For the sixth year in a row, a Florida Chick-fil-A celebrated the birthday of a longtime customer who has been coming to the restaurant on a regular basis for over 20 years!
The CFA location in Oldsmar, Fla., hosted a 104th birthday party for beloved customer Mr. Steve on Nov. 8.
In a Facebook post, the restaurant said Mr. Steve visited every morning for over two decades until 2018. He sat in the same booth, ordered the same breakfast and read the morning paper during his daily visits. Now, he visits on a regular basis.
“His visit was a daily highlight and our team would carve out a good five to 10 minutes each day to sit and talk with him,” the post said.

He is described as one of the “sweetest, most genuine, kind, and humble people we have had the pleasure to know” by the restaurant employees, many of whom have developed a special relationship with him over the years.
“He always gave the best advice about life, about what’s really important, and expressed a genuine interest in the happenings of our lives,” the post said.
The restaurant shared pictures from each celebration since Mr. Steve’s 99th birthday.
When he turned 100, the location said it went “big” by dedicating a booth to Mr. Steve and gifting him free CFA for life. The celebration resulted in national news attention and the opportunity for Mr. Steve to film a Chick-fil-A commercial in New York City.
