DailyDirt: Fast Food, Faster!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The fast food industry is always trying to be more efficient about its services. There have been lots of different ways to accomplish quicker fast food, and adding technology to the restaurant recipe sometimes works, but oftentimes doesn’t (eg. uWink Bistros). Here are just a few examples for getting your hamburger orders filled faster.

Frozen Entrees Instead.

I would point out that it is an arbitrary convention that a hamburger meal combines certain foods in certain ways– that is you have a hamburger with cheese and salad and bread, and then you have potatoes as a side dish. If you make the salad and the bread into side dishes, you can make the meat and cheese and potatoes (or pasta) into an entree, served in a little plastic dish. Entrees are easily frozen and reheated in a microwave oven, and they seem to be more or less comparable in quality to McDonald’s or Burger King burgers. Of course the frozen entrees are made in a factory, and the factory will no doubt adopt robots at some point. A salad, by itself, with no meat, no cheese, and no salad dressing, will keep handily in the refrigerator for a couple of days. Likewise, bread will keep for a reasonable period of time, provided it is kept dry. I get my salads from the local Subway, where I can watch them make the salad, and the ingredients seem to be fresher. Even if you are on the move, you can always eat something like chili from an insulated paper cup with a spoon.
