IMPOSSIBLE WHOPPER BOOSTS BURGER KING
The Impossible Whopper propelled Burger King to its best third-quarter comparable sales increase in four years. Restaurant Brands International reported a 5% increase in same-store sales at Burger King locations in the U.S. during the quarter, crediting the launch of the Impossible Whopper. The company said that Popeye’s had comparable sales growth of more than 10% in the U.S. The chain offered a limited-time chicken sandwich this summer, and it will be back Sunday.
