Cow In A Nursing Home
My cousin and I DJ for Chick-fil-A family night in Elkton every other Thursday, leading activities like super bingo, friendly feud and karaoke. We always have a packed house and customers have fun with the cow-conga-lines and the cupid shuffle!
My mom and dad used to go to another large fast food chain every day until I finally convinced them to try Chick-fil-A. They never went back to the other competitor. Whenever they showed up, the Chick-fil-A employees opened the door for my dad’s walker, greeted my parents warmly and made a big deal out of my dad’s WWII navy veteran jacket. My parents even chose Chick-fil-A for their 67th anniversary date this year.
In May, my father moved into a nursing home and could not come with my mother to Chick-fil-A anymore. The people at Chick-fil-A were very supportive, and Stephen Marcus asked us if he and his team could honor my parents by bringing them lunch in the nursing home.
On July 9, Operator Harry Marcus and his son, Stephen, brought a huge tray of nuggets, sandwiches, coleslaw and sweet tea into the Calvert Manor Nursing Home for my parents. They gave us special “Raving Fan” name badges. My mom almost cried when they told us they wanted us to officially become part of the Chick-fil-A family. After the meal, Stephen came into the room dressed like a cow. My dad laughed and gave him a kiss and we went to visit delighted patients throughout the building.
My cousin responded to the article that Cecil Whig published about the event: “This is an amazing story…thank you Chick-fil-A for making them feel so welcomed and loved. No other restaurant would ever do that. Wish we had them here in Las Vegas. We need a wholesome, loving, real restaurant here. I will visit one every chance I get.”
I travel quite a bit for my job, and have stopped at many Chick-fil-A restaurants. At Elkton, the Team Members go above and beyond to serve people and make them feel at home.
Thank you, Chick-fil-A!
