In 1954, James McLamore and David Edgerton opened their first BURGER KING restaurant in Miami Florida. They introduced their signature Original WHOPPER Sandwich in 1957. It was an instant sensation and immediately became our flagship product. Today the WHOPPER sandwich is world renowned for its fire-grilled taste and the many ways customers can order it to their liking.
