Burger King has tweeted to ask its customers to consider ‘buying a Big Mac’ to save the fast-food sector.
As from Thursday, fast-food outlets and other restaurants will be forced to close their doors as England braces itself for a second lockdown.
The lockdown is expected to last at least four weeks as the government tries to prevent Intensive Care Units becoming overwhelmed with COIVD patients.
In a tweet published earlier today, @BurgerKingUK tweeted:
“We never thought we’d be asking you to do this.
“Just like we never thought we’d be encouraging you to order from KFC, Subway, Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, Five Guys, Greggs, Taco Bell, Papa John’s, Leon…or any of the other independent food outlets, too numerous to mention here.
“In short, from any of our sister food chains (fast or not so fast).
“We never thought that we’d be asking you to do this, but restaurants employing thousands of staff really need your support at the moment.
“So, if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, takeaway, or drive thru.
“Getting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing”.
So far, the tweet has been retweeted nearly 10k times and has attracted almost 40k ‘likes.’
