“Burger King, the American fast food restaurant is coming to Nigeria first or early second quarter of the year” says a reliable source.
According to our source, the global food giant has entered into a deal with a soon to be revealed Nigerian company who are the official franchise owners.
This is in line with the company’s African expansion plans given the rising growth of the continents middle class which has witnessed a growing demand for global food chains, supermarkets and retail giants with many making their entry into the country.
This follows the announcement by Walmart of the company’s plans to come into Nigeria beginning with Lagos. The retail giant disclosed this following a meeting with the Governor of Lagos state, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode in 2015.
Currently, Burger King has stores in South Africa, Morocco and Egypt. The company announced its plans to enter six other African countries before the end of 2016 and we can confirm that an outlet is set to be established in Nigeria soon.
