Burger King returns to Japan on June 8th June 2, 2007

Posted by fukumimi in Food and Drink, Japan.

Burger King returns to Japan this Friday, with the first store opening in Nishi-Shinjuku. (previous mention about the return of Burger King here)

The Burger King is located within the Shinjuku Island Tower building, taking over the premises of a Lotteria burger joint (the BK franchise is being developed by Lotte which owns the Lotteria chain).

Interesting to note, the Island Tower is home to McDonalds Japan’s head offices.

The second store opens in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine Building complex on June 22nd, and Lotte and Revamp plan to have 50 Burger Kings in Japan within 3 years.

The Japan only  “teriyaki whopper” will be making a reappearance.

Personally I look forward to the fries and onion rings at BK which are better than at their competitors.

I’m sure no one will begrudge me a trip to a fast food burger joint once in a while. Once I’ve come off my diet anyway….

50 outlets in three years? I don’t know why but companies always claim that they will open many more outlets in Japan than they actualy do.

I don’t know what it is about Burger King, but it has spawned one of the longest discussion threads I’ve ever seen on Asoboo.

I wonder how long it would take to get a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts and a whopper in Shinjuku on a Sunday, and how many calories one would burn while standing in line…
