Speaking about the launch, Ms. Uma Talreja, Chief Marketing Officer, BURGER KING® India said, “Even before we launched, we found over 4 lac consumers in India who expressed interest in Burger King on Facebook. We therefore associated with eBay India to allow customers to pre order the WHOPPER® and we sold an astounding 1200 Whoppers in 36 hours. The demand for the WHOPPER® before we launched has been encouraging and we are thankful that we have equity displayed by consumers for our brand in the country.”

The BURGER KING® India menu offers a wide variety of vegetarian & non-vegetarian burgers with quality ingredients across various price-points and is designed to help consumers find options to suit their needs.BURGER KING® has also created a special upgrade option for Indian customers where one can upgrade any burger to a combo including a beverage and fries for an additional Rs 50 only.

India is the ground for many pioneering innovations for BURGER KING®. While the menu has international classics like the iconic WHOPPER® and the Original Royale, BURGER KING® has spared no effort in understanding Indian consumers and giving them what they love. The WHOPPER® is thus available in three options – veg, chicken and mutton.

But, the real difference will come for the large cheese consuming audience with a newly created platform for India called the Melt series, with molten cheese infused recipes in various options across veg and non-veg burgers and sides. Vegetarian consumers will be spoilt for choice between crispy, spicy, vegetable, paneer, cheese, bean, long or big burgers and sides including innovative fries and desserts.
