What to eat now: Burger King UK to re-open almost three quarters of restaurants by end of June

Burger King UK announced it will re-open a further 35 restaurants from 11th May, and 72 restaurants from 18th May, across England, Wales and Scotland, as part of its continued phased re-opening plan.

Burger King UK’s phased re-opening plan commenced on 16th April. In just over one month, the fast food chain will have reached the re-open milestone of 350 locations for delivery and drive thru, equalling three quarters of restaurants in the UK.

The restaurants re-opening for delivery and Drive Thru from 11th May include Tottenham Hale, Hedge End, Hartlepool, Stirling, Altens, Wrexham Border, Cumbernauld, Leeds Beeston, Bishopsbriggs, Wednesbury, Wilenhall and Elgin. Restaurants will open from 12 – 11pm, and customers will be able to place their orders via Deliveroo and Just Eat.

Following this, Burger King has also announced its plans to re-open an additional 72 restaurants from 18th May, and 40 restaurants per week from w/c 25th May onwards.

Safety is Burger King’s number one priority, and to enable restaurants to continue to re-open a number of procedures have been put in place to safeguard the health of both Burger King employees and customers, following detailed operational testing.

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.

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.
