Burger King outlet opens in Warrens

Another Burger King outlet has opened in Barbados, with Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler suggesting that the expansion of the fast food restaurant was an indication that businesses were still willing to invest in the country.

The Dome Mall, Warrens location – the fifth for Burger King – officially opened its doors to the public today.

Sinckler, who cut the ribbon with reigning Pic-O-De-Crop Monarch Aziza Clarke to declare the outlet open, said it was “quite a pleasure for us here in Barbados . . . to have another international franchise on our soil but not only have it, but have it expanding”.

He said it spoke volumes for Barbados that, despite the economic challenges, international businesses continued to invest directly in the island while trusting local business people with their brands.

The Burger King franchise opened its first outlet in Sky Mall, Haggat Hall in January 2013.

Chairman of Williams Group Ralph Bizzy Williams, who has been the driving force behind the chain’s success, told Barbados TODAY: “I think the public recognizes quality and I’m very happy with the reaction.”

Calling Warrens the new centre for business activity, Williams noted that its growth was an appealing factor and while other fast food restaurants had been operating in the vicinity, he did not fear competition.

The new Burger King outlet has 54 employees and features a drive-thru. A children’s play park will be opened soon.

    More fast food, with unsaturated fats, too much salt, and the other unhealthy ingredients which will lead to this generation of young people dying before their parents’.
    We must teach young people to cook again and look after their health; this is a job for the minister of health, a national nutritionist and senior doctors.
    Barbados has one of the highest type two diabetes rates in the world, a direct result of poor lifestyles. There is a hefety cost for all this.

    Burger king–chefette, KFC ARE ALL HEALTH HAZARDS to our sons and daughters. What I find worrying is how the politicians can sit by and allow the agendas of these killers.Why can’t Barbados awake and see that FAST FOODS means Fast death.
