Not too many people can get up early in the morning and say, “I get to go to work today” and be happy about it. One Yorktown resident, Crystal Powell, does and her customers are the beneficiaries.
“I have not always loved my job. I made the best I could out of it. But here (The Texan at 207 Main St.), I love my job. I love the customers,” said Powell.
Powell, 40 years old, started working at the age of 16. She has had seven jobs, 12 years at Burger King in North Carolina. She moved to Yorktown and has not regreted one day of it.
“I have always been in customer service,” said Powell. In this community, we have a good base in this store. We get more of the locals compared to the other stores and I really love it here.”
Yorktown locals express much of the same sentiment about here.
“She is always happy. I have never seen her down,” said Clint Leister.
