Founded in 1954, the Burger King brand is the second largest fast food hamburger chain in the world. The original home of the Whopper, the Burger King system operates more than 17,800 locations in more than 100 countries and U.S. territories. Almost 100 percent of Burger King restaurants are owned and operated by independent franchisees.
Burger King restaurants are known for serving high-quality, great-tasting, and affordable food, and a commitment to premium ingredients, signature recipes, and family-friendly dining experiences is what has defined the brand for more than 50 successful years.
