A NEW Burger King drive-thru restaurant is officially open in Kidderminster, creating 35 jobs.

The fast food giant opened its doors to customers in Foley Business Park for the first time today (Friday, December 6).

The launch means that burger lovers will no longer need to travel to Redditch or Birmingham for their nearest branch.

Kidderminster's drive-thru is serving Burger King's range of flame grilled burgers, chicken, snack options including chilli cheese bites and sweet treats like the Oreo milkshake - as well as a selection of breakfasts, such as the coffee and butty deal for £1.99.

The new branch will showcase Burger King's updated, modern restaurant design roll-out, using natural materials with a bold colour palette and American prints.

Its open hours are 7am to 11pm Monday to Thursday, 7am to 12am Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 10pm on Sundays.

Salim Janmohamed, managing director of Karali, said: "We know the people of Kidderminster love the great-tasting food of Burger King, so we’ve listened to their requests and are very excited to bring all their favourites to their neighbourhood. Our home – of the Whopper! – is their home.”
