Morning Start: Thank the military for the McDonald’s drive-thru

Your morning start for February 3rd, 2022

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend, you can do it!

Fun Fact: The first McDonald’s drive-thru service was made for the military in 1975.

Military members of the Fort Huachuca installation in Sierra Vista, Arizona were not allowed to be in public while in uniform. And to them, it didn’t make sense to change into regular clothes just to go to McDonald’s. The manager of the restaurant came up with the idea to have a window for the military members to pick up their meals without getting out of their cars. The idea quickly caught on because of how quick, effective, and simple the process became.
