BURGER KING® Introduces Regionally Inspired Summer BBQ Menu

MIAMI, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BURGER KING® is firing up the grill and celebrating the season with the return of its delicious summer BBQ menu. Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: BKW) today unveiled a line-up of thirteen mouth-watering menu items, featuring a combination of both new flavors and the return of a few fan favorites. The summer menu is inspired by the places and flavors that have made BBQ a way of life – like tangy Carolina BBQ, and the hickory smoked flavors of Memphis BBQ. 

"Our BURGER KING® family loves the outdoor grilling season," said Flavia Faugeres, executive vice president and global chief marketing officer, Burger King Worldwide, Inc. "Seeing the success we had with our initial BBQ menu last year, we wanted to expand upon our regionally inspired offerings and provide our guests with Summer BBQ flavors fresh off the grill. Burger King's unique fire-grilling cooking technique allows for us to create these various BBQ items in the traditional way they are meant to be made – over a flame"
