BURGER KING® is a global chain of fast food restaurants. BURGER KING® Corporation is a global network covering 97 countries, including the United States. The success of BURGER KING® is largely due to the fact that the business is developing almost entirely on the principle of franchising (about 98% of restaurants). As of 2014 BURGER KING® has more than 13,000 locations in 97 countries, 66% of which are in the United States. It is interesting to note that the largest restaurant is not located in the United States, but in Europe and more precisely in Budapest, Hungary.
The company serves 15.7 million visitors daily worldwide and sells over 2.4 billion burgers each year.
The first BURGER KING® restaurant was originally named INSTA BURGER KING and opened on December 4, 1954 in Miami, Florida by James McLamore and David Edgerton, graduates of Cornell University. In 1957 our emblematic burger WHOPPER® was presented and in no time it became one of the most famous burgers in the world.
