Burger King was founded in 1954 in Miami, Fl. by James McLamore and David Edgerton. Their infamous ‘Whopper’ recipe brought them a lot of consumer attention and soon this small establishment grew to a chain. This company continued to grow steadily over the years and broke into many new worldwide markets in the 1980’s. Today Burger King serves over 11 million people across the globe in over 13,000 restaurants. The stability of growth, strong name recognition, and multiple franchises makes this an attractive company for many job seekers.
