Happy Anniversary Hugh and Randy!


ATLANTA, GA – For the past 83 years, the Krystal® brand has seen a lot of its guests’ special events… first dates, big team wins, best friend gatherings, the list goes on and on. On Thursday, February 11th, however, the local Birmingham, Alabama Krystal® location will host a very-special couple for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. It’s become a yearly tradition for Hugh and Randy Merrill, who have been coming to the Krystal at 2419 Acton Road every February 11th for the past 12 years, so it only seemed fitting to them to invite the rest of their family and friends to join them for their Golden Anniversary this year.


“Hugh and I met on a Friday and got married just three weeks later,” Randy recalls. “When something’s right, you just know it.”

It would seem the same can be said for spending time together enjoying classic burger tastes and each other’s company.


“We are so excited to be part of Randy and Hugh’s big day,” said Amy La Frank, Director of Field Marketing for Krystal®. “Stories like these are what make Krystal so special. It may seem like just a restaurant, but it’s actually an important destination in people’s lives.” Besides Krystal’s regular menu and trademark Southern hospitality, the Merrills will also be treated to flowers and decorations along with music and celebration. Joining Hugh and Randy will be their two grown children, their three grandchildren – ages 16, 18, and 26 – and a number of close friends and other family members.


“Fifty50 years together is such an accomplishment,” continued La Frank. “All of us at Krystal® wish the Merrills many more happy years together that they’re welcome to celebrate with us any time they wish.”
