Burger King History

Burger King began in 1953 in Jacksonville, Florida as Insta-Burger King.  The company was founded by Keith J. Kramer and Matthew Burns.

In 1957, the Whopper is introduced.

The company was purchased by David Edgerton and James McLamore in 1959 and renamed to Burger King.

By 1967, there were over 250 Burger King locations and the company was purchased by the Pillsbury Company.

In 1975, the company introduces drive-thru windows.

In 1989, Grand Metropolitan PLC acquired Pillsbury and Burger King.

In 1997, Grand Metropolitan merges with Guinness & Co to form Diageo PLC.

In 2002, the Burger King is purchased from Diageo by Texas Pacific, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs.

In 2006, the company goes public.

In 2010, Burger King is acquired by 3G Capital and taken private.

Today, Burger King is one of the largest fast food chains in the world.  There are over 12,000 restaurants in 73 countries.

Well I was appalled to see your latest ad..Now you have the most recognizable icon of American history..holding a burger and mouthing ‘YUMBO’!!!!
Apparently your ‘appropriate management team’ are asleep at the wheel.
Have you any idea how this looks to the rest of the world?..how America ..especially Burger King..disrespects their own President.
I won’t visit your restaurant ever again..and neither will many of my friends. I am not the only one to find this ad insulting,in fact , some are readying comments for Facebook and Twitter. Shame on you.

Stopped at BK store #BK09993 in Blaine, Mn at 7:42 sunday 11/16/2014 and ordered 2 Dbl Saus Egg Chz Crois and 2 Small Hash Browns. When we got home we discovered that BK did not give us what we ordered. We did not get the 2 Dbl Saus but got 2 single Saus but were charged for 2 Dbls. Plus the hash browns were like cardboard,( AGAIN).What is wrong with this Store??? This is not the first time this has happened. We constantly have a problem with this store. One, we don’t get what we order. Two, we get yesterdays hash browns or fries. Three, BK keeps making the same mistakes so there is no excuse for this problem other than you have a Piss Poor Management team and cooks that do not pay attention to their work or they can’t read. If you want to stay in business in this city I would advise you to fix the problem or I will go to my City council members and ask that this BK store be removed on the grounds that you charge for something we don’t receive and serving rotten food or food that has been sitting under the warming lite for longer than 10 min. The fries should not sit for no more than 5 to 7 min. Do something about it……………………………..Enough is Enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter , two granddaughters , and myself stopped at your Seaford, Delaware store today ., Saturday Nov .15 , at noon .The store was crowded to the door and the drive thru was just as bad . We almost didn’t stay but we did and were very happy that we did .The crew that was on duty were so efficient that they moved the people right on through .Everyone of them were courteous and friendly , as well as helpful .On behalf of my family and myself I want to thank and congratulate each and everyone of that crew for providing a very pleasant dining atmosphere .The crew was also very accurate taking our order.

My experience at this location:

Burger King
14139 US Highway 19
Hudson, Fl 34667-1168
Untied States

After my son’s soccer game, we decided to eat inside at the above address. We placed our order and when we went to sit at a table there were only 5 booths available which were occupied by other customers. The rest of the restaurant’s tables and booths were baracaded with chairs surrounding access to them like a primeiter being blocked. I believe the way the employers had it arranged was defientely a safety hazard. I do have pictures of this ordeal. Mind you it was 8:25PM. When I spoke to an employee by the name Heather, she said ” you should have cooked dinner at home if you didn’t like the seating arrangement.” I was appalled! Then I walked up to the registers and ask to speak to the manager on duty. John, manager on duty, told me this BK is a franchise and they make their own rules. I have never in my life been treated so poorly as a paying customer at a restaurant. But that’s not all, there were 3 other employers talking about how drunk they got at a party last night. This BK location has to have a corporate investigation as to how crappy it is being operated. I will be calling the main head quarters Monday as soon as it opens to take inbound calls. My son had to witness all this ridiculousness.

Yours truly,

A very dissatisfied customer

I went to the Burger King #3719 in Odessa, Texas and Ordered a Spicy Chicken Sandwich that was made on half of the Hamburger bun I called the store and request to talk with the manager or the person in charge they told me that Mrs. Carolyn was busy preparing an order but the true is that she was gossip with a friend I told the employee that the manager was talking to one of her friends then she answer the phone and told me to take it at it’s or I could go to another restaurant that we have here in Odessa, TX.
Sonic, Whataburger, star I remark to her that she was not a good manager and she mentioned to me to stop going to the restaurant because she will call the police and get a restrict order for me that she has my phone number from the caller ID so One simple Question it’s the way to business in that restaurant I have been a regular customer but from now on I guess I will take her advice and go some where else to do my business.
I feel sorry for the employees that work in that specific BURGER KING RESTAURANT #3719 in Odessa, Texas. because with a no good manager like Mrs. Carolyn it will not have more customers.


Cassie November 2, 2014 at 7:04 pm

Went to BK @ 5:30 on 11-2-14 Sunday evening sign sags open until 10:00 employess in the building but come to door and said where closed very rude. Didn’t answer our question about why their were closed 5 hours early. Called the 24 hr custome service 1-800 number stayed on for 1hr. No one ever picked up. Will NEVER go back and this is a small town in Plaquemie, La and I will tell everyone about this and ask everyone too post their complaints as well. Our BK needs too go open a Wendy’s or something we need better customer service and etc.

So this burgerking in Thornton Co off of 104th an federal sucks they are slow an rude they refuse to fix their soda machine the fruit punch is always out an the bathroom floor is always wet.


Albert Braamskamp October 28, 2014 at 9:46 am

An outrage!!
Since when is it corporate policy of BK to allow national monuments being demolished to make way for a BK restaurant. On Aruba this is possible. Does BK not have respect for the cultural heritage of Aruba? There are plenty of places in Aruba to open up a restaurant. Me and my family wil not eat in a BK restaurant ever again.
Good bye to the whopper!!!


rona coster October 28, 2014 at 8:22 am

How could I express my outrage to you as a citizen of the island of Aruba, that your local franchise holder just demolished a registered monument in the neighborhood of Noord in order to build a BK. Who will listen to me??

Your local franchise holder has brought shame on the brand, by his greedy actions.

read and see:

His response and public reaction:

Last Saturday, October 25, 2014, early in the morning Arubans had the media, including Facebook with so many critics because a Burger King Franchise Holder in Aruba had bulldozer bulldozing a 93 year-old Aruban Monument. Apparently the owner is going to build a Burger King on this spot. Arubans are not only mad but sad also to see a very beautiful landmark in the area of Noord. Noord has all the high-rise hotels and a well-developed area. As a result of this, there is a boycott going on now to boycott theis new Burger King establishment. Very sad day for the Arubans.


Teodora October 26, 2014 at 11:32 am

Burger King Aruba franchise holder just demolished one of the island’s premier monumental buildings because the monument bureau conditions were too strict…this created a major upheaval and disgust and some are truly considering a Burger King boycott in Aruba.

I went thru the drive thru yesterday afternoon after work. I ordered 2 coffees, one large and one medium. I ordered cream and sugar in both. First the older woman with red hair was very rude and didn’t even know what I ordered, then she handed me our coffees and informed us she put in the sugar and we could do the cream ourselves. So I asked for a straw to stir and proceeded to put the cream in at the window. One of my creams was rotted and chunky, so I asked for a new one. The same lady at the window grabbed my coffee and poured it out at the window spilling half on my car, then walked away from the window completely. The manager then came to make me a new coffee, so I asked if she could please put in the cream and sugar and she said mhm and also was very rude! Who runs a business like this? Very unprofessional. I will not go back and I will inform everyone in this small town of my experience.

I would suggest that you file out an on-line complaint form and you will get results! I had a bad experience, filled out a corporate complaint form and was personally called by the Area Manager …. just saying :-0 … S

I purchased 5 10 piece chicken nuggets. I had to wait. Not a problem. They were out of barbecue sauce. They brought my order to my car. It smelled like burnt grease. I went on to work. I am a tractor trailer driver. This was my dinner. It wasn’t fit for my dog to eat. Talked to store told to bring back
I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I brought the food back this morning. I talked with Gabe, assistant manager, and he was very rude and looked very hateful at me before we even spoke. He told me he couldn’t give me cash back even though I paid cash
He finally gave me cash and told me to have a good day. I said, “I will because I will eat somewhere else
“. He said,” It won’t hurt me!” What a was to deal with customers. I went to college for business management and learned customer satisfaction is priority. They are always right. Evidently, at BK that’s not the case or that is what Gabe thinks. This was at BK on Running Horse Road Platte City, Missouri. I was there today at about 6:10 a.m.. Please roll back the camera and watch it. He should receive time off, demoted or fired. My phone number is 816_294_xxxx. Thanks

I would like to send a email to the corporate office to ask for sponsorship with a few coupons to be given to our kids in our academic program in rewarding them with achieving good grades on the upcoming report card and throughout the year.


Fred October 18, 2014 at 1:39 pm

I just came back from BK in N.Andover Mass.
I would be ashamed if I owned BK, I always loved BK, never went any place else .
I order 2 # 3′s a root beer and a milk shake the meal
Root beer they gave me diet coke I think Milk shake shrunk you should be embarrassed
Burgers were terrible tasting I threw them out.

#1 if you want to make a profit go up on the price,don’t shrink everything.
People think with their eyes not their head, $16.35 down the drain Terrible Terrible
When you ask the attendant a question they need a dictionary to answer.

I live in El Dorado, Arkansas and haven’t been to our Burger King in a very long time, but the other night after our local football game, my boyfriend and I decided to go in for a Chicken Sandwich.
From the moment I walked in, I noticed how dirty and unclean it was. I wondered why no one else was eating, but figured out real quick why. The door going into Burger King was filthy and the floors and tables were are dirty. Three of the employees were sitting in one of the booths talking on there cell phone’s and cutting up like we wasn’t even there. I went up to order and one of the ladies sitting down ask from the booth did I want to place and order? I said really, did you just ask that? We went ahead and ordered, but I was so hesitant to eat the food because of how dirty the resturant was.
Please look into this Burger King and how it is being run, because if you don’t get them lined out, this Burger king will close due to lack of customers.

Burger King does not take care of its employees. My son was injured on the job and taken to the hospital by his manager at 3:30 in the morning back in April 2014. The manager neglected to fill out the proper paperwork indicating it was a work-related injury and my son began getting the bills. He turned each one over to BK, assured each time that they would take care of it. Here it is October. The account has gone to collections in my son’s name. I have tried several times to contact Rita Reed, the manager of Burger King 13144 in Concord, NH, but she has not returned my calls. Since the merger with Tim Hortons on August 26, the number for the corporate office in Miami has been disconnected and I am unable to find a new number for that office. I was able to get through to a corporate number and was transferred to an extension for Worker’s Comp claims. I was asked if the injury occurred at a corporate location or a franchise. When I said franchise, she said that I needed to deal with the local restaurant directly. I’ve been told by an employee at store #13144 that since the merger, they no longer have insurance. BK is essentially trying to stick my son with a $2000 bill for a work-related injury that has been mishandled from day one and refuse to work with us to get this resolved properly. I caution anyone who works for BK or who is thinking of applying to think that the company will take care of you if something happens, because they won’t.

I worked for a Burger King earlier this year and had to wait for a month and a half to get my first paycheck. I had to threaten them with a lawyer and BBB in order for them to get the ball rolling. There was no phone for this particular location so I had to call my manager each day to see if I was scheduled (they didnt let you see the schedule because they constantly changed it) and half the time they would say I was like 2 hours late for work. This would not have been the case if the employees knew when they had to work beforehand. The restaurant fired 2 night employees leaving me to take up their slack. I told them I have no problem with that as long as I was allowed more time to complete the work. They didnt allow it and I left. I am now trying to get back into school and need my tax returns from last year. Problem is, they never sent me one!
