Burger King was started in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton. The first Burger King restaurant was opened in Miami, Florida. During its first year of operations, the restaurant’s menu consisted of hamburgers, French fries, soda pop and milkshakes. In 1957, Burger King introduced its signature product known worldwide as The Whopper. Burger King creatively expanded it restaurants all over the world through franchising. It is known throughout the United States as Burger King and internationally it is know as Burger King Corporation. The company has grown into over 12,000 establishments in a total of 73 countries. It serves an average of 11.4 million customers using over 37,000 employees. Although Burger King has expanded tremendously, it is headquartered in its hometown, Miami, Florida.
Although there have been many menu items added to Burger King’s menu, the Whopper is still its signature product. Customers have a choice of ordering the classic whopper with one hamburger patty, or they can order the double or tripled patty. These sandwiches can be ordered with or without cheese. The whopper can be ordered with fries and drink which Burger King calls a value meal. Other items on the menu that can be ordered as value meals include chicken and fish sandwiches. Burger King has also added a veggie burger to their menu. Other side items include onion rings, cheesy tots and funnel cake rings with icing. Burger King also serves a variety of breakfast items including sausage and egg sandwiches with hash browns. Many of their menu items can be adjusted to the customer’s taste which matches Burger King’s slogan, “Have it your way.”
