Burger King Sign Goes Viral, Staff Walks Out

 

Disgruntled Burger King employees in Lincoln, Nebraska put up a sign on their marquee “we all quit” and “sorry for the inconvenience,” to send a message to upper management.

“They wanted to put up a sign to say, you know sorry there’s really not going to be anyone here,” former general manager Rachael Flores told a local ABC affiliate when interviewed.  “Just kind of a laugh to upper management.  That got put up yesterday before we opened, and I didn’t think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook.  I got a call from my upper management, and they told me I needed to take it down.”

Flores and several other workers had already put in their two weeks’ notice that they would be leaving their posts, according to the report.

The workers interviewed for the story stated that they had been working in a kitchen with no air conditioning for weeks, where temperatures sometimes got above 90 degrees.

The workers also contended that they would frequently work through lunch and worked longer hours to combat staffing issues.

Restaurants Brands International owns three prominent QSR brands, Burger King, Tim Hortons, and Popeyes.  Unfortunately, these establishments and industries don’t offer the luxury of working from home and have had staffing issues throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mouldy Whopper at Burger King

Mouldy Whopper at Burger King causes an uproar.
Yesterday Burger King released a time-lapse video to highlight its recent changes.  This video contains a shot of its flagship Whopper being made and then left to decompose.  The time-lapse clip shows mould growing on the burger over a period of 34 days.

The marketing campaign aims to highlight the brand’s move away from preservatives and artificial ingredients.  Burger King has followed this trend and have now removed preservatives from food sold in their European and select US markets.

Fernando Machado, Restaurant Brands Global Chief Marketing Officer said in the press release, “At Burger King we believe that real food tastes better, that’s why we are working hard to remove preservatives, colours, and flavours from artificial sources from the food we serve in all countries around the world.
The brand ensures customers that they can’t buy a Mouldy Whopper at Burger King.

This move reflects a trend in the food industry’s increased focus on sustainability, environmentalism, and transparent production.  Burger King used this trend because it loves to snub or poke fun at the market leader, who is well known for the public doing stunts where their burgers don’t deteriorate over months and even years!

You will recall that Burger King likes to remain edgy and poke fun at their competitor McDonalds whenever they get the chance – Last time out they were burning their competitor’s ads with their app promotion
