A neighboring McDonald’s is now providing direct delivery to Tesla owners charging their electric automobiles at a Tesla Supercharger station.
When new charging stations are built, operators strive to locate them near facilities that users may enjoy while their vehicles are charging.
Restrooms, coffee shops, and restaurants are the primary topics of discussion.
Some EV owners have favorite charging stations based on the facilities available along some popular routes with many charging stations.
On Highway 5 between Los Angeles and the Bay Area, for example, Tesla offers roughly 6 Supercharger stations within a one-charge distance.
Tesla drivers have a few alternatives on where to stop if they have enough charge.
One of such stations is a relatively new Tesla Supercharger in Firebaugh that boasts 56 stalls, making it one of the largest in the world.
Around the charging station, there are a few places to feed, including a Little Caesars, a Subway, and a McDonald’s:
Near new Tesla Supercharger stations, several store and restaurant owners have cleverly capitalized on the captive audience they have for a limited time.
A nice example may currently be found at this Tesla Supercharger near Firebaugh.
According to some Tesla owners, McDonald’s is now providing Tesla drivers the option of having their food delivered right to their vehicle while they charge:

“Recharge with McDonald’s as you recharge your Tesla,” the fast-food restaurant said on a sign. Food is brought right to your charging station.”
It’s a rare example of a Tesla-specific company located near a Supercharger station.
Tesla, on the other hand, has been discussing the possibility of supplying more anemities.
Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, stated in 2018 that the company wants to construct a “old-school drive-in, roller skates, and rock restaurant” at one of the company’s new Tesla Supercharger sites in Los Angeles.
It was yet another Elon Musk notion that made you wonder if he was joking, but he wasn’t.
Tesla actually sought for construction permits for “a restaurant and Supercharger station” in Santa Monica a few months later.
The project was put on hold for around three years until new building permits were obtained early this year.
However, those revised designs did not include a restaurant, however they did feature one of the world’s largest Supercharger stations.
We assumed that the possibility of a Tesla restaurant in the plan was gone at that time, but Musk stated in April that he was still aiming to open a “‘50s diner” at the site.
Tesla actually filed a trademark for the use of its name in the restaurant sector earlier this month.
You might be able to grab a burger at a Tesla restaurant one day, but for now, it appears that you can order a Big Mac right at a Supercharger.
