Burger King South Africa will open doors of its first stores in Gauteng on Saturday, 1 February 2014. Fans in Gauteng will see three stores open on one day located at Park Station, Rivonia Road and the first store at a Sasol in Centurion.
The global burger giant has seen unparalleled success since opening stores in South Africa in May 2013 and plans to build on this by growing its national footprint.
Jaye Sinclair, Burger King SA CEO, says that Burger King will launch in the first quarter of 2014 in line with the company’s expansion strategy within Southern Africa. “We have seen overwhelming success since entering the local market and are confident that our offering will be well received. Our flame-grilling heritage and our obsession with delivering great-tasting, high-quality and freshly-made products sets us apart,” says Sinclair.
Sinclair says the exclusive deal penned in July with fuel-retailer Sasol to roll out Burger King restaurants across the Sasol national network, will see its first store opening in February.
“Fans can be assured that we’re planning an exciting campaign for our Johannesburg launch,” concludes Sinclair.
