Without a doubt, Burger King has got to be the best burger joint out there. However, thanks to lockdown restrictions across the pond, they have resorted to posting the unexpected on their Twitter page…
Fast food is so damn good.
There’s just something about it…
Alongside the convenience (and let’s face it, that addictive taste), the industry has developed something of a cult around it.
For true fast food obsessives, the idea that you only have a limited amount of time to try something out before it vanishes forever is basically irresistible.
2020 has definitely left us all feeling pretty strange.
Yep, that’s right.
They have encouraged customers to support food rivals; including KFC, Pizza Hut, Subways, and Greggs.
“We never thought we’d be asking you to do this. Just like we never thought we’d be encouraging you to order from KFC, Subway, Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, Five Guys, Greggs, Taco Bell, Papa John’s, Leon… or any of the other independent food outlets, too numerous to mention here.”
“In short, from any of our sister food chains (fast or not so fast). We never thought we’d be asking you to do this, but restaurants employing thousands of staff really need your support at the moment.”
“So, if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, takeaway or drive-thru.”
“Getting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing. Take care, Team Burger King UK.”
And the whole post has got everyone talking, with one Twitter user posting: “Pure class. Hope your store staff, social team etc. all manage to pull through.”
Another wrote: “I’ve always liked Burger King and stuff like this makes me respect you and your brand even more! I wish more companies would be like you.” While a third person said: “Haven’t had a Burger King in some time. I know what I’m getting this weekend. Whopper!”

But under the new restrictions on November 5 “hospitality venues like restaurants, bars and pubs must close, but can still provide takeaway and delivery services. However, takeaway of alcohol will not be allowed.”
Let’s hope things go a little more smoothly for them this time.
