Hot off of Taco Bell’s decision to become more mobile and to-go friendly, another fast-food chain is adapting some of its restaurant styles. Burger King’s new restaurant designs will be fitted for more pick-ups, mobile orders, and enhanced drive-thrus experiences.
Burger King’s new designs will feature triple drive-thru lanes with one dedicated specifically to delivery drivers. Customers will also be able to do curbside pickup and orders. Designated parking spaces will be incorporated into the designs, and customers will be able to park, order using the mobile app, and have their orders brought to their car.
Walk-up windows will also be available for ordering and pick-up, and code-locked lockers will be available for pick-up as well. In fact, some of the potential options for redesign have no indoor seating or ordering options at all.
Josh Kobza, Restaurant Brands International Chief Operating Officer, explains the designs in a press release stating, “We took into consideration how consumer behaviors are changing and our guests will want to interact with our restaurants. The result is a new design concept that is attractive to guests and will allow our franchisees to maximize their return.”
The first of the new designs will launch in 2021 in Miami as well as Latin America and the Caribbean.
