Burger King Corporation is a restaurant company that is known for flame-grilled hamburgers. It was started in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton in Miami, Florida. However, in 1959, the two founders sold their first franchise and Burger King has since grown to an incredible 14,000 stores in over 100 countries.
The company has gone through several ownerships trying to keep up with McDonalds until it merged with Tom Hortons, a donut and fast food chain in 2014.
Their signature product is the Whopper which is a huge hamburger with flame grilled burger, salad and sauces.

How to apply for a job at Burger King
There are two ways to apply for a job at Burger King. One, you can download an application form online,
fill it in and send it back to the branch you are applying for. Alternatively and this is the best way, you can go pick an application form from the outlet, fill it honestly and return it to the manager. You can also include your resume though it’s not mandatory just to show you are professional.
In your resume, let your contact details be on top. You should also highlight your relevant experience if you
have any. In case you have never worked in a restaurant before, let your customer service and desire to work in a restaurant shine in your resume.

with and able to multi-task because sometimes the outlet is very busy. Being friendly and respectful to customers is non-negotiable.
