Survey: Wendy's Drive-Thrus Are Fastest

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) - A new study finds that Wendy's offers the speediest drive-thrus in the fast-food, or quick-service restaurant, business.

QSR Magazine reports that a survey conducted by Insula Research found a trip through the drive-thru at Wendy's averages just 2 minutes and 11 seconds.

The researchers also say the number of drive-thru customers has been declining at Wendy's, which tends to mean faster service times.

Wendy's finished fourth overall for drive-thru service when other factors were considered, including how accurately orders are filled.

Chick-fil-A ranked first, followed by McDonald's and Burger King.

Wendy's International Inc. is based in the Columbus suburb of Dublin. The chain is now owned by Atlanta-based Triarc Cos. Inc.
