Burger King to reopen

Macclesfield’s Whopper fans can rejoice as Burger King’s Lyme Green restaurant opens its doors again following the lockdown.

The chain’s phased re-opening plan involves 40 restaurants per week opening from 25th May onwards.

Burger King has said that safety is their “number one priority”, and a number of procedures have been put in place to protect customers and staff during the pandemic.

These include face masks and gloves being provided to staff, a contactless delivery option through Just Eat and Deliveroo, and stringent cleaning procedures across restaurants.

Staff have also been trained on social distancing measures, and how to run kitchens safely and hygienically whilst abiding by them.

Due to these safety measures, some items won’t be available to order for the time being, but Burger King are reassuring customers that favourites from the Whopper to the Chicken Royale and Bacon Double Cheeseburger will all still be on the menu.

The fast food chain is aiming to re-open 350 outlets by the end of June (that’s just over two-thirds of their UK restaurants), all of which have been closed for two months due to the pandemic.

Katie Evans, Marketing Director at Burger King UK, said “We are so pleased to be able to open more restaurants this week and slowly but surely get back to ‘normal’, ensuring all safety measures are in place.”
