Burger King has today announced it will re-open three restaurants in Yorkshire, as part of its phased re-opening plan.

The locations of the restaurants that re-opened yesterday, include Hull Beacon Way, York Clifton Moor RP and Stockton Chandlers Wharf RP.

Restaurants will be open for delivery and Drive Thru only from 12 – 11pm.

Customers will be able to place their orders via Deliveroo, Just Eat or the Drive Thru.

The opening is part of Burger King’s phased re-opening plan with 40 restaurants set to re-open per week from the week commencing May 25 onwards.

By the end of June, Burger King are working towards re-opening 350 restaurants (68 per cent of their restaurants).

To enable restaurants to continue to re-open a number of procedures have been put in place to safeguard the health of both Burger King employees and customers, following detailed operational testing.

These include additional PPE such as masks and gloves for staff, stringent cleaning measures, contactless delivery options via Deliveroo and Just Eat and all Burger King staff comprehensively trained on the Government’s social distancing measures – including how to run kitchens hygienically, whilst abiding by them.

Although the delivery-only service will mean customers won’t be able to access the full Burger King menu, Burger King favourites such as the Chicken Royale, Bacon Double Cheeseburger and Whopper will all be available to order.

Katie Evans, Marketing Director at Burger King UK, said: “We are so pleased to be able to open more restaurants this week and slowly but surely get back to ‘normal’, ensuring all safety measures are in place.”
