Jeremiah Murrill doesn't do anything outrageous when he takes customers' meal orders on the Chick-fil-A drive-thru line—but with what KPRC describes as his "infectiously upbeat customer service and bright attitude," the 20-year-old North Carolinian has attracted nationwide attention. Per CNN, Murrill is beloved by regulars who frequent the Wilmington fast-food eatery, taking orders with a smile, encouragement, and even an occasional fist bump for everyone passing through. A couple weeks ago, one customer asked Murrill if she could record him at work. "I was like, 'Sure,' and didn't think anything of it," he tells WWAY.

That video made its way to Facebook, where it has since been viewed nearly 410,000 times as of Tuesday night, with plenty of comments praising Murrill to boot. "You guys are good at this. Amazing ordering, everyone," he tells the chuckling people in the car after taking their order. Murrill, who started working for Chick-fil-A a few years ago, says he tries to remember the names of all of his regulars, and that he just wants to make everyone's day a little bit better. "Your actions, your behavior, or the way you interact with people matters," he tells WWAY. "It can transform a day." Murrill, whose four siblings also work at the same restaurant, says he hopes to own his own Chick-fil-A franchise someday. (Read more Chick-Fil-A stories.)
