Burger King UK has announced it will re-open a further eight restaurants across England and Scotland from Wednesday 29th April, including one for customer Drive Thru, as it continues its phased re-opening plan.
The restaurants opening for delivery only from Wednesday 29th April include Dundee, Aberdeen, Reading, Hillington, Southampton, Merton and Springfield Quay. Restaurants will be open from 12 – 11pm, and customers will be able to place their orders via Deliveroo and Just Eat.
Burger King will also re-open its first restaurant for customer Drive Thru this week, as part of a trial to open more restaurants for Drive Thru over the coming weeks. The restaurant will open in Havant, from Wednesday 29th April, between 12 – 11pm and will allow customers to place their orders via the Burger King Drive Thru, and for delivery through Just Eat or Deliveroo.
Following this week and as part of its phased re-opening plan, Burger King has also announced it plans to re-open one restaurant in every city by 31st May. In addition to the eight restaurants opening from Wednesday 29th April, Burger King will open a further 12 restaurants over the following consecutive weeks.
Safety is Burger King’s number one priority, and to enable restaurants to re-open a number of procedures have been put in place to safeguard the health of both Burger King employees and customers.
These include additional PPE such as masks and gloves for staff, stringent cleaning measures, contactless delivery options via Deliveroo and Just Eat and all Burger King staff comprehensively trained on the Government’s social distancing measures – including how to run kitchens hygienically, whilst abiding by them.
As a way of saying thank you to the UK’s NHS Heroes, Burger King UK has also announced it will continue to donate meals to staff working at NHS hospitals local to the re-opened restaurants.
Although the delivery and Drive Thru service will mean customers won’t be able to access the full Burger King menu, Burger King favourites such as the Chicken Royale, Bacon Double Cheeseburger and Whopper will all be available to order.
