According to a tweet I stumbled upon:
Tesla aims to open a drive-in, old school “Sonic Drive-In Themed” supercharging station!
Recent reports have quoted Tesla CEO Elon Musk on twitter saying “Gonna put an old-school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA.”
“He even said that the menu could automatically show up on the center touchscreen of the cars after they park and drivers can order from there.” — Fred Lambert
Such a peculiar, yet an instrinsic idea. My original speculation was for Tesla to adopt the “QT Kitchens” Model and start building supercharging stations with small food counters attached to them. Musk’s tweet shows another side of creativity and innovation. In my eyes, he’s seeking to create a hub for Tesla Owners to collaborate, to affiliate with each other, and ultimately to proliferate. I imagine an outdoor Apple Store with an abundance of very expensive, but appealing technological specimens sitting around while their owners are brought food by servers on roller blades. This has so many similarities with the McDonald’s origin story that started about eighty miles east of Santa Monica in San Bernardino.
My question to you readers: do you see a world in the next few decades where you can go to a “Tesla Hub” and have freshly made burgers brought to you while you watch a movie inside your car on the dashboard screen? Even if you don’t own a Tesla, you can come to marvel at the variations of the Tesla Line up, take a few photos with your vintage Instagram filter(s) or network with Tesla Enthusiasts (this is probably what I would do).
What would this do to the food market industry? Would this change it at all? Or would the change be geared toward cinematic entertainment?

P.S. if you have not watched the movie “The Founder” please do. It is a great film that accurately portrays the origin story of McDonald’s.
Thanks for reading.
