    $2.79

    How can you make something this delicious and be on the verge of bankruptcy ? It just doesn't make sense.

    This burger spoke to me.
    It said: "I love you."

    I've never seen a fast food burger look that good.

    I’ve had great Burger King, and I’ve had AWFUL Burger King. After the 2nd AWFUL, took me almost 7 years to get brave enough to try it again, and that was just because I was starving, and they were the easiest place to get in and out of with the truck. Last experience was good again, so, at this point, they are in my good graces again lol

    First, BK is a wholly owned subsidiary of another company. Anytime that happens, the brand starts declining. Please see Pizza Hut, Sonic, and Jimmy John's, to name a few.

    Their second problem is the franchise model, with multiple locations being owned by the same entity. When I say multiple, I mean hundreds, not dozens. This creates companies within companies and increases mid level bloat, leaving less for reinvestment and profit. Additionally, under performing locations become harder to identify and deal with. Compare that to McDonald's which to my knowledge does not let any franchisee own more than 100 stores and has been buying back legacy franchises and selling them to new owners.

    That looks good!!! I'm actually regular at BK. Especially on Wednesdays. $3 whoppers on the app on Wednesdays.....it's a shame that's a good deal now. I can remember when they were $1, and bigger. I just exposed my age and I'm not even that old lol
