  • Burger King cutting menu items that slow drive-thrus


Hello, Daily Money readers. Jayme Deerwester at it again. Happy Friday Eve, AKA Thursday.

If you’ve ever found yourself sitting in a fast food drive-thru lane wrapped around the restaurant, wondering what was holding everything up, Burger King feels you – and is fixing to do something about it.

José Cil, CEO of BK’s parent company, Restaurant Brands International, says it will cut more complicated menu items that tend to slow down the line. A study earlier this year found that drive-thru wait times had risen an average of early 30 seconds to 6 minutes, 22 seconds.

Here’s the rub: BK hasn’t yet said which items are getting the heave-ho. But the Original Chicken Sandwich had better not be on the list. If you ask them to cut it in half, it’s the perfect, non-messy sandwich for eating on holiday road trips – especially if you refuse to give up on driving a stick. BTW, the restaurant chain’s also got a 37-cent Whopper deal going on this weekend.
