Drive Through

The first recorded use of a bank using a drive-up window teller was the Grand National Bank of St. Louis, Missouri in 1930. The drive-up teller allowed only deposits at that time.

The first drive-through restaurant was created in 1947 by Sheldon "Red" Chaney, operator of Red's Giant Hamburg in Springfield, Missouri. Located on the famous Route 66, the restaurant served customers until its closure in 1984.

The first drive through window at a McDonald's restaurant was created in 1975 in Sierra Vista, Arizona. It was put in so the soldiers from Fort Huachuca could get food since the base had a regulation prohibiting anyone in uniform from entering a business establishment..
