Less than a month after extending its home delivery service to select Florida markets, Burger King has announced that it will also now be delivering to the Houston market.
With as many as nine participating restaurants by end of year in the Houston metropolitan area, serving both Harris and Fort Bend counties, guests can now order signature Burger King items and have them delivered to their location.
BK Delivers allows guests to order their food by visiting BKDelivers.com or calling toll-free at 1-855-ORDER-BK (1-855-673-7325) to place an order for delivery from a participating BK restaurant that is located within the delivery radius.
The proprietary thermal packaging technology helps to ensure that customers receive their food hot. BK Delivers is also available in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, as well as internationally in Turkey, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Brazil.
"We are thrilled to expand the BK Delivers test to Texas' largest city," said Alex Macedo, senior vice president and general manager of U.S. franchise business for Burger King Worldwide. "Our goal has always been to provide excellent service and great tasting food to our guests. After seeing the success this program has experienced with residents in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, we are excited to bring this convenience to Houston."
With a minimum order of $10, guests can choose from a variety of menu items, including the brand's signature Whopper sandwich. Orders in the Houston area can be placed during delivery operating hours of 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. BK Delivers currently does not include fountain drinks, ICEE beverages, shakes, soft serve desserts, coffee or breakfast items. However, real fruit smoothies, bottled soft drinks and water are available for purchase.
