By now you have probably seen the viral video of a Burger King employee who received a trifling party favor bag for 27 loyal years of service to the company.

54 yr old Kevin Ford works as a cook/cashier at the Burger King at Las Vegas airport and as he described what was in the bag it made us all sad.

In the video now shared millions of times, he shared everything he received, including candy, a few pens, movie tickets, a Starbucks cup, and a few other nick-knacks.

Watch below:

A spokesperson from BK released the following statement:

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 — all dedicated to providing our Guests a world-class experience.

Following review with this location’s franchisee, we’ve learned that this video depicts a Team Member in receipt of a peer-to-peer reward in recognition of a short-term positive performance/experience.

The franchisee offers its Team Members a robust employee recognition program, which includes the recognition of tenure milestones and monetary awards.

Kevin appeared on Instagram with Entrepreneur Sierra Nicole and his daughter where she collected $2700 for Kevin, $100 for each year he put in.

Watch below!

Kevin also has a Gofundme, set up by his beautiful daughter and on the profile she said:
*y’all shattered the original goal so I increased it! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much*

Hi, My name is Seryna. The man in that video is my father. He has worked at his job for 27 years and yes he has never missed a day of work.

He originally began working at this job as a single father when he gain custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago.

Then as our family grew and he remarried, he continue to work here because of the amazing health insurance That was provided through this employer because it was unionized.

Which got all four of his daughters through high school and college with full healthcare coverage. My dad continues to work here, because though he does look young, he is coming up on retirement age and leaving would cost him his retirement.

In no way are we asking for money or is he expecting any money but if anyone feels like blessing him he would love to visit his grandchildren.
