YES!!! There’s a day for this.


The ease of dropping off or picking up an item without even having to get out of the car is something that many of us have always taken for granted. And it has never been as apparent how often we do this as it has been over the past year with Covid in our lives. Thank goodness for this wonderful benefit that our generation has been blessed to have lived with. Consider life without this option.

Whether you’re picking up or dropping off your mail, a prescription, banking, take out or the dry cleaning, just pulling up to a window or a slot and passing the article through is extremely  easier than even finding a parking spot in most every situation. And then, if you have children or pets, you must collect or secure them, your items and then go wait in line. After completing the exchange, we usually search for our parking spot while juggling children and or pets once again, then pile them back into the vehicle. When multiple stops are involved, repeating this process over and over can take up so much of your time that the number of errands you can accomplish in the day becomes significantly less.

National Drive-Thru Day on July 24th recognizes an innovation people have enjoyed since the 1930s. Though the format was originally created for banking services in the United States, the drive-thru Movie Theaters and hamburger joints helped it reach its iconic peak in the 1950s and stronger still through the 60s, 70s and today, conveniently going strong for most any and all services we desire. Restaurants, coffee shops, liquor stores, pharmacies, and ATMs just to name a few. Although not all services are as speedy as others, most all are still preferred to standing in line inside to get your products. Especially restaurants that have food to go, since there are more than 211,000 fast-food restaurants in the United States. Which one has mastered the drive thru experience above all others? I think we all have to agree it is Chick-Fil-A with a 97.3% accuracy rating.


America’s first drive-thru burger chain, Jack in the Box, created National Drive-Thru Day to celebrate America’s love of convenience by car.

Many restaurants are having Free giveaways today because of this National Day
