In 1954, James McLamore and David Edgerton opened their first Burger King restaurant in Miami, Florida. These visionaries had extensive experience in restaurant business and a shared belief in the guiding principle of offering reasonably priced quality food, served quickly, in attractive, clean surroundings. Their Customer Promise today honors their original vision. The great success of the early restaurants made the Burger King concept a natural for selling franchises. Burger King Corporation pioneered dining rooms in the fast food industry when it began to enclose its patio seating in 1957. For the first time, fast-food customers could comfortably eat their food at a table inside a restaurant. Burger King Corporation demonstrated its innovation again in 1975 when it began to offer drive-thru service at its restaurants, appealing to increasingly mobile and time-conscious consumers. Today, Burger King? is the second largest hamburger restaurant chain and employs more than 360,000 people through the Burger King Corporation and its franchisees. With $11 billion in annual sales and 11,000+ restaurants worldwide, Burger King? is sizzling with growth plans.
