94-year-old woman continues work at Arby’s after 25 years

HOLLADAY, Utah (AP) — The 94-year-old Dorothy Bale has become a fixture and customer favorite during her 25 years working at an Arby’s in a Salt Lake City suburb.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Bale has worked at the sandwich shop longer than some of her coworkers have been alive, going through two remodels and working under 21 managers.

She works the front of the house, taking orders at the cash register and keeping tables and the condiments bar clean.

Bale first walked into the restaurant in 1994 when she was 69. She had decided to go back to work following the death of her husband, Dennis Bale.

Dorothy Bale had worked in her husband’s dental practice for 23 years. They had retired in 1988.
