Protected Drive Thru in Maplewood

Many businesses have made changes to how they serve their customers since the COVID pandemic began. For restaurants, this has included a sharp increase in take out or drive thru business — and often creative solutions to manage the flow of traffic. At the Maplewood Chick-fil-A, during busy times the employees take and deliver customer orders instead of using the intercom system. One downside this plan, however, is windy and wet weather.

To provide protection for customers and employees, Chick-fil-A contacted Acme Awning to implement a custom canopy solution. Acme Awning fabricates awnings and canopies at the time of order, so producing custom posts, attachment plates, wind panels and more is an area in which we excel. The structure installed at the Maplewood location securely attaches to both the roof and sidewalk. Sunbrella canvas protects from the elements while the clear vinyl windows allow for natural light to flow in — but wind and rain to stay out. A win-win for customers and employees.
