Chick-fil-A Really Does Care!
My Mom, Sylvia, lost her valiant battle with lung disease on June 14th. She and my Dad, Chet, enjoyed lunch every day at Gary Harris' Chick-fil-A on International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL. The staff at this Chick-fil-A is phenomenal. They rallied around my Dad to help him through this difficult time. We received personal phone calls and visits from staff offering hugs, help and words of comfort.
My Dad has now relocated to Maryland. On his last day in Daytona Beach, we were surprised with a wonderful luncheon at Chick-fil-A. When we arrived, my Dad, my husband and I were shown to a beautifully set, linen covered table, complete with a candle and balloons. The staff presented me with a fabulous bouquet of fresh flowers in memory of my Mom. We were all treated to a delicious lunch. After lunch, we were served a luscious chocolate cake, complete with the Chick-fil-A cow, made by Carol, one of the staff members. The staff then came out to present us with a sympathy card that everyone had signed. You can see all of us in the photo.
After lunch, Gary Harris, the operator of this Chick-fil-A, presented my Dad with a large Chick-fil-A canvas bag, filled with goodies. My Dad received a Spicy Chick-fil-A cow, coupons for a year’s worth of free Chick-fil-A sandwiches, including one to use on his 100th birthday. Gary also included a card with some very special sentiments for my Dad. I later learned that Gary had been treating both of my parents to lunch daily for several months.
I can't thank Gary and his staff enough at this Chick-fil-A for their thoughtfulness, kind words and support. This group of wonderful people proves that Chick-fil-A really does care. We will never forget our friends at this Chick-fil-A!
