’One swipe from an awesome meal’: Chick-fil-A employee in NC spreads kindness

Waiting in line at a fast-food drive-thru can be tedious, and getting your order right can sometimes be difficult.

That’s not the case at a Chick-fil-A in North Carolina, where an employee displays courtesy, enthusiasm and even shares a fist bump or two.

Jeremiah Murrill, a 20-year-old employee of Chick-fil-A in Wilmington, takes orders in the drive-thru, standing outside regardless of the weather, WWAY reported.

“Your actions, your behavior, or the way you interact with people matters,” Murrill told the television station. “It can transform a day.”

A customer who frequents the restaurant agreed and wanted to share Murrill's skills. The result was a viral video on Facebook that has been viewed more than 168,000 times and shared more than 2,500 times.

"They asked, 'Hey can we record you?' And I was like,'sure' and didn't think anything of it," Murrill told WWAY.

In the video, Murrill is cheery and polite.

"You are only one swipe away from having an awesome lunch meal," Murrill said in the video. "It will be our pleasure to serve you at the drive-thru window after two more things -- a fist bump for each of you. You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for choosing Chick-fil-A."

Murrill began working for Chick-fil-A a few years ago, WWAY reported.

“I serve a lot of guests,” Murrill told the television station. “I try to remember each and every name. That’s just a personal thing for me.

“Seeing these lives transform just by talking with them, taking their orders, and being kind and nice,” he said. “It’s awesome.”

Murrill told WWAY he hopes to own a Chick-fil-A franchise while incorporating ministry and music.

He already has a head start in making customers happy.
