Burger King's return to Paris could not have been better timing after a recent study revealed that sales of fast food had overtaken those of traditional sit-down restaurant dishes for the first time.

Ha ha! Soon the French will not longer be able to point and laugh at fat Americans, at least without wheezing a little bit. Get out the vinegar and mayonnaise for your Freedom Fries!

First the Japanese complaining about loan words, now the French will do their annual "America is killing our culture" rant. Somehow Snowden will get Russia on the ground in Syria and the Italians will send special forces to grab Amanda Knox. This business will get out if control.

Actually, the new Bacon Habanero Ranch Royale with cheese isn't half-bad, though no where near spicy enough to have 'habanero' in its name.

In Australia Burger King is known as Hungry Jack's. It's very confusing.

I would like one Le Whopper, comme il vous plaira

Would you like cheese on that

Oui

And le Here Fries. Would you like cheese on that?

But of course.

And le Pepsi le Cola. Cheese on that as well?

Oui.

The McDonald's in France is way better than the McDonald's in the United States. McDonald's realized that they needed to conform to French society a decade ago and they're reaping the benefits of that investment along with a stronger euro.

If Burger King has not studied trends in French eating at fast food places, they will close their stores in France within five years from opening. Burger King attempted once to expand into France in 1980 and left 17 years later. Eating fast food in France is different from the rest of Europe due in part to their culture and heritage. Their main competitors in France are McDonald's and Quick.

After eating at a couple of tourist restaurants in Paris, a Whopper With Cheese would taste mighty good.

/ate at a BK on the Champs Elysses in the 80s.

Funk Brothers: The McDonald's in France is way better than the McDonald's in the United States.



Tasted exactly the same to me. Except they serve espresso and not coffee (and beer).


FTFA: According the Le Figaro's sources

I call BS. Until there is a corporate press release or an actual resto, I don't believe it. There are always rumors of a BK opening in France.
 
2013-06-28 12:09:26 PM  
Man, isn't that sad?  Isn't a big part of (a tourist's perspective of) visiting a place such as France the appeal of sitting at a streetside cafe and taking in the atmosphere?
In the very least, I hope their Burger King goes back to using the microphone again.  I enjoy hearing my order repeated back to the fry-o-laters on a loud speaker.

I went there and I was like "WTF?? This is Burger King's logo. How can they legally steal it???"

Then I got home and did some research.....

When Burger King moved to expand its operations into Australia, it found that its business name was already trademarked by a takeaway food shop in Adelaide. As a result, Burger King provided the Australian franchisee, Jack Cowin, with a list of possible alternative names derived from pre-existing trademarks already registered by Burger King and its then corporate parent Pillsbury that could be used to name the Australian restaurants. Cowin selected the "Hungry Jack" brand name, one of Pillsbury's US pancake mixture products, and slightly changed the name to a possessive form by adding an apostrophe 's' forming the new name Hungry Jack's.

Yeah, I'm sure him choosing that name had nothing to do with his name being Jack.

Heh, I actually got on a bit of a "Mayo with my Fries" kick while I was working at the Vortex.  People laugh, but it's much better tasting than ketchup.
