An elderly woman spoke about her love for McDonald’s and their food.

Muriel Haggerty is the oldest female McDonald’s worker in the United Kingdom, and she is still loving it.

Haggerty of Concord, Sunderland, has recently celebrated her 75th birthday. She said that she and seven of her family members work at the fast-food chain.

Haggerty, who is a great grandmother, said that she still eats the fast food every day. On her days off, she goes to McDonald’s to get her food.

Haggerty started working at the restaurant when she was 60 years old because she hated doing nothing.

Haggerty explained that after leaving her job in a factory and being bored, she decided to apply as a customer service manager at the restaurant, and she has been there for the past 15 years.

The oldest McDonald’s worker in Europe is believed to be 90-year-old Bill Dudley, who works at the restaurant in Mold, Flintshire.

Store owner Jasper Maudsley, who operates 10 restaurants in the area, said: “each of our restaurants have at least one staff member who is over 60 years old. Some have been with us for years and some have just started.”
