Burger King Franchise UK

A Whopper® of an opportunity.

Every day, more than 11 million guests visit BURGER KING® restaurants around the world. And they do so because our restaurants are known for serving high-quality, great-tasting, and affordable food.  

Founded in 1954, BURGER KING® is the second largest fast food hamburger chain in the world. The original HOME OF THE WHOPPER®, our commitment to premium ingredients, signature recipes, and family-friendly dining experiences is what has defined our brand for more than 50 successful years. 

Burger King first entered the UK market in 1976, with Restaurant Brands International Inc. and Bridgepoint coming together in 2017 to create a Master Franchise joint venture (BKUK), to build on the established commercial success of the Burger King® brand in the UK 

Today, Burger King is the third most recognised Quick Service Restaurant chain in the UK with 533 restaurants as of June 2022, 266 of which are directly owned, and the remainder sub-franchises. 

Burger King UK is focused on partnering with new and existing sub-franchisees to open 40-50 new Burger King restaurants per year.
