Burger King to open in Brussels pedestrian zone
Burger Brands Belgium, which manages local outlets of fast food chain Burger King, has announced that an outlet will open in Brussels’ pedestrian zone sometime next year. CEO Kevin Derycke was not clear as to exactly when or where, though the newspaper Le Dernière Heure reports that it will be in Boulevard Anspach.
Derycke did confirm that another outlet of the popular fast food chain would open at Brussels Airport next year. Brussels’ first Burger King opened on Boulevard du Souverain in Auderghem last month. That brought the total number of Burger Kings in Belgium to three, following openings in Antwerp and Charleroi a few months ago.
Burger Brands Belgium also controls the Quick fast food chain and announced last year that it would slowly convert all Quick outlets to Burger King. Employees working in Quick restaurants will be retained in the new Burger Kings, Derycke said.
