Sometimes, the best food comes on the go. We often tend to not notice how great fast food actually is, often sidelining meals from these joints as unhealthy or plainly crass. But we are here to change your notion on food from these places. In fact, not only meals from fast food places can be gastronomical wonders – they can be nutritious and bring some much needed joy in people’s lives!

But, for the case of Zip’s, we’d like to focus on the greatness of drive-in restaurants. Yes, they still exist, and still provide hearty meals for everyone to enjoy!
Zips Drive In Locations and Brief Overview on the Brand’s Story
Similar to other restaurants that cater to providing yummy meals for their market, Zip’s constant push to provide only the best food for its customers makes it a standout place to eat.
But what does make it differ from other establishments is its unique experience that it provides, with a balance of genuinely delicious treats and an overwhelming customer-centric service.
In fact, when it was first founded way back in 1953, Zip’s was originally catered to serve a specific group of individuals. Based in Kennewick, Washington, the restaurant was actually created by Robert Zuber (who had the nickname, Zip) to provide healthy and yummy food for scientists and other employees working in the nearby nuclear companies in the area.
Mainly because of the specific market (and with the plan to provide for these hard-working individuals), Zip’s was able to create its wonderful menu ,that even today, is a winner for those lucky enough to visit the said establishments.
Another appealing facet that Zip’s has is its drive-in model. A hit during its age, these establishments dwindled down when more fast food restaurants popped up. But because of Zip’s new owner, Harrold Fettig’s (who was originally a manager of the restaurant before buying the brand from Zuber) decision to open up new branches and expand in the Northwest region of the country.
