Service Failure and Service Recovery Service failure occurs when a customer has a dissatisfying experience. How the service provider reacts to a customer complaint determines whether service recovery will occur. Service recovery is the “recapturing” of a customer following a dissatisfying experience by resolving the problem. The key to service recovery is speed – the quicker complaints are resolved, the better.
