The way this Kamloops customer treated his servers brought ‘goose bumps’



“He came in and said ‘in all the time I’ve come here the staff are always happy, never made a mistake’,” owner Brenda Chornohus says of Cory’s reason for paying it forward. “It’s just incredible, I have goose bumps.”

Makenna Larocque, who began working at Chopped Leaf in July 2012 when she was just 16 and now works there full-time, was the lucky winner of the draw and will be on her way to see Imagine Dragons perform in Vancouver this summer thanks to one of her favourite customers.

“He always has a smile on his face. He’s a really nice guy,” she says. “He’s the one (of our regular customers) that sticks out the most.”

Chornohus says to make the experience complete for her employee, she has also made arrangements to have Larocque’s hotel room covered while she is in Vancouver.

“I’m stoked. It’s definitely unexpected,” Larocque says. “It’s nice to feel appreciated. Sometimes you’re working so hard and trying to be so nice, and it’s nice to hear that it affects them. They do appreciate that I’m smiling at them even though I really don’t always want to.”
