The ad campaign in support of the BBQ-inspired menu gives Burger King the opportunity to debut its new tagline: Taste is King.

According to the company, the new tagline celebrates the heritage of the brand and future innovations coming out of the test kitchen.

"BBQs are synonymous with summer; we gather together with family and friends to eat great food, and now Burger King offers guests a chance to sit back and let us take over the grilling," said Alex Macedo, senior vice president, North America marketing, Burger King Corp. "'Taste is King at Burger King and the new BBQ-inspired menu offers something for everyone, from our loyal Whopper Sandwich fans to our more adventurous guests looking to try surprising new favorites."

Since October 2010, Burger King has rolled out a new breakfast menu, overhauled its french fries and its marketing message, added a dessert platform, expanded its target demographic, accelerated its modern 20/20 restaurant design and increased its international footprint.

Additionally, in April, Burger King rolled out its broadest menu expansion in its 58-year history. The new permanent menu includes Garden Fresh Salads, Chicken Snack Wraps, Real Fruit Smoothies, Frappés and Crispy Chicken Strips.
