Introducing the BURGER KING® Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger now on the 2 for $5 Menu
MIAMI – June 2, 2014 – Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: BKW) is stretching its summer menu with the introduction of the Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger. A harmony of fire-grilled and sweet BBQ flavor, the Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger features two 100% beef burger patties layered side by side on a toasted hoagie bun and topped with American cheese, onion rings and BBQ sauce.
“The new savory Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger is the perfect example of how you can order and eat your way at our restaurants,” said Eric Hirschhorn, Chief Marketing Officer, North America, Burger King Corporation. “Instead of stacking the patties, we’ve placed them side by side and topped them with two summer favorites, crispy onion rings and sweet BBQ sauce, for a sandwich that is a fun twist on a classic burger.”
The Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger is available now at participating BURGER KING® restaurants nationwide for a suggested price of $3.59.
