The burger chain is encouraging people to order food how they can during the lockdown, whether it be drive-through or takeaway, to save the continued employment of staff in the hospitality sector.
In a statement posted on its UK Twitter account, Burger King said: “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).”
They added: “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.”
