Growth of Burger King

Even though Burger King has reduced its number of company-operated restaurants, the overall number of locations has steadily increased since 2009. The worldwide expansion of the Florida-based company has contributed to it being amongst the most valuable quick service brands in the world with a brand value of over seven million U.S. dollars in 2019. In accordance with growing numbers of locations, the revenue of Burger King has also seen growth in the past 4 years, after gradually diminishing in the years before that. In 2019, the quick service restaurant chain generated approximately 1.78 billion U.S. dollars in revenue.

Despite the increase in locations and fluctuations in revenue, Burger King’s score on the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) remains steady. The restaurant chain scored 76 points out of a possible 100 points in 2019, in overall customer satisfaction. Comparatively, competitor McDonald’s only scored 69 points in the same period.
