Burger King Corp. Raises the Bar on Its Innovative, WHOPPER-Centric Restaurant Concept by Offering Beer and Food Delivery Service
Burger King Corp. today announced the opening of the WHOPPER Bar in the heart of Miami’s South Beach, marking the next stage of the WHOPPER Bar’s premium, customizable restaurant experience.
The new location will open its doors next month and boasts innovative versions of America’s Favorite Burger (based on preference), the WHOPPER sandwich, with ice-cold beer on the menu.
WHOPPER Bar South Beach will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide a walk-up window for on-the-go orders as well as food delivery service for local guests.
“We are pleased to offer our guests the option of pairing America’s Favorite Burger with a great American beer in this ideal destination”. “Burger King Corp.’s development strategy for the WHOPPER Bar involves carefully targeting marquee locations that often serve as consumer destinations,” said Chuck Fallon, North America President, Burger King Corp. “Not only is South Beach in our backyard, but the warm weather, famous nightlife and colorful personality of the destination make it a great fit for a WHOPPER Bar restaurant. It also serves as a great opportunity to introduce U.S. WHOPPER Bar guests to food delivery service and the addition of beer on the menu.”
WHOPPER Bar South Beach features a modern look and feel, as well as the concept’s specialized menu dedicated to delivering America’s Favorite Burger in a highly personalized way. After customers select their sandwich, expert “WHOPPER-istas” build burgers to order from a visible toppings theater that lets guests choose from an array of more than 20 favorites, such as A.1. Thick & Hearty steak sauce, pepper bacon, guacamole and crispy onions. Exclusively at this U.S. location, restaurant guests can pair their premium WHOPPER sandwiches with an array of Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors beer products, including Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Light Lime and Miller Lite. “We are pleased to offer our guests the option of pairing America’s Favorite Burger with a great American beer in this ideal destination,” Fallon added.
In keeping with South Beach’s notoriously late-night crowd, the restaurant is open 24 hours a day to satisfy WHOPPER cravings at all hours. Burgers will be served around the clock, and breakfast is available from 5 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. WHOPPER Bar South Beach also takes advantage of Miami’s year-round sunshine with an outdoor dining area that seats more than 45 guests and for the first time ever, provides a convenient walk-up window for customers to order on the go as well as food delivery service for local guests who prefer to have the taste of the flame-broiled WHOPPER delivered to them.
In addition, the “Bar Favorites” menu features the best premium sandwiches, such as the Bourbon WHOPPER sandwich and Pepper Bacon Steakhouse XT burger. The South Beach WHOPPER Bar also debuts an exclusive addition to the Bar Favorites line-up with the BK BLACK & BLEU STEAKHOUSE XT burger, named for the bold taste of blue cheese and blackened Cajun sauce. The new, premium build features an extra thick, flame-broiled 7-ounce beef patty topped with blue cheese, pepper bacon, blackened Cajun sauce, onions, tomatoes and lettuce on a corn-dusted bun.
