Popularity of Drive Through Service Indicative of Modern Family Lifestyle

Joeanne Lafond, owner of Dixie Lee Restaurant, shows one of the reasons  why her drive through is so popular with her customers.

"Many of my patrons, especially those with young children, like the added convenience of being able to pay for their order with Interac or VISA. This means that they don't have to go to the trouble of getting their kids out of the car to pick up an order. They just drive on in, place their order, swipe the card and away they go," explained Joeanne.

In a society "obsessed with speed", the convenience of getting full service while you are in a hurry to get from one place to another is "heaven sent". In fact, at Dixie Lee's, you can even place your order by using your cell phone while en route and it will be ready in 20 minutes or less when you arrive. You don't even have to wait in line.

The main restaurant is open for eat-in meals from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. The drive through is open an hour later every day except Monday when it closes at 8:30 p.m. That means that up until 9 p.m. from Tuesday through Sunday, you have the opportunity to pick up anything on the menu. 

Dear Parents:

Families sure have changed in the past twenty years (who knows where they might end up). The chances that the whole family is in the same room at the same time is hard enough to accomplish, but you're expected to cook supper too! Between driving the kids to baseball, soccer, dancing, etc..., how are you supposed to find the time?

Don't worry. We can handle it for you! Just call me from your office or your cell phone and place your order. I can guarantee that your order will be ready in 20 minutes or less if you phone ahead (your ride in from town).

Don't want take out. No problem. Join us at the restaurant. Our booths can accommodate a family of four comfortably. Look through our menu and choose an appetizer before your meal or perhaps you may want to top off your meal with a piece of "homemade pie" for dessert. The choice is yours.

So, whatever best suits your family, call mine & we will be happy to cook for you. After all, the restaurant is the only place we can all get together!.

Yours truly,

Joeanne Lafond
