Burger King just showed off its new restaurants designed for ‘COVID world’
Burger King just unveiled new plans for a dramatic redesign of its restaurants, and drive-thru and pickup options are king.
Renderings of the new design, which were released on Thursday, show a modern Burger King that shrinks the dining room and elevates the kitchen to create more drivable space. The physical footprint of the store is 60% smaller than a traditional Burger King building, according to a company press release.
The design is optimized for what Burger King calls “COVID world,” with pickup cubbies where customers can grab a burger and fries without employee contact. The store will also feature curbside delivery spots where customers can place orders through a mobile app.
