Burger King Franchise

Quick-service hamburger restaurant

In 1954, James McLamore and David Edgerton opened the first Burger King restaurant in Miami; selling 18 cent broiled hamburgers and milkshakes. Three years later, the company's signature Whopper was introduced, selling for 37 cents a piece. Today Burger King restaurants serve chicken nuggets, salads, a breakfast menu and kids meals. In 1998, the company opened its 10,000th location in Sydney, Australia.

The franchise granted can be operated at one of three locations and facility types:
  1. Institutional
    Locations: “Institutional locations” include government buildings and
    facilities, medical facilities, airports, train and bus stations, sports
    facilities, factories, corporate campuses, turnpikes, limited access
    toll roads, theme parks, zoos and educational facilities.
  2. Traditional
    Burger King Restaurant Facility: A self-contained, full size Burger
    Restaurant which is located and operated on a site as a
    freestanding building or within another building structure such as a
    shopping mall. A Traditional Burger King Restaurant does not share any
    common areas with any other businesses and serves the standard approved
    menu for Burger King Restaurants.
  3. Non-Traditional Burger King Facility: A Burger King Restaurant may be located at a site which
    includes other businesses, such as retail, food service, gas stations,
    convenience stores, other franchised businesses or restaurants or other
    similar facilities.
