The Burger King Asia-Pacific network has reached a milestone, the 3000th restaurant which just opened in Shanghai.
The new restaurant in China is a joint venture owned by Burger King, TFI TAB Food Investments and Cartesian Capital.
“We have served the Asia-Pacific market for more than 40 years, and have grown rapidly in the region recently, doubling our restaurant count in just the past five years,” said Sami Siddiqui, president at Burger King Asia-Pacific. “We look forward to many more openings to come as we grow the brand in our fastest-growing region of the world.”
Burger King has opened more than 1500 restaurants in the region within the last five years, helped by strong franchisee partnerships in major markets, including China, India and South Korea.
