Burger King urges customers to buy from McDonald's: Find out why
The fast-food chain announced the remarkable move on Twitter.
Burger King has issued a remarkably generous decree by urging consumers to order from competitors like McDonald's.
This is ostensibly in a show of support for the beleaguered restaurant industry in the UK as England prepares to enter another national lockdown to curb the coronavirus on Thursday.
The chain's UK's office posted a notice to Twitter about the move over the weekend, Fox News reported.
On Saturday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a four-week lockdown to fight Covid-19 as infections continue to surge across the country.
From November to December 2, bars and restaurants will close for general service and can only provide takeaways.
"We never thought we would ask you to do this, just as we never imagined we would ask you to order from KFC, Domino’s Pizza, Subway, Five Guys, Greggs, Papa John's, Taco Bell and other independent food outlets, too numerous to mention here,” Burger King's statement said.
Whether a chain was “fast or not fast,” Burger King stressed that restaurants with thousands of employees “really need your support” during this time.
“So if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, takeaway or drive thru,” the chain continued. "Getting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing."
