Burger King adds two new premium burgers

Burger King on Friday announced two new additions to its Chef’s Choice premium burger line available throughout March in the chain’s U.S. locations.

The trio of burgers, including the original BK Chef’s Choice burger introduced in October 2011 [3], are among ongoing menu upgrades for the No. 2 quick-service brand, which was acquired by 3G Capital in late 2010.

The new burger lineup, all of which are priced at a recommended $4.99, includes:

--Bacon & Blue: a 5.5-ounce flame-grilled patty topped with thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon and bleu cheese, red onions, sliced tomatoes, romaine lettuce and mayonnaise on an artisan bun.

--Bacon Cheddar BBQ: a 5.5–ounce patty topped with Cheddar, hardwood-smoked bacon, red onions, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, mayo and Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet ‘n Spicy BBQ sauce on an artisan bun.

The new additions join the original BK Chef’s Choice burger, a 5.5-ounce patty with thick-cut bacon, American cheese, red onions, tomatoes, romaine lettuce and savory Griller sauce on an artisan bun.

“We have seen great success with the BK Chef’s Choice burger, and the new offerings add triple the premium, made-fresh-to-order burger varieties to our menu,” Alex Macedo, senior vice president, North America marketing for Burger King, said

Miami-based Burger King has 12,400 locations worldwide.
