The Benefits of Drive-Thru Windows
The concept of the drive-thru goes back as far as 1931, and became popular when In-N-Out revolutionized the idea in 1948. Today, drive-thrus are integral to the fast-food experience. But while the drive-thru may have started as a unique way to attract business by promising customers that they would have their food served to them without delay, and without having to exit the vehicle, today, the drive-thru window serves myriad other purposes, and is not limited to fast food alone. Some of the benefits of drive-thru windows today include:
- Employee or teller security;
- Transaction draws that can be used to pass materials safely (usually for banks);
- Enhanced businesses security when reinforced with bullet-resistant glass or security doors; and
- Marketing – studies show that drive-thru design heavily influences what customers order.
Drive-thrus are becoming so popular that they are used by more than just fast food restaurants. In addition to banks – which also have been using the drive-thru model for years – coffee shops and fast-casual restaurants have also implemented drive-thrus.
