Companies like Wendy’s (WEN), McDonald’s (MCD), Yum Brands‘ (YUM) Taco Bell and KFC, Burger King (BKW) and more let you order and receive your meal in minutes without even getting out of your car.

Wendy’s gets the overall nod for this one because, out of all the drive-thrus out there, its service is the fastest. A study from late last year showed that the average service time was a mere 129.75 seconds for its drive-thru.
