"BK ® Delivers is already performing well in New York, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco Bay Area, Vegas, Sacramento, greater Washington, D.C., Phoenix and Denver.  As its popularity has grown, we have seen an increasing demand for the program in other markets," says Petru Pusta, Director, Retail Innovation, Burger King Worldwide, Inc.  "This expansion was an easy decision as Boston has some of our most loyal guests and the BURGER KING® brand is excited to offer them the opportunity to enjoy the food they love, delivered to them in the comfort of their home, dorm or office."

BURGER KING® brand plans to open two more BK® Delivers sites in the Boston area within the next 2-3 weeks and two more this summer.

There are a wide variety of markets in which guests and franchisees have shown tremendous interest in receiving BK ® Delivers.  The company is looking to expand and would like its guests to have input on its direction.  For those guests who don't live in the Boston area, that would like to know when BK® Delivers comes to them, please visit BKDelivers.com  and log your zip code to let the BURGER KING ® brand know where you live; then simply add your email address to get alerts once BK ® Delivers arrives in your area.
