Here in America, we are blessed to have a wide choice of fast-food restaurants...And even though the competition is fierce, there is always one that comes out at the top... and that's Burger King!
Founded in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1953, Burger King has been a firm fast-food favorite for years.

And there's one thing that it's particularly famous for...As the name suggests, Burger King really excels when it comes to burgers. It's how the restaurant started, and burgers are still by far the best selling item on the menu.
And with good reason.

But the fast-food chain is known not only for its delicious menu...It is also known for being family-friendly and wonderfully affordable.
There's a reason why so many families take to the chain every year...

But there's no denying that times have been extremely tough recently...

Thanks to the ongoing medical pandemic and social-distancing restrictions, it has been harder than ever before to get access to Burger King's services.

Firstly, a customer must have the Burger King app...

Sadly, a lot of children have been left without normal meals during this pandemic...

They wanted to make a difference...

And, on the flip-side of the pandemic...

But they're still being cautious of the lingering threat of the virus.
via: GettyWe may be gradually coming out of lockdown, but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods just yet... And Burger King is all too aware of this.
The chain has been taking extra precautions when it comes to the safety of their staff and their customers...
via: GettyAnd this includes facemasks, disposable gloves, extra hygiene measures, and a limited number of customers per restaurant.
But, in Germany, they have taken their safety measures to a whole new level.
via: GettyThe German brains behind Burger King have come up with a rather inventive way of keeping their customers socially-distanced... And it is amazing.
Speaking about their invention, a representative explained:
