The next time Morristown residents want to satisfy a Whopper craving, they may notice a few changes at the Burger King on Morris Boulevard.
During the past several weeks, the building has undergone a nearly complete overhaul. A BK spokesperson said the renovations being conducted inside the building updated the original location with distinctive graphics and offer a variety of self-seating options.
“This new restaurant design exemplifies the brand’s commitment to delivering superior products and providing a positive guest experience in a comfortable and inviting dining environment,” the spokesperson said.
Mary Howe, manager at the Morristown BK, said everything, including walls, ceilings, tables and fixtures have been replaced throughout the lobby and restrooms.
“There are still a few odds and ends they have to complete but the renovations are pretty much done,” Howe said.
The restaurant’s drive-thru remained open throughout the renovations. The renovations included a remodeled modernized design of the outside structure. The old playground area is also gone, making way for more seating.
Founded in 1954, Burger King is the second largest fast food hamburger chain in the world. The original “Home of the Whopper,” Burger King has more than 12,600 locations serving more than 11–million guests daily worldwide.
