Burger King Worldwide this week announced that its first international burger restaurant in Timor-Leste is now open at Timor Plaza. Fast Food Timor Lda, owned by Dili-based hospitality entrepreneur Sakib Awan, became the first Burger King franchisee to bring the brand to the country.

"We are very excited to bring the Burger King brand and the world-famous Whopper sandwich to Timor-Leste, said Elias Diaz Sese, president of BK Asiapac Pte. Ltd., the franchisor for Burger King in the Asia Pacific region. "We have the right partner in Sakib Awan to drive our business and bring our world-class food to our fans in Timor-Leste."

Awan runs a Gloria Jean's Coffees outlet at the shopping center.

"It's a milestone for Timor-Leste, and the Timor Plaza is an ideal location to attract customers to the Burger King restaurant," Sakib Awan said in the release. "Personally, I've always liked the brand and its menu, and I feel it's a really good fit for the Timorese market.
