Burger King was founded in 1954, and it is the second largest fast food hamburger chain in the world. The company's main competitor is McDonald’s, which is the largest fast food hamburger chain. The headquarters for Burger King is located in Miami, Florida. Pillsbury Company used to own Burger King in 1967, and the company changed ownership many times in succeeding years before being owned by the Restaurant Brands International today. In 2014, Burger King merged with Tim Hortons, the Canadian doughnut and fast-food chain, which led to the creation of the Restaurant Brands International parent company.
The Whopper is Burger King’s signature food product, but the combo meals are well-known. Combo is short for combination, which includes the sandwich or main dish plus side and a drink. The king combo specifically featured four burgers of your choice, nine chicken nuggets, nine onion rings, two different dipping sauces, four regular fries, and a 1.5-liter soft drink. For the burger you could choose from “black angus, steakhouse, double whopper, tender crisp chicken, crispy chicken, big king, whopper, whopper with cheese, grilled chicken, or chicken royale.” This large combo meal would be ideal for a gathering of several people.
