Study finds that 'fast-food' is getting slower
It seems the "fast" in "fast-food" is losing some steam, at least for customers who use the drive-thru.
A study by an industry trade group found the average time to go from order to pick-up is 181 seconds, just over three minutes. That's 8 seconds slower than last year's average of 173 seconds.
The group evaluated seven major fast-food chains like McDonalds and Taco Bell.
Researchers chalk it up to more people in the drive-thru and chains offering more complex orders.
In case you're wondering, Chick-fil-A was the slowest with an average time of 204 seconds. Wendy's was the fastest at just 134 seconds.
