Burger King has been around since 1954 and was founded by James McLamore and David Egerton. The first fast-food restaurant was opened in Miami, Florida, and became an instant hit among the locals. Once Burger King’s name was out there, it started spreading around the nation and later on, around the world.
Burger King has been sold several times to different companies, and as of 2020, it is now in the ownership of Restaurant Brands International, which is based in Canada. There are now Burger Kings in over 100 different countries, and it has become more popular overseas than in the States.
