People go to great lengths to make the birthday celebration of loved ones special. Sometimes, such love can be shown to strangers to appreciate them.
A 100-year-old man, Stephen Bellissimo, received the shock of his life on his birthday when a restaurant that he used to frequent for the past 15 years decided to surprise him.
A local Chick-Fil-A restaurant decided to reward one of their loyal customer with free food after it was noticed that he used to visit every week.
The excited 100-year-old man could not contain his joy upon discovering that he is going to be getting free food from the restaurant, Briefly.co.za learned.
He said: “Oh, I think this is just one great surprise for me. I didn’t expect anything like this. That is the best gift I could ever receive! Thank you very much!”
Stephen who used to visit the restaurant once a week before he received his reward revealed that he would now make sure to visit the restaurant every day. “Instead of coming once a week, now I’m coming every day”, he said.
Speaking on the event, the marketing director of the company, Brittani Craft, said: “He makes everyone here feel loved and welcomed.”
