Porter Blanchard, a senior at Manhattan High, started the Pasture Drive-In as part of his Entrepreneur class. The assignment was to create a business plan and a business. Youth Entrepreneur offers $300 for well thought out business plans. When asked about how the idea for the Drive-In all started Blanchard stated:
We were brainstorming for two months different ideas. Then one night over family dinner (school had just been canceled and the whole country shut down basically) [we] came up with the Drive-In idea in order for people to get out and do something and still abide by social distancing guidelines.
