Burger King Set To Re-Open in Costa Rica!

201606101523100.bkfotoQCOSTARICA – Following rumours that Burger King would be back in Costa Rica, it is now a reality. The U.S. hamburger restaurant chain is back.

The first restaurants (located in the San Jose area) will open next Tuesday, June 14.

“El secreto ya no es secreto” (the secret is no longer a secret) is the notice sent to the media on Friday.

In a preview of what is to come, the chain says all the restaurants will have the same design and menu and will operate with standards similar to the restaurants in the United States.

The closing of the franchise last year was mainly due to the previous operator’s falling behind on standards set by the parent, including lack of publicity and failing to renovate the brand during the last months of operation. Last October, the Burger King Corporation in the United States ordered the closure of the 29 BK brand restaurants in Costa Rica, leaving 434 people out of work.

Since, some of the old BK locations have been absorbed by other fast food franchises like KFC, Popeye’s and McDonalds. The La Sabana BK is now a car rental office.
