    I'm shocked one of or all the Big 3 pizza chains haven't added the ability to order and pick up a pie or two right from the comfort of your driver's seat.

    Lots of missed opportunity there.

    most likely because why go to a drive-thru when they will deliver it to your house for you? :doh:

    I design Little Caesar's all over the country and a lot of them have started going in spots with a drive-thru. We did a Domino's with one as well but they stopped utilizing it after a few months.

    Pizza Hut has a ton of the combo drive throughs with either Taco Bell, LJS, or KFC.

    Maybe it's because they can't fit a large pizza box through a car window?

    If you think that it's fun fetching dropped change and your bean burrito from the drive-through roadway, just imagine the fun that a scorching hot pizza will present as a poorly paid pizza employee tries to pass that a large, unwieldy pizza box to you through a drive-through window. Would you like red sauce and pineapple all over your leather interior?

    We have a little caesar's in what used to be a bank. Their drive thru does big business.

    Axe, you, of all people, should recognize a billion dollar idea. Make it happen yourself. (And hope Chuck doesn't find out.)

    There is a Little Caesar's in my town. The drive through gets a ton of business. People in this little shitty town I live in think that Little Ceasar's is real pizza.

    There was one up in Mpls years ago. Can't remember the name but they had square personal size pizzas you could get through the drive thru. Perfect size boxes for a little lunch pick up... they were always busy.

    The Little Caesars in my area has a drive-thru window. We use it all the time.
