Main article: History of Burger King
The predecessor of what is today the international community Burger King fast food chain was founded in 1953 in Jacksonville, Florida as Insta-Burger King. The founders and owners, Kieth J. Kramer and uncle of his wife, Matthew Burns, opened their first stores around a piece of equipment known as the Insta-flesh. The oven broiler Insta-has been so successful for cooking hamburgers, they needed all of their franchises to carry the device. After the original company began to falter in 1959 it was purchased by Miami, Florida, James McLamore franchisees and David R. Edgerton, who renamed the company Burger King. The duo led the company as an independent for eight years, possibly extending to over 250 locations in the United States, when they sold to Pillsbury in 1967.
According to Pillsbury, the company has undergone several attempts at reorganization or restructuring in the 1970s and early 1980s. Although these efforts have been effective in the short term, many of them were finally rejected resulting from Burger King to fall into a financial mess that damaged the financial performance of the two Burger King and its parent. operational performance and leadership inefficient poor has continued to bog down the company for many years even after he was acquired in 1989 by Alcoholic British conglomerate Grand Metropolitan and Diageo his successor. Finally, the institutional neglect of the brand by the company Diageo damaged to the point where major franchises have been driven from the business and its total value was significantly decreased. Diageo has finally decided to divest money loses the chain and put the company for sale in 2000.
In 2002, a troika of private equity firms led by TPG Capital, LP associated with Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners agreed to purchase BK from Diageo for $ 1.5 billion (USD), with the sale to be completed in December this year. The new owners, through several new leaders, have since moved to revitalize and reorganize the company, the first important step was again the name of BK parent as Burger King Brands. The investment group initially planned to take BK public within two years acquisition, but this action was delayed until 2006 for several reasons. On 1 February 2006, it was announced that TPG provided take Burger King public by issuing an initial public offering (IPO). Between March 2004 and March 2009, the company has twenty consecutive profitable quarters, which have been credited with revitalizing the success of the company, but with the slowdown during the financial crisis of 2007-2010 activities of the company has declined while its immediate competition, McDonald's, has increased.
Main article: Burger King franchises
When Burger King Corporation began franchising in 1959, it relied on a regional model franchise, where franchisees to obtain the right to open stores in a defined geographic area. These franchise agreements granted very little control BKC control over its franchisees and has led to questions of control of product quality, store image and design and procedures operations.
This model remained in place until 1978 when the company hired McDonald's Executive Donald N. Smith help reorganize the company. Smith has launched a restructuring of all future franchise agreements, the new owners refuse to live more than a hours of their restaurants, which prevents companies from owning franchises and franchisees operating ban other channels. This new policy effectively limited the size of the franchise and prevented major challenge franchises Burger King Corporation Chart House had. Smith also BKC sought to be the principal owner of new places and rent the restaurant for its franchisees. This policy would allow the company to take support store operations and failing to expel the owners who do not conform to corporate guidelines and policies. However, in 1988, Pillsbury's parent BKC had released a lot of changes in Smith, brought the construction of new places and slowing growth. Negligence Burger King by Grand Met the new owner Diageo and its successor, still not the reputation of the mark, causing more financial damage to the BK franchises.
In 2001 and for nearly eighteen stagnant growth, many of its franchises were in some sort of financial distress. The lack of growth severely impacted BKC greater openness, the AmeriKing nearly 400 stores by 2001 the company, which until that point had been crushed by nearly 300 million debt load and to delete items stores across the United States, was forced to enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The failure of AmeriKing profoundly affected the value of the BKC, and put the negotiations between the TPC and Diaego equity group lead by waiting. Developments Diaego finally forced to lower the total selling price of PKC by almost three quarters of a billion dollars. After the sale, newly appointed CEO Bradley Blum has launched a program to help the estimated 20% of its franchises, including its top four, who were in financial distress, bankruptcy or ceased activity. In partnership with the California-based Trinity Capital, LLC, the company created the franchisee financial restructuring initiative, a program to solve the financial problems the franchisees in financial difficulty BK. The initiative was designed to help franchisees in restructuring their businesses to meet financial obligations, the focus on restaurant operational excellence, reinvest in their activities and return to profitability.
Each owner has also benefited from the failure AmeriKing, one of the owners Regional BK, Miami-based Al Cabrera bought 130 stores located primarily in the Chicago area and upper Midwest, the company failed for a market basement price of $ 16 million, or about 88% of their original value. The new company, which began as Core Value Partners, and eventually became Heartland Foods, have also purchased 120 additional stores with owners in distress and completely reorganized them. Purchases made resulting from Mr. Cabrerra BKB largest minority franchisee and the heart of one of the top franchises BKH. In 2006, the company has been estimated at more than $ 150 million and was sold to new partners Yorkased GSO Capital. Other buyers included a group of three routes of NFL athletes Kevin Faulk, Marcus Allen and Michael Strahan, who collectively bought 17 stores in the cities of Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia, and Dave Devoy of Cincinnati franchise, which has bought 32 stores AmeriKing.

The Whopper sandwich, product Signature Burger King
When the company started, the menu consisted predominantly of hamburgers, French fries, soft drinks and desserts. In 1957, BK added its signature item, the Whopper. The quarter pound burger was created by the founders of Burger King James McLamore and David Edgerton as a way differentiate the outlets from other BK Burger at the time. The sandwich became famous enough that BK has finally adopted the motto "Home the Whopper. "
One of Donald N. Smith 's first changes in the menu was the addition of Burger King Specialty sandwich line in 1979, which has considerably expanded the scope of the BK menu with non-hamburger sandwiches including many chicken tenders and new fish. The new specialty line sandwich was one of the first attempts to target a specific demographic, in this case, adults 18-34, whose members would be willing to spend more for a better quality product. One of Smith's other major contribution to the menu has been adding a line of products breakfast, which until now was not a Burger King contract was entered. Besides the addition of Croissan'Wich in 1983 The breakfast menu was almost identical to the offer from McDonald's until a menu recast in 1985. This expansion has presented BK product line Am Express has added new products such as French toast sticks and mini-muffins.
As the company expanded within and outside the United States, it introduced localized versions of its products that conform to regional tastes and cultural or religious. changes International add ingredients such as teriyaki or beetroot and fried egg to Whopper, beer in Germany, Italy and Spain, and halal or kosher products in the Middle East and Israel. To generate additional sales, BK will occasionally introduce limited time offers (LTO) which are versions of its core products or new products for long-or short-term sales. Items such as the Texas Double Whopper and various sandwiches made with mushrooms and Swiss cheese were rotated in and out of its menu for several years while products like the 1993 offering of meat loaf sandwich and catering to limited with special meal trays, failed to generate interest and have been abandoned.
A meal including small French fries, a Whopper, Jr., a glass, and packets of Heinz ketchup
In order to appeal to as many demographic groups as possible and to better compete with its competitors fast food Wendy's, Burger King has added a menu with several levels of value in 1993 with articles Price 99, $ 1.99 and $ 2.99 (USD). The project, called Operation Phoenix, was an attempt not only to add a menu of value, but a line of food value. The menu at several levels has been replaced by a more standard menu of value in 1998, while the value of the meals were separated into their Segment own menu. This value menu featured seven products: Whopper Jr., 5 piece chicken fillets, a cheeseburger with bacon, medium enterprises French fries, soft drinks medium, medium onion rings and small shake. In 2002 and 2006, BK has revamped its menu and added value to the deletion of several different products such as chili and Rodeo Cheeseburger.
