TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - BURGER KING® Canada is announcing the launch of the new BIG KING™ sandwich across Canada. The new beefed up burger is made with a quarter pound of 100 per cent beef, fire-grilled to perfection. The BIG KING™ features two savory beef patties, freshly cut lettuce, crisp onions and a tangy sauce, all on a three-layer warm, toasted sesame seed bun.
The BIG KING™ sandwich made industry news when it launched in the U.S. in February to rave reviews. It is now available in Canada as part of the NEW BIG KING™ $5 Meal Deal or $3.99 for a single sandwich.
"The BIG KING™ is truly big in every way - bigger flavor, bigger taste," said Tracy Chin-Sam, Associate Marketing Director, BURGER KING® Canada. "The only thing that's small about it is the price."
The new fire-grilled double-patty sandwich is the first member of the BIG KING™ Collection, a new menu lineup being rolled out across Canada over the coming months. Also launching is the Chicken BIG KING™, made with two crispy chicken patties, fresh lettuce, pickles, onions and a tangy sauce between a warm toasted three-layer bun.
The BIG KING™ Collection also coincides with the introduction of two new menu choices, the BBQ Bacon WHOPPER® and the new BURGER KING® Buffalo Chicken Strips.
