Burger King has reopened some of its UK restaurants in a bid to ease people’s fast food cravings during the coronavirus lockdown, and people have queued for hours to get their hands on one.
The burger giant is aware that lockdown has transformed Brits into cooking maniacs, and is wants people to share their worst kitchen fails.
Burger King is encouraging customers to share their very worst at-home cooking attempts for the chance to receive a Whopper burger.
All you have to do is share the fail to @BurgerKingUK with the hashtag #WishItWasAWhopper.
And the winners of the worst fails will be rewarded with a vouchers to treat themselves to a Whopper – the only time it feels good to fail.
One man posted a picture of his sad-looking burger attempt after being forced to use Warburton sandwich thins as burger buns.
On top of each thin was a lonely slice of cheese and a serving of wilted salad – nice…
He wrote: “We wanted BK and we also didn’t have burger buns…. #wishitwasawhopper”.
With which Burger King replied: “These are desperate times”.
Another said: “Tried to make a homemade Whopper and ended up with this god forsaken mess”, as they attached a picture of a McDonald’s Big Mac.
Takeaway deals, discounts and offers
Burger King has plans to reopen one in every city by May 31, totalling 350 restaurants.
Katie Evans, marketing director at Burger King UK, said: “We are so pleased to be able to open more restaurants across the UK this week, including our first restaurant for customer Drive Thru – which is a huge step forward.”
Restaurants will be open from midday to 11pm, and customers will be able to place their orders via the Deliveroo or Just Eat apps.
