The UK arm of Burger King tweeted: "We know, we never thought we’d be saying this either."


The outlet asked its customers to support local fast food outlets during the second major COVID-19 lockdown imposed in the country to restrict the spread of the deadly virus.

It added that UK restaurants employing thousands of staff need support of customers during these testing times: "So, if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, takeaway or drive thru."
