According to an annual report on fast food chains, KFC was named the fastest at drive-thru service . . .
while Arby’s and McDonald’s tied as the most accurate with drive-thru orders out of 10 different chains.
The five FASTEST chains are:  KFC . . . Taco Bell . . . Hardee’s . . . Dunkin . . . and Carl’s Jr.  Chick-fil-A was #1 last year, but they were DEAD LAST this year.
Wendy’s had the worst accuracy. For what it’s worth, the most common error is including the wrong BEVERAGE.
