Things Only Americans Think Are Normal
America’s love of the drive-thru began way back in 1947 with Red’s Giant Hamburg in Missouri opening what is considered to be the first true drive-thru. By the 1950s drive-thru’s were popping up all over the country – and since then the convenient trend has spread to banks and pharmacies. However, it’s a convenience that is pretty much unique to America. Across the rest of the world, most people have to park their cars and enter a business to get what they need.
