Chula Vista Crew, Chula Vista, CA

Love for the McDonald’s Crew in Chula Vista, California, starts at a young age; for 7-year-old Ariany, she penned her “heroes” at McDonald’s a sweet letter of thanks:

“McDonald’s is my favorite restaurant. I feel like an angel when I go there. The restaurant looks like heaven. It makes me feel happy, like I’m floating on a cloud.”

The heroes of Chula Vista alongside Owner/Operator, Jill Lindstedt, couldn’t let Ariany down, so they responded in style by bringing free Happy Meals® to Ariany and her whole class. During the lunch visit, Ariany personally handed out gift bags to every Crew member, which included tickets to see the local major baseball team play. What a heartwarming circle of gratitude.

Thank you, Chula Vista Crew!

Send us your Crew stories and let’s say Thank You for all they do.

A Heart-Stopping Day on the Job
All superheroes have one thing in common: they are known for saving lives of those around them. When a Crew member suddenly collapsed at a Tulsa, Oklahoma, restaurant, fellow Crew member, Alfredo, jumped into action, immediately starting chest compressions.
