 The COVID-19 pandemic completely changed the restaurant landscape in 2020, but one of its most lasting effects appears to be the drive-thru renaissance. According to the NPD Group, by December 2020, drive-thru lanes accounted for 44% of all off-premise orders across the industry. 

With its resurgence, the drive-thru is getting a major technological facelift. Brands like McDonald’s and Burger King are making major investments in AI, while leaders like Chipotle and Checkers & Rally’s are implementing express lanes dedicated to orders placed online.  

In this 15-minute webinar, find a deep-dive into the future of the drive-thru, including: 

  • How and why industry leaders are investing in drive-thru technology
  • The key pieces of technology that will be table stakes in 2022 and beyond
  • How drive-thrus are affecting competition between QSRs and fast casual restaurants
