Burger King was founded by Keith Kramer and Matthew Burns in Jacksonville, Florida in 1953 after Kramer visited the original MacDonald’s and it started out as Insta-Burger King.
Burger King has had a rough lifetime, unlike MacDonald’s, but has grown to be a major competitor in the burger franchise market. BK’s first change over happened as early as 1959 when Franchisee’s bought out the chain from the founders. It was these franchise’s James McLamore and David R. Edgerton from Miami, Florida that dropped the “Insta” and named it Burger King.
In 1967 they sold the company to Pillsbury who managed the chain for 22 years and in 1989 when the chain was faltering, they sold it to Grand Metropolitan, which then transferred it to Diageo. All these changes didn’t bode well, and the comp may go from bad management to worse. IN fact, it was nearly entering receivership, when in 2000 it was bought out by TPG Capital, and the sold it in 2002 to 3G Capital from Brazil for a whopping $3.26 Billion.
Ever since 3G took over, the company improved its performance, and today it has sites in over 15,000 locations around the world. It might be smaller than McDonald’s, but it has its fans, and just like the Pepsi to Coke fan status, so too the same between these two companies, where you either like a Mac or a BK, but not usually both.
An interesting fact about BK is its BK Gold Card, of which only 11 have been distributed to leading entertainment stars, these cards provide lifetime meals for free, wherever and whenever the star wants, including Hugh Laurie, Jennifer Hudson, Jay Leno and more.
