that never should have been put upon her! I have to wonder where her manager was?! That young girl working alone is a sign of very poor management. None of the customers who waited at least 15 minutes to get their treats complained or got rude. most likely because like myself, we all felt so sorry for her and admired her tenacity. Your company is fortunate to have such a devoted employee, as in the same scenario, I most likely woul have locked the doors and gone home.

Mt Laurel NJ

I recently purchased a cake at your store in Mt laurel NJ for my daughters 30th birthday party on March 25, 2018. During her party that night we cut open the cake to find it did not have ingredients that it was suppose to have inside. The cake was labeled cookie and cream and was decorated with Oreo cookies on the outside but had cookie dough and yellow cake inside. We packed up the remaining cake and the other half which was sliced open went into the trash. We do not eat cookie dough in our family. Sad to say it was very disappointing for my daughter on her special day. The next day I called the corporate headquarters and left a message with customer service and called the store in my laurel NJ where I purchased the cake. I was offered no apologies from the store was rudely told to return the cake for another. I told them I did not want another and will return the half of the cake for a full refund and they refused told me I already ate half so that is all they will do. I than called the corporate number again for no one after 4 hours bothered to return my call. I talked to the receptionist who then told me she would get me someone in customer service. A young man answered the phone I proceeded to explain the problem and he kindly told me that he was from the IT department but knew the woman in customer service and they were enjoying a hamburger tasting event but they will contact me when they are done. Half hour later no return call from customer service so I called Corp back and talked to the receptionist once again who gave me Mr Miller phone number was told he was manager for that region where I purchased the cake. Talked to Mr Miller who informed me that since that store is a franchise it it managed by the owners and he has no control over their decisions. I kindly told him that they are selling a product mislabeled from a company he represents and therefore he should have some control over the store. If the store is selling cold stone products and are not watching the quality of the product being sold than that is very dangerous. I don't need to tell you how serious mislabeling of a food product is. I did not go to a mom and pop local ice cream shop I went to a store with a sign that said Coldstone Creamery in it. I expected that product would be of the proper taste and quality which would represent the reputation that Coldstone is or should I say was know for. As a company in the United States it is very and I mean very important that the food product be properly labeled due to food allergies. Not one person seem to care. I have seen numerous recalls on food when the product labeled did not matched what is inside. Apparently you company does not feel that that is important. I will be filing a complaint with the food and drug administration

I visited your store today because I really love your ice cream. When I arrived there was one couple ahead of me in the store and one employee only on site. The really, really slow employee took over 25 minutes to fill an order ($11.99) carton with six different flavors. I patiently waited. Meantime, three more families came in behind me. While the employee was attempting to complete the order, a woman walked in and yelled at him, "where are the red velvet cakes". He stopped what he was doing and answered her. Finally it was my turn and while I was waiting to give him my order, the woman with the cake walked to the register and he went to wait on her. Not only did she want the cake, she wanted candles. Then she got a little upset because your clerk told her he didn't have a bag so she told him to go find a cardboard box for her completely sealed and covered cake. This time he was gone over five minutes. She was mouthy, she was truly going to be more of a problem and then, when every single person in the store started yelling at her, she said, "now I'm going to take my time signing my receipt." She almost got attacked because of her attitude. My turn, I asked your employee to step aside so I could talk to him and didn't want to embarrass him. I told him I was just going to tell him why, after waiting for now 45 minutes, I wasn't going to make a purchase. I asked if it was his first day on the job and he said no. I asked him why he would wait on this woman instead of having her stand in line and take her turn like everyone else. He claimed it was company policy. I told him when he was the only employee that perhaps policy needs to be changed. At this point the store erupted and everyone was screaming at him. Now before I finish I need to tell you that I never saw this young man wash his hands, even though he took money and went back to scooping ice cream. Finally, I will not be back. If your company is so concerned about staffing your store and you can't train your employees properly in scooping and cleanliness, I'll go to the yogurt store.

Hi I was just at the south orange location in nj and the Spanish girl that was there tonight was very rude towards me . She was bad talking me while I was standing right in front of her . WHAT KIND OF EMPLOYEE DO YOU HIRE. On top of that her friends were there and she gave them free ice cream and only told the cashier to charger her for 2 items and she had 5 . That's so crazy

It is not encouraging to see such negative reviews and I am not going to help much!! Was told that the Cold Stone store in Fig Garden Village would have FUDGE TRUFFLE year around....and you did for a few months. Now I am told it is available around Valentine's Day!! I suppose I should have called. Your product is good but poor service and the perception that you really don't care will be the downfall.

My family went to the #22440 restaurant and the service was very slow. They weren't even busy but the lady who was trying to serve us had no idea what she was doing. She was literally walking like she was confused or lost before she would start preparing anything. We got so upset that only two of us out of the four were served before we left. That was after being there waiting for about 10 minutes to even be acknowledged. This store never has all their ingredients or even ice cream. Every time we have tried going there we haven't been able to get what we want because they are out of something. It is the worst and poorest managed Coldstone we have ever been too. Someone from corporate needs to check out this store because the business is ridiculous.

Hi my name is Joey Homan and I was a employee at the schuamberg location in Woodfield mall. All of a sudden the managers Dave and Bela were not answering my texts asking why I wasn't on the schedule for last week and this week. Bela left me on Read and I feel like I don't deserve to be treated that way in anyway. Hopefully I get my last check if I have one at all. I can call as well. No response from them ever since for about 4 days.

Not run as a business should, failure at delivering pre paid order. I pre-ordered a cake early Friday morning. I paid for the cake and received notice. Someone from the store called on Friday to confirm both the selection and the wording. I was to pick up the cake at 3 pm on Saturday. I just received a call from the store, (2 pm Sarurday) and was informed that my cake would not be ready. And of course, that they "most of the time" need 2 days for a custom cake (This was not that custom, we needed a larger rectangle cake). So I have now been told at 2 pm, that my cake will not be ready at 3 pm, and that I can talk to the manager who comes in later tonite. Every time I get tricked into dealing with Coldstone and their climatized manner of running their franchises, I, or my family, get burned. I have not been back to purchase anything from coldstone for 1 year. I only tried once again after my wife truly wanting this cake from Coldstone. And now we have this latest fiasco. I will not be back as a customer. Not even taking in my granddaughters soccer team for an after game snack. Done. I hope the degenerative manner that this business model operates within catches up with them. The Fremont California store continues to assist in this spiral.
