Fast food restaurants first began about 100 years ago in the United States. Beginning with a system in which waiters brought food out to customers who were in parked cars, the drive-thru system originated during the 1930s. In order to make the drive-thru model work – where customers could be served exactly what they wanted in a nearly instantaneous fashion – the assembly line system developed, used for the first time by McDonald’s.
Today, fast food is integral to our culture, and nearly everyone has eaten fast food, or eats fast food occasionally. The genius behind the fast food system is exactly what its name suggests: speed. Without drive-thru windows, the businesses would likely not be nearly as effective.
For fast food restaurants, windows and doors play a crucial role in the businesses’ success. Beginning with the most obvious – the drive-thru window – any type of defect with this window could impede or completely inhibit business from continuing. A broken drive-thru window, or one that won’t open, is unacceptable.
But drive-thru windows aren’t the only things that affect customers and the fast food business; entryway doors are a huge component too. While most people use the drive-thru, many will enter the fast food restaurant and order in person when lines are long or they want to sit to eat. If entry way doors are defective, then, a customer may be deterred.
Some fast food restaurants also use rolling shutters or grills in order to lock up shop at the end of the day. When these systems are not in place, the area may be more vulnerable to theft.
Of course, even if all doors and windows are technically “working” as they should, they may not be the most efficient model for you business.
