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.

ive been in this business for thirty years. first all the whopper I just got was discusting. the tomatoes were over ripe, onions were clear, lettuce was clear, burger was so sloppy that it would not stay on bun. when I called to voice my concerns, an employee, said he was one of the managers, hung up on me when I called again.another manager told me to bring that sloppy, dripping mess back. you should leave the country. maybe some of those savages will like that. not me.

I was hired at burger king , my name on the schedule just not the exact date or time to start working I was wondering what is going on?


P Mulder September 10, 2014 at 9:31 pm

I am so saddened to hear Burger King is thinking of leaving our country. Jobs are needed here.
If your company leaves, I have no choice but to stop eating at your restaurants. I will also influence all I know to boycott your business also.
Please rethink this decision.


Brian September 12, 2014 at 6:38 pm

The bulk of the jobs will remain in the US. Only one, perhaps two percent of overall Burger King jobs will be relocated, so if that’s your issue, it really is a non-issue.

Thank Washington for setting a corporate tax rate so high that it actually saves money to go through the expense of moving operations to another country.


Tiffany Blankenship September 6, 2014 at 8:20 pm

I’m am so so so DISGUSTED with my (Tuscola Illinois’) BK. The owners husband (Doug Honn) LICKED HIS SPATULA while cooking my food! And then, to top it all off, he went to the rest room wearing his kitchen gloves, and when he returned to cooking he did NOT change his gloves! And then when I spoke up about what I seen I was INSULTED BY THE MANAGEMENT. I WILL NEVER EAT HERE AGAIN. This is my entire families favorite restaurant and ill be damned if we’re going to get food poisoning and insulted from the NASTY people you have running this place! I will tell everyone that I come across about my horrible experience and I will ensure that this place gets little to no business until the entire management is replaced! Mcdonalds here I come!


Tiffany Blankenship September 6, 2014 at 8:24 pm

and to make it worse, he was yelling at all of his employees, and telling his high school student son that he was not allowed to stop working until he himself was off of the clock! um, Slavery?! WTH


R. Halpern August 30, 2014 at 4:58 am

If you move your corporate offices out of the United States of America, my husband and I will never eat at your establishment. In addition, we will influence our friends and family to avoid Burger King.

I am tired of the greed of American corporations who move out of the country in the interest of their bottom line.

I am a great believer in capitalism and understand the need to make a profit. A consideration must also be a concern for the well-being of this country.

Sincerely Yours,

Mrs. Paul Halpern


Linda September 3, 2014 at 12:09 pm

“If you move your corporate offices out of the United States of America, my husband and I will never eat at your establishment. In addition, we will influence our friends and family to avoid Burger King.”

I feel and will do exactly the same thing. No more buying at Burger King.


Val B August 29, 2014 at 4:18 pm

I saw the video of the cruel treatment and torture of the dairy cows and will NEVER buy from this company again. You cant even monitor the places you buy from. This was horrendous


PK August 29, 2014 at 3:46 pm

Hello Burger King,
We have started a petition on facebook of 1,000′s of users to boycott you throughout all of America because if you want to desert us we will drop you there are enough other fast food restaurants in this Great County to not have to eat from a TURNCOAT. So bye bye and hope you lose a lot of money on loss of sales here. I will never eat at your establishment again, the Americans will give their DOLLAR Votes to those that remain loyal to America not foreign countries.


Linda September 3, 2014 at 12:10 pm



Mary Hamilton August 29, 2014 at 1:26 pm

Real cute, moving head quarter’s to Canada! I’ll never, ever eat at burger king again! You guys think you are the only place to eat in America or what? You need to remember where you got your start!

Hello Burger King.CEO: Bernardo Vieira Hees
CFO: Daniel S. Schwartz
COO: Flavia Faugeres
I Have always thought BK was the way better burger joint not McDonald’s I always ate at BK and when I had to eat at McD I would more often than not throw-up there food I’m serious so I never ate at McDonalds again. and as I grew up I liked BK but when I started eating better at 20 years old I never ate another BK burger again and I am 55 years old now. But I heard the most stupidest thing the other day about BK wanting to move out of America the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the greatest country in the world hands down!! And when I found out you really meant what you said I was dumb founded, WHY would you want to leave America where you are safe and sound you help your country be the greatest it can be by paying taxes like I do. You see I fought for my country something you white collars have never done but you helped pay for the products we needed in war thank you for that. I now live in pain every day of my life and need vary large amounts of morphine daily I almost gave all. what saved me you may ask well BK did by paying your share of taxes I had the very best doctors and nurses and surgeons that money could buy I thank you for that I really do!!!

Yes I know you pay a lot of taxes and the Share-Holders want more money in their pockets, everyone wants more money well almost everyone. You see I live on $3,500.00 a month and I would never ever think about moving out of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA never, but I guess some high living people need more and more and more when is enough enough when if it ever is to people like you high and snooty. I have a home with mortgage of $178,000.00 and bills and a nice car but more money well no not if it meant moving out of the UNITED STSTES OF AMERICA and abandoning my country being a traitor to AMERICA like the other companies that jump,Warren Buffett can stick his money up his ass or maybe that’s how he is giving it to you BK huh; if youdecide to leave and be a traitor take Buffett with you please. I can not believe what rich snooty people like you all will do for a buck is it not a great feeling to have that you know you help your country with taxes and the help all of us received due to our injuries in the Veterans Administration’s Hospitals, that does not make you proud to be an AMERICANS you gave us legs, arms, plates in our heads, the best Doctors and equipment money can buy this does not make you a proud AMERICAN and say money well spent not at all??

Wow I am really sorry about what I have to say to you now, before you leave AMERICA the GREAT country call a seamstress and have a whole bunch of RED letter TEE’s made to put on your backs and chests that will stand for TRAITOR or maybe an A for adultery going to another country??? Well BK I guess I have said enough to you and your share holders and all else who will be going with a sinking ship. I dare you to do one thing let all employees who are going to be traitor read this Email I dare you!!! phone 760-699-xxxx

Sincerely a Great American
Steven Lewis

I will never again patronize a Burger King and I will encourage all of my family and friends to do the same. If you can’t help support the country where you made your fortune, you don’t deserve to take advantage of the resources those taxes help support: infrastructure, highways, traffic laws, police and fire protection, etc. So move your head offices to Canada. But you will find that you are going to lose customers here in the United States.


Mick Evanson August 27, 2014 at 9:55 pm

I read your post on Responsibility. What a bunch of BK-BS. If you have decided to not support the country that helped make you what you are, my family will no longer be buying anything from your company. I sent this same message to Walgreens and they made the right decision. Will You?


John August 27, 2014 at 4:27 pm

Americans own 90% of Canada I think, setting up offices is common. I have tried to set up in the US. I suggest Americans quit buying cheap goods from Made in Somewhere else before they complain.


Harold Blincoe August 27, 2014 at 10:11 am

My family and I have always enjoyed eating in your food Establishment for over 20 years. I was very disappointed to read that your company has decided to buy another company outside the usa to reduce your tax % that you pay. I believe it is called tax inversion? I am also e mailing to my congressman to see if they can close this tax loophole. I believe this is exactly what wealthy people do with their money, they send it to off shore accounts to avoid and hide their money . Our government has closed that gap and I hope it will do the the same thing you are doing.
What you are doing is legal, but it is still wrong.
Since I can only control how I spend my money, I am very sorry to inform you that my family will not be going to to your restaurant till you change your decision. I have enjoyed your food( whopper and Cheese) but feel very strongly that your business decision leaves me with no other choice. I am also sending e mail to all of my friends to encourage them to not to go to your restaurant.
It sadden me to think that `your company is making a very good profit feels a need to not pay a fair American tax . I guess that you are not a true American company since you wish to move your headquarters.
Please do not send me or offer me any coupons, for I have decided and will not not change my decision till you decide that the right decision that customer loyalty is more important the profit margins .
Harold Blincoe


gary August 27, 2014 at 1:48 am

I live in frankenmuth mi. and we buy burger kings 3 or 4 times a week. We also like to buy breakfest if we are in there early enough. BUT, if you move to Canada just to save on American taxes — Mc Donalds will be seeing our business from now on and will be the same for all our friends too. I work in the building trades and will tell every one I work with to not buy either, and I have Many, Many, Many, Many, friends.!!!!!!!!!


Judith Genoud August 26, 2014 at 10:49 pm

My husband and I have frequented Burger King because you offer a good veggie burger on your menu at a reasonable price. Because you have decided to enter into an inversion with Tim Horton’s and NOT pay US taxes, we will NOT be eating at your establishments in the future!


d rister August 26, 2014 at 8:58 pm

I loved burger kings food but vow to never buy anything again after learning of their blatant tax avoidance by moving headquarters to Canada. Just move all your restaurant s there too. We don’t need businesses like you in the USA!!!!


Harold Heath August 26, 2014 at 4:55 pm

Skipping out on the good old USA ? Eat crap


Mike August 26, 2014 at 1:41 pm

If the merger noted below is complete, I will no longer buy from Burger King as they will not be paying their fair share of taxes. They can sell all their food in Canada if they move their corporate offices there to dodge taxes.

From CNN on 8/26/2014:

Burger King and Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons have announced they are merging, a deal that would allow the burger seller to move out of the U.S. and possibly cut its tax bill.

The merged company will be based in Canada and have 18,000 restaurants worldwide.

By moving north of the border, Burger King would be completing what is called an “inversion” — a strategy that allows U.S. firms to lower their tax bills by merging with a foreign company, and then relocating to the new country.

Corporate tax rates are lower in Canada than in the U.S.

A friend of mine use to work for Burger King in Hot Springs, Ar. There’s this manager there by the name of Beverly, who is unprofessional and mean. She acts as if she is miserable and wants everyone around her to be miserable as well. She has a lot of kids that work there that are in college and instead of her encouraging them to complete school, she tells them that they will not make it so they may as well continue to work. I once heard her on the phone with someone who was calling in and then she gets off the phone and calls someone else and tells them that this person called in and told them that this person sister left her at home with the kids and no food and that the woman couldn’t come to work because she didn’t want to leave her nieces and nephews home alone. Then I found out later that the lady got put out because Beverly told her sister what she said. Then today I was in there for breakfast, and this lady (a worker) comes in and Beverly starts fusing at her about the pants that she had on (plain black pants), she tells the worker that she didn’t like her pants and to go home and change. The worker told her that she has to walk to work because her ride was going to be late and that she would have to walk 6 miles back home to change, Beverly told her to get to walking. I was so disgusted, that I just left my food sitting the table and left. I’m not sure what kind of business Burger King is running, but I do know that Beverly needs some to be trained on how to treat people. She’s an abusive bully! I use to wonder why there for a while I would see different faces every week. I know now. If doctors, nurses, or even teachers did to people what she has and is doing, they would have lawsuits out the tale. Because people need their jobs and she knows they need their jobs, does not mean she can treat them badly. Please someone who is capable of getting the point across please do something. I’m in there at least twice a week. My next letter will be to the editor of the Hot Springs Newspaper. This is abuse and it has to stop.


Larry Meyers August 18, 2014 at 10:23 pm

For years I have a loyal customer because of you BK veggie burger option. My local(4020) and nearest restaurant is at 5061 S. Jellison Way, Littleton, CO. In the past when employees made mistakes in making my BK Veg burger, the manager always made it right. Today I came in this store regarding a previous incident on July 8 2014. You manager, Bryan, said he was not going do ANYTHING about my complaint. He was rude, unkempt and down right unfriendly. I told him I was going contact corporate and this would be last time I set in this restaurant.
I suspect sales sales are down in this store because of issues like this.

Drove to drive thru 1 truck was in front of me, I sat for good 10 min.guy started blowing horn when someone finally came on speaker took his order then I drove up no other vehicle in line but his truck so I sat at menu board for about 3 mins. More said hello, was told will be with me in a minute. Well sat for 7 mins. Backed out went into lobby 2 guys were talking to 4 employees no one in drivethru or in lobby so nicely I decided to see if I could get my order taken. No way then they was joking around no one working I asked if I could get my order taken and was very rudely was told they busy. Well I left I noticed Sonic was busy and McDonald’s was also busy but got my order taken and got my order and was spoken to nicely in less than 10mins. This isn’t first time reporting them. I have gift cards for my son but really dont know if Im going back

Deborah August 12, 2014 at 10:50 am

Ashland,virginia 23005 location. The breakfast food was terrible. The cooking oil in the deep fryer needed changing. The food tasted rancid and was unedible. Is this a standard company policy to save money? I will not return. Also, the lady at the counter gave me the impression she had rather be somewhere else. she was not a very good public represenative. Maybe she doesn’t need to work. I was very dissatisfied with the food and the service ( no manners, no smile, no thank you). We wasted our time and money. I did not get it “my way”! No special order-just wanted good food and good service. We got neither.
Two thumbs down!!!!!


Mrs.E August 11, 2014 at 6:17 pm

I went to the burger king on the 1200 of bissonett last night and had the worst experience of my life! The manager was so rude and her manager was just as non chalant* I went through the drive thru placed my order after having to get my orderer corrected 3 times, she was saying that my magnetic strip on the back side of my cc wasn’t working? ?? I live just right around the corner from the bk so I went home to get another card. When I came back, I asked the girl( Alva or ava) if my food was still warm, she replied:How am I supposed to know, do you want me to stick my hands in your food??? Excuse me??? I replied: Ma”am, thats not what I asked you. Shevsaid well , I mean … do you want me to to redo your order, by that time , I was livid!: Told her as a matter of fact, I do. When I got my food, buffalo chicken tenders were all over the inside of my bag fries everywhere I had her redo them and now ive been sitting at the drive thru 10 to 15 minuets. Shes gone back and fourth with my food so much by the time I left all my bags were ripped!!! I took pictures, went and showed alvas manager in the morning. Her namw is sheryl, she was just as non chalant…. No offers of compensation, nothing! I spent 35 bucks gor horrible service and nasty attitude! !!


Tysheckia Mills August 6, 2014 at 10:19 pm

I went to burger king on bluebonnet and order to different order and the manager Valeria told me I couldn’t get to cups of ice water cause it was gone to make her inventory high I said I taught water was free she told me im just saying she was the rudes manager I have ever seen


Betty Buxton August 4, 2014 at 3:28 am

I stopped in Burger King in Dilley, Texas for breakfast and ordered oatmeal and a breakfast sandwich. The oatmeal was two small clumps of cold oatmeal with nothing else that was advertised to go on it. It apparently was the last of what they had. They should never have put something as awful looking In front of a customer. I have not had any desire to take my business back to Burger King. I did take it back and requested my money back and told them they should be ashamed to give a customer something that looked so awful.

Themore Uknow July 10, 2014 at 7:26 pm

Okay listen up people, because you’re killing me.

Most Burger King locations are franchises and are not owned by BK Corp. Don’t complain about your experience at a BK here because it won’t change anything. You need to go ask who the owner is at the BK in question and get their contact info. Then contact them.
