BURGER King has announced it will re-open further restaurants across Greater Manchester as part of its phased re-opening plan.

The popular fast-food chain will throw open the doors to its restaurant at The Rock in Bury today.

It will be open for dine-in, takeaway and home delivery. Customers will be able to place orders via Deliveroo / JustEat.

Although 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.

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.

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.”

Burger King UK have also announced super-money saving deals, which, combined with the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, will mean dine in customers will enjoy BK favourites at their lowest ever price.

The in-app offers – available Monday to Friday – will run in two phases, with the first deals available from the August 3 to 14, and the second phase from August 17 to 31.
