The second-biggest burger chain in the world entered the South African market in 2013.

In 1954, James W. McLamore and David Edgerton bought a Jacksonville-based franchise called Insta-Burger King that had been created by Keith Kramer and Matthew Burn. The fast food store was renamed Burger King. By 1959, the founders sold their first franchise and were getting ready to expand their brand outside the USA by opening their first store in Puerto Rico. Burger King’s Whopper Burger became a signature product and the company’s popularity grew. In 1967, the business was bought by the Pillsbury Company for $18-million, and fuelled the company’s expansion across North America. Under the leadership of Donald N. Smith, a former McDonald’s executive, Burger King’s range expanded to include a fish sandwich and fried chicken, positioning the company as a competitor to other non-burger chains. Smith was also instrumental in the creation of the Burger King, the Wizard of Fries, and Sir Shake A Lot – characters that were a challenge to McDonald’s Ronald McDonald. The 1980s and 1990s saw a period of instability for Burger King and its ownership changed hands numerous times. It was most recently acquired by 3G Capital, which has revamped the company’s menu, remodeled existing stores and plans to open a further 2,500 new stores across the globe.

Burger King partnered with Grand Parade Investments and entered the South African market. Its first store opened in Cape Town in 2013 and, the following year established a meat processing plant under a joint venture with Western Cape-based Excellent Meat. There are now more than 80 Burger King outlets countrywide

Burger King has about 14,00 outlets in more than 100 countries worldwide
