Traffic is bad in many parts of the world, especially in one of the most congested city in the world: Mexico City. On average, people there apparently gain an additional 59 minutes of travel time a day, which adds up to an extra 227 hours per year. So, Burger King naturally decided that this is the next demographic to target. The hamburger chain recently introduced the “Traffic Jam Whopper,” a delivery platform that brings Burger King food to people stuck in traffic, reports AdAge. Basically, peckish people sitting in their cars while Mexico City traffic crawls along can use the Burger King app to order food and have it delivered right to their car via a courier. The platform, according to AdAge: ...uses real-time traffic data to determined heavily congested areas, and Waze banner ads and digital billboards then alert drivers when the delivery service is available to them. The ads remind the drivers how much time they have left to order through the Burger King … [Read more...] about Burger King Figured Out How to Monetize Traffic Jams

Associated Press Published 12:26 PM EDT Apr 29, 2019 Toronto – Burger King could soon be selling plant-based burgers nationwide. Restaurant Brands International, Burger King’s parent, said Monday that a month-long test of the Impossible Whopper at 59 restaurants in St. Louis has gone so well that it will start testing it in additional markets.

Burger King is the first fast food chain to test the Impossible burger, but other chains are offering plant-based burgers from competitors like Beyond Meat.

Daniel Neman St. Louis Post-Dispatch Published 2:50 PM EDT Apr 25, 2019 St. Louis — Trying Burger King’s new Impossible Whopper requires a certain intellectual disconnect. You know you’re eating something made from plants, but it tastes distinctly “burgerish.” You think you’re eating something healthful, but you’re actually consuming 630 calories, only 30 fewer than a regular Whopper (though the low cholesterol and zero trans fats does count on the healthy side). You think you’re eating cheap fast food, and you are, but the Impossible Whopper still costs a dollar more than a regular Whopper. The St. Louis area, with 59 Burger King locations, has been chosen as the sole test market for the Impossible Whopper. We’re the middle of Middle America, and if something that is “hamburgery” without being an actual hamburger can sell here, then it can sell anywhere. Apparently, it is selling well.
