Walkie-Talkies Speed the ‘Burgers (Dec, 1952)
Walkie-Talkies Speed the ‘Burgers
ORDERS taken by employe’s of a Milwaukee drive-in snack shop are flashed to the kitchen over the walkie-talkie (below). Filled promptly (right), orders are then delivered by other employes. Because the order girl goes directly from one car to another she saves five to 10 miles of walking a day, and orders are taken promptly. Delivery time to the customer is about 4-1/2 minutes. Equipment carried by the order taker weighs about 8 lbs. and the batteries are good for about 8 hours. The Federal Communications Commission has assigned Ace Foods, the shop, station number KA-8931.
