Burger King opened up last year in India and for the first time in history they came up with a beef-less menu!
Now, we hear they might be expanding their vegetarian fare globally. According to Economic Times India, the meatless options are expected to be well-received by countries with a larger vegetarian market, such as the United States and United Kingdom. Raj Varman, CEO of Burger King India, told the Press Trust of India that this is will fare well in those countries. “Looking at the response here, the global management is evaluating introducing some of these options going forward to other vegetarian-friendly markets like the U.K.,” Varman said.
Burger King India offers vegetarian Whoppers and burgers made with a crispy patty filled with potatoes, peas, and other vegetables; a paneer melt; a spicy bean burger made with kidney beans; and veggie strips that look like mozzarella sticks but are filled with corn, peas, and carrots.
We don’t have a date yet on when this expansion is set to take place. But for now, Burger King has expanded to the south of India with Bangalore’s outlet opening last week.
