Depends on table size and layout, but each person puts together the items in full, not via assembly line. I can make make a full rack of 8 cheese coneys in under 30 seconds. I work drive thru a lot and have to often put $50-70 orders together on my own on busy shifts. I've even put together very large catering orders (in the ballpark of 100-300 coneys) together in an hour during a dinner rush in Clifton (because UC frats/sororities/AD stuffs). I'd say a table crew at the restaurants can put together an average order for a family of 4-5 in under a minute (unless there are fries, most Skylines cook fries to order and those take 3-4 minutes depending on the fryer and its servers' discression whether to take them out with the whole order or take them separately). The one in CM is more well suited for making Skyline so they can use both sides of the table, the on one I-Street doing it a la Subway is extremely inefficient. I never eat Skyline at the park (more due to not wanting chili+coasters, sounds like a terrible combination to me, the only time I consider it is before my Haunt visits and I usually eat at the one just outside the park or at Blue Ash Chili that's also close by), so I've never really seen them in action on a consistent basis. Obviously, making it all automated orders cuts down on order confusion since there's a LOT of different lingo used to order Skyline (mostly coneys). But siphoning everything to one location is going to be a pain for that staff. If you want to see how its done, assuming they're somewhat well staffed, go to one outside the park. I think KI should partner with the one just outside the park to train employees before putting them on the line in the park. I’ve been saying this for years!! I worked at a skyline for many years and watching KI workers assemble hurts to watch lol… not their fault, but at least having outside of the park skyline employees train them would help. Additionally, KI skyline is not quite the same as revalue skyline (crinkle cut fries, and I don’t *think* they shred their own cheese like skylines do) but all in all I think it would make the most sense to just have an independent skyline set up shop in the park. I’m sure this changes things financially but I know that myself and others would get in-park skyline more often if I knew it was from a “real” skyline.
