Can You Imagine a Future Where You Charge Your Tesla While Enjoying A Meal From an Old-School Drive-In?


Foodable first reported about one of the Musk brothers back in 2016 when Kimbal decided to open a grab-and-go cafe, The Kitchennette, in Memphis, Tennessee.

This time, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and the man behind SpaceX, might be the one getting into the hospitality biz. Musk is making headlines thanks to his latest tweet.

Just last September, the electric car company had announced plans to create posh convenience stores for its customers visiting charger stations.

The company had determined that Tesla owners spend around 20 to 30 minutes at the stations while charging their electric cars.

“They want to eat, they want to have a cup of coffee, and they want to use the bathroom,” said Tesla’s chief technology officer J.B. Straubel at the FSTEC restaurant conference a few months ago, as reported by “Gizmodo.”

Apparently, Tesla has already been in talks with some restaurants in order to further develop the charging stations to better serve its consumer base. However, this tweet by Elon Musk has left many excited and curious about whether or not he will follow through with his latest idea.

Some followers on Twitter were very supportive, tweeting Musk back:

Others thought he was going somewhere else with his idea:

While some were hoping Elon Musk was focused on other aspects of the company:

It’s really wonderful to see all the collaboration and ideas that came from one simple tweet. If Musk actually follows through with this, it would be not be the first time he first announces it on Twitter. He did the same when he first announced his idea for the Boring Company, which is focused on digging up tunnels underground to transport vehicles and people to alleviate traffic in major cities.
