Here’s why Chick-fil-A honors Morristown woman and loyal fan


Tennessee’s Morristown (WATE) – Recently, if you’ve been on Facebook, you might have seen a post that has moved many people to tears.

Beth Ann Smith wrote about her recently deceased grandma. She wrote about her grandmother’s favorite part of the summer was when she could get a peach milkshake from Chick-fil-A.

With her grandmother, Faye Rogers, Smith claims she has many wonderful memories.


“The first thing about my grandma that comes to mind is how, when my grandfather passed away when I was six, playing with flour would always cheer me up when I felt down or discouraged or missed him. Smith remembered, “She would set me on the kitchen counter with a bag of flour and some measuring cups and simply let me play until I was happy.

Smith claimed that Faye, her grandmother, was one of four kids.

She said, “Her older sister Merle produced wonderful handmade peach ice cream.”


According to her, it was the benchmark for their family and nothing else could match. At least until Chick-fil-A started serving summer goodies.

“After we found Chick-fil-peach A’s milkshakes, every time my grandmother would take a huge gulp, she would comment, “It’s like sipping merle’s ice cream through a straw,”” Smith recalled.

For her birthday the previous year, it was the only item she desired.


“We brought a cake and flowers for her 97th birthday on July 28th last year, but she couldn’t have given a damn about the cake or the flowers. She sipped the milkshake we put in front of her and was ecstatic, according to Smith.

Unaware that it was one of the final times her grandma would get to eat a milkshake, Beth Ann took a picture of her enjoying it.

When Chick-fil-A announced the peach milkshake would be back this summer, she shared the identical image on their Facebook page. Smith got a box of gift cards from Chick-fil-A in exchange, allowing her to purchase as many milkshakes as she wants.


Smith remarked, “I was blown away that someone would go that extra mile.

A printed image of her grandma enjoying a peach milkshake was displayed in a peach-colored frame at the bottom of the box.

The day after she passed away, Smith recalled, “I was truly missing her so much that I believed there was no amount of flowers in the world that could make me not miss her as much today.”


She might be able to feel more connected to her grandmother this summer if there are enough peach milkshakes, though. End of July will mark the 98th birthday of Faye Rogers.
