Burger King Drive-Thru

Fast food is one that is served fast. Therefore, it is surprising that a fast food chain, Burger King, should score the lowest in terms of the speed of its delivery. In fact, among the chains that were analyzed as part of the QSR Drive-Thru Study 2012, Burger King came last for taking 201.33 seconds per order, which was more than three minutes per order. Well, who’s gonna wait for that long for their burger and soda, while waiting in the car?


The study analyzed seven fast food chains on the basis of their drive-thru performances. The performances were studied in terms of parameters like – average service time, order accuracy, cleanliness of menu, customer service. Succeeding on all these criteria, Wendy’s scored first position among the chains, for delivering its drive-thru order at an average of 129.75 seconds.
