Burger King employee receives goodies for working tirelessly for 27 years

The goodie bag included one film ticket, a bar of chocolate, some mints, a lanyard, and a few other things. Even though Kevin Ford was full of gratitude for the gift, the internet felt that it wasn’t enough for his tiresome service for around three decades.
HMS Host, the hiring company for Burger King was the one that gifted the bag to the employee. In a statement, Burger King said,
“The Burger King brand and its many franchisees nationwide are committed to recognizing and celebrating the achievements of the thousands of people serving across a wide range of roles.

Due to the internet’s overwhelming support, the employee’s daughter set up a GoFundMe account for him which then received hundreds of donations including one by actor-comedian, David Spade. He donated $5000 dollars to Kevin and said that the consistently performing employee should take an off day after finishing 30 years of service.
