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.

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?

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.

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 .

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.!!!!!!!!!

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!

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!!!!

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.

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

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!!!!!

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! !!

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.

I recently was hired at Burger King in MS. They had me go cheat the timer outside, cook meat in the microwave, when customers bring food back they reused it, cooked meat after it hits the floor, ring up meals as charity to boost sales, change dates but do not throw out the product, OH and let’s not forget EVERYTHING GETS REFRIED SEVERAL TIMES SOMETIMES!!! Iwent to higher up management and they said sometimes u gotta cheat to get ahead!

Reporting store #6325 The Manager Ashley has been stealing hours from her employees any where from two hours to twelve hours every week. Promising to fix it on upcoming checks only to steal more hours then she has before. I don’t know if this is one of your stores or a franchise store if not could you point me in the direction of whoever I need to talk to about this matter.

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.
