Burger King launches first dark kitchen

The new site is understood to have the potential to reach around 400,000 customers.

Burger King has launched its first dark kitchen as the industry continues to see trading bolstered by delivery.

The fast food chain said it is trialling its first delivery-only site in Kentish Town, north London.

Burger King is working in partnership with FoodStars, the delivery kitchen business backed by former Uber boss Travis Kalanick, to launch the expansion.

The new kitchen is understood to have the potential to reach around 400,000 customers.

“We know consumers have found food delivery services to be a real help during these challenging times, and that takeaways have offered some much-needed joy up and down the country,” Alasdair Murdoch, chief executive of Burger King UK, said.

“The opening of the first delivery-only Burger King kitchen marks an expansion of this valued service, which we believe will drive growth.”
