“Since 1954, Burger King has prided itself on two things – flame-grilling and letting Guests ‘Have It Your Way’. And, while a lot has changed over the last 70 years, we’ve always remained committed to our Guests, including the past few years as we have been reclaiming our flame with initiatives such as remodeling and modernizing our restaurants, investing in state-of-the-art technology, menu innovations and more,” said Pat O’Toole, Chief Marketing Officer, Burger King North America. “As we look to celebrate our milestone birthday this June, we are proud of the legacy this brand has built and on which we stand, and are beyond grateful for our royal Guests who have made it all possible.”
