Burger King Corporation is the second largest fast-food chain in the United States, trailing only McDonald's. The company franchises more than 10,400 restaurants and owns about 1,000 for a chainwide total exceeding 11,455, with locations in all 50 states and 56 countries. The company serves 15.7 million customers each day and over 2.4 billion Burger King hamburgers are sold each year across the globe.
Burger King’s Pizza Burger debuted in September, 2010 at its Whopper Bar restaurant in New York. The megaburger featured a 9 1/2 inch bun and four patties, cut into slices like pizza. It was topped with pepperoni, mozzarella, marinara and Tuscan sauce. The company said the burger is intended to be shared, but there are doubtlessly a large number of individuals – not to mention large individuals – who relish the challenge of downing the whole thing on their own.
