Someone once told me that Burger King originated in the UK.

I realize that is highly unlikely. But rather than google I thought I’d post a thread about it.

So did it?

Try not to laugh.

Apparently not.

According to the Official Burger King History, the first one was in Miami.

Thought so. Thanks.

They may have thought so because BK used to be owned by Diageo PLC.

Burger King had been owned by Pillsbury until the Dough Boy’s [purchase by Britain’s Grand Metropolitan Ltd.]( bk_corporation/fact_sheets/corp_bg.aspx) in 1988. Grand Met and Guinness merged in 1997 to form Diageo, which sold BK in 2002.
