  Q3: What is the news report mainly about?

  快餐的上餐速度正在变慢。以麦当劳为例,自从15年前出现麦当劳之后,现在是有史以来上餐速度最慢的时候。现在麦当劳从下订单到拿食物的平均速度是3min9s,比之前多了10s。QSR统计,其他连锁店如汉堡王也是一样上餐速度变慢。因为食物种类更多,制作更复杂,且需要更长的时间去备餐,所以快餐连锁店的上餐速度正在变慢,但是速度和上餐的准确性对快餐店很重要。

  2。 Among the reasons for the slower service, today there are more
choices on the menu and the products themselves are more complex and
take longer to prepare。

  [评析]

  Q3: Fast food turns out isn’t quite as fast as it used to be。 A
new study finds that MacDonald posted its slowest drives through times
since this survey was first conducted fifteen years ago。 As
MacDonald’s, customers were spent on average three minutes and nine
seconds from the time they placed their orders until they received their
food。 That‘s about ten seconds more than the industry average and a lot
slower than a decade ago, according to the study, which was
commissioned by QSR, an industry trade publication。 And MacDonalds
wasn’t alone in slowing down。 Other chains also saw their drive through
performance slowing down。 Q4: Among the reasons for the slower
service, today there are more choices on the menu, and the products
themselves are more complex and take longer to prepare。 Speed, of
course, is essential to the drive through experience, and drive
throughs are hugely important to chains such as MacDonalds, Burger
King, and Tucle Bell。 Usually, the drive through accounts for sixty
to seventy percent of all business that goes through a fast food
restaurant, notes Sam Ochers, editor of QSR。 Of course, consumers
also want their orders prepare correctly and on that score, Ochers says
accuracy is still really high。
