CHAMBLEE, Ga. – A special celebration took place in Chamblee Thursday morning in honor of a beloved McDonald’s employee.
October 27 not only marked Willie Calhoun’s 73rd birthday, but also his 59th anniversary working at the fast-food chain.
“Mr. Willie,” as his friends call him, started working at McDonald’s when he was 14-years-old and has been at the Chamblee location on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard for more than two decades.
“I started off in Sandy Springs, to two more stores and ended up here,” he said. “This is where I’ve been a very long time.”
Thursday morning, a party was held at his longtime place of employment, where Mr. Willie was recognized for his hard work and loyalty.
