Enhance Your Drive-Thru for Faster Service

A few adjustments can make a big difference in improving your speed of service and overall car throughput. Remember, as the wheels in the lane keep moving, the profits keep growing. For faster, seamless service, consider the following:

Faster service icon
  • Have you added parking spots for curbside pickup only? How about mobile order pickup?
  • Are you tracking and measuring service times for pull-forward, curbside pickup, mobile ordering, and delivery drivers?
  • Have you considered implementing face-to-face ordering, where team members are positioned outside to take orders from a tablet to greet and assist customers quicker?
  • Is your store ready to accept Google Pay, Apple Pay, and other tap-and-go payment options?

How’s Your Crew Doing?

A well-equipped and trained crew will be better prepared to deliver superior drive-thru results. When checking in with your crew consider the following:

  • Are you fully staffed during the busiest dayparts?
  • Do you have equipment that your crew needs to be trained on?
  • Are you providing refresher training on service time goals?
  • Is your team motivated and engaged or can your store benefit from some fun competition and contests?
  • Are you regularly recognizing and rewarding your team for a job well done?

Are Your Headsets and Timers Working Properly?
