Additional Notes

Complaint: Company advertises no contract to sign yet stated that we did not meet the minimum amount of coffee products to continue to use their products. Removed two coffee makers, one wire rack and one organizer rack on 7/30/14. Company stated we had received a letter providing us with 30 days notice but noone in our company received that letter. In addition, an order was placed on 7/16 and no information regarding our account being terminated was relayed. When the company was asked for a copy of said letter, no copy was presented. My last communication was on 8/13/14 with Scott******, who stated that he needed some time to check into the whole matter. In the e-mail to him, I stated that we had the coffee products boxed and ready for pick up and that I expected our property to be returned at the same time. Mr.****** has not, as of 9/24/14, followed up with me nor has our property been returned. They should not advertise "no contract to sign" if in fact they have minimum order requirements. We had made them aware that we are a start up company, not at full capacity but would be busy in a few months. Secondly, I had 3 conversations with office staff, in which I asked to speak to a manager and was told "he can't take your call right now but will call you back". I even provided my cell phone number so that I would not miss their call but never received a call back. I feel other potential customers should be aware that they not only provide potential customers with false claims but have poor, at best, customer service once you become a customer.

Desired Settlement: I expect my property to be returned or for them to replace it. I expect the company to pick up the remaining coffee pods for their machines and refund us the cost of the product.
