Miles away, 'I'll have a burger'
Fast food drive-throughs go long distance
By Jenn Abelson, Globe Staff | November 5, 2006
NASHUA -- When Jairo Moncada pulled up to the drive-through at
Wendy's in Burbank, Calif., for his usual cheeseburger, fries, and
soda, he knew things looked different. There was an extra lane.
But the 25-year-old could not see the biggest change: The woman
taking his lunch order was sitting 3,000 miles away at a computer
terminal in Nashua, and fielding calls from Wendy's customers at
drive-throughs as far away as Florida and Washington, D.C.
