A whopper of a news story: Trevor Bolin, current owner of Fort St John and Grande Prairie Burger King is bringing the restaurant to Dawson Creek.
The anticipated opening date will be December 2019 with a location at 901-Alaska Avenue (the old Mary Brown restaurant)
Burger King originated as the franchise “Insta-Burger King”which was created in 1953 in Florida, USA. Also patented at the time was the grill machine called the Insta-Broiler.
After the franchise was sold in 1954 it was revamped to the Burger King we know today in 1961. The new improved version of the Insta-Broiler also got a new name as the Flame Broiler giving that identifiable burger taste customers cannot forget.
With many restaurants across the USA Burger King moved to Canada by the subsidiary Burger King restaurants of Canada, Inc established in Windsor, Ontario in 1969. In 2014 Burger King merged with Tim Hortons.
Here’s to hoping for those 1969 burger prices!
