Burger King Will Close 26 Restaurants By Mid-April

After seeing lagging sales in recent years and being unseated by Wendy's as the second-largest burger chain in America,

things have been looking up for Burger King lately. Thanks to initiatives like a $400 million investment campaign aimed at enhancing

Burger King reported promising increases in same-store sales and customer satisfaction in the final quarter of 2022.

It also recently added several exciting items to the menu, including the returning Whopper Melts and brand-new Spicy Chicken Fries. 

A Burger King franchisee filed a notice last week that it plans to close 26 restaurants in Michigan by mid-April, eliminating 424 jobs as a result.

The notice from EYM King, which was sent to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity on March 22,

said that it began closing stores on March 17 and plans to finish the closures on or around April 15. 

Burger King was operating about 288 restaurants in Michigan as of March 13 this year, according to the data company ScrapeHero,

but the closures of EYM King's locations means that this number will likely be lower once April 15 passes.

Many of the closing restaurants are located in Detroit, unfortunately for Burger King fans in the area.
