Woman serves KFC with a smile for 52 years

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) - The KFC restaurant in Southfield is home to one of the franchise's longest-serving employees.

Marylou Ausborne has worn a KFC nametag for 52 years now. Just like the colonel's secret blend of herbs and spices, she, too, is one of a kind.

She even met the colonel years ago, and describes him as a "wonderful man."

She has also recruited daughter to work with her. Her daughter has been at the same restaurant as Marylou for 34 years now, near 10 Mile and Telegraph roads.

"There's no such thing as retirement. What would I do at home, you know? It's great here," Marylou says to FOX 2's Jason Carr with a smile.

When asked what's better - original recipe or extra crispy - she was quick to cast her vote for original.
