Burger King Corporation is a restaurant company that is famous for their flame-grilled hamburgers. It was started in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton in Miami, Florida.
However, in 1959, the two founders sold their first franchise and Burger King has since grown to an incredible 14,000 stores in over 100 countries around the globe.
The company has had many set backs and was forced to sell up numerous times through the years until it merged with Tom Hortons, a donut and fast food chain back in 2014 and then grew into the fast food chain we all recognize today.
Their signature product is currently the Whopper which is a huge hamburger with a flame grilled burger, salad and sauces.
