Burger King To Fall To Third In Burger Wars

MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – It’s beginning to look like the King may not be strong enough to fight off a challenge from a pigtailed girl.

Miami-based Burger King has long been the number two fast food burger chain in the country, but change is on the horizon.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday morning that Wendy’s is expected to pass Burger King in U.S. sales, trailing on McDonald’s.

Once Wendy’s passes Burger King, it will be the first reordering of the industry’s big three since Wendy’s appeared on the scene in 1969, according to the Journal.

Wendy’s is expected to see a 1.1 percent gain in sales while Burger King is expected to see a 3.9 percent drop in sales, according to the Journal.

Wendy’s has a total of 5,883 stores in the U.S. compared with Burger King’s 7,264 and McDonald’s 14,027.

    I’ve noticed the service at McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s has improved I usually wait about 3 minutes for my food and my order is always correct when I get home. Good work people.

    Beaten by a clown and a pig tailed girl ? Last I went to BK, ordered their chicken tenders/nuggets, they gave me 1 tub of sauce and it wasn’t even the flavor I wanted. Service was lousy, they claimed to have no sauces for the chicken tenders/nuggets. Why would a fast food place run out of sauces ? That meal was $ 7 and change. The chicken tenders/nuggets weren’t even tasty. Maybe it was just that location that was horribly mis-managed ? Then again, they are constantly trying to fill jobs at their HQ, recycling jobs every other month, that probably won’t ever be filled. Anyway, of the 3, Wendy’s is the only real food out of the bunch, rather closest thing to real food. That other stuff is processed and has the same shelf/useful life as plutonium. Just horrible food.

    Let’s talk about the restaurant itself ? Nasty place, don’t wear nice dress clothes in there, the floor is greasy and slick, the odor smells like burnt & overused cooking oil. Suffice it to say, America is done with this kind of service. If they aren’t going to provide quality service, at least leave condiments & sauces so that we may be able to serve ourselves for being overcharged for nasty food.
