Study: Chick-Fil-A finishes last in drive-thru wait times


(CNN) – If you’re at a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru, you may have to wait quite some time, according to a new study.

The popular restaurant chain came in dead last on QSR Magazine’s “Drive-Thru Performance Study.”

The study measured how long it takes to get food after you first approach an order window.

The average wait time at Chick-Fil-A clocked in at almost five and half minutes.

It didn’t take much time to make the donuts at Dunkin’ Donuts. The chain served customers in an average of less than four minutes.

McDonald’s, Hardees, and Arby’s were some of the slowest.

Arby’s said high-quality food from a menu that offers more choices just takes longer to prepare.

No matter where you go, you’ll wait the least amount of time for breakfast and the most time in the late afternoon.
