BURGER loving readers have been suggesting where they would like to see a new Burger King should it come to Worcester.

Yesterday, we reported that the Big Whopper may be coming to our faithful city after a job advert for the fast food chain was posted on Indeed.com.

The posting on the job site was for a managerial position at Burger King in Worcester.

The news was welcomed by Worcester residents following a long running campaign to get the King back in the city.

Jayne Elizabeth Maggs commented: “This is great news and well done the Burger King Warriors we have waited so long!”

Back in 2019 a Facebook page called ‘People of Worcester want a Burger King’ was set up by Craig Smith and Barry Bozward to campaign for the burger joint to come to the city.

Mr Bozward said at the time: “This is most definitely a serious campaign to bring the king back to Worcester, they’re obviously in the market for new branches.”

The pair even got the support of MP Robin Walker who wrote to the Chief Executive of Burger King to highlight the Facebook group.

Speaking to the Worcester News, Mr Walker said while he was not part of the campaign, he was happy to “highlight” the group, adding: “I’m always interested in getting business investment in the city.”

Asked what his favourite menu choice is, he said: “I have not had a Burger King for a while now, but I have to say I’m quite partial to a Bacon Double Cheeseburger.”

Over 10 years ago city resident Benny Hill campaigned for a KFC, also through Facebook, and it worked, with a branch opening in January 2009.

But, if a new branch were to come to Worcester. Where would it go?

Leeann Browning said: “There are so many empty places in the town centre. So anyone of those would be perfect. I love Burger King so I can’t wait.”

Susan Whitehouse suggested The old Perdiswell Pub where McDonald’s was ruled out.

Greg Downer said: “Why don’t they use the old Pizza Hut shop by Wickes?”

But, not everyone was as thrilled with the news.

Mark Wallace said: “We need something completely different like Taco Bell or Dunkin Donuts. There must be 20 different burger places in Worcester.”
