New York (CNN Business)

Burger King's future restaurants will be fit for the coronavirus age, with triple drive-thrus, burger pickup lockers, takeout counters and more. 

The burger chain unveiled two new restaurant designs with those features and others on Thursday. It plans to build some prototypes next year in Miami, Latin America and the Caribbean, and incorporate other elements into existing restaurants over time. 

"As we look into 2021, we'll be ramping up again on our new development around the world and doing a lot of remodels," said Josh Kobza, chief operating officer for Restaurant Brands International, which owns Burger King.

Some of the features highlighted in the prototype, like double drive-thru lanes, curbside pickup and digital menu boards, already exist. Others are brand new. 

In the new designs, customers will be able to drive into a designated spot, order through the app and have food delivered to their cars. They'll see triple drive-thru lanes, one dedicated for delivery drivers. If they arrive on foot, they'll be able to order outside through a walk-up window. The restaurants will also be smaller: One prototype has no indoor dining option at all. The other has a dining room and kitchen — with a conveyor belt for drive-thru orders — suspended over the lanes. 

Burger King has been working on new restaurant designs for a few years. But the pandemic has accelerated certain trends, like online ordering, and made to-go orders an even greater focus for fast-food restaurants.

Typical Fast Food That Cross’s The Line In The Board Room

The first problem I have with fast food is deciding.  You walk in and immediately are swamped by this stock market size board of combinations of the same basic food items and a mass of visual communication which most of the time makes no sense.  

And someone in front of you and someone behind you most likely is in the same mental state of affairs.  I came to eat, not to process signage and I forgot to bring my wee-gee board to assist in selection.

The second problem is the order taker.  I realize this job is not that attractive as a career move, and training leaves a lot to be desired.  But yesterday  I had to explain my simple order three times before she got it right, I think. I simply asked for a MEAL, plus one extra sandwich.  My girls cat could have done a better job, Abigail is a smart cat.  And smart enough to eat Blue only and no peoples food.

Too much handling of the food without gloves, too much ignorant chatter behind the counter.  Typical... We were not impressed in ten stores, as a people rating forget it… from the top down.

Burger King Decapitates Itself —  12-27-2017…  We, my team have noticed Burger Kings burgers in the Whopper have gotten a tad smaller.  They came out with, a stroke of genius or maybe the genius had a stroke and he woke up.  A  smaller burger which is the same whopper on a smaller bun and I think the origional bread sandwich with the 5 inch bun, no extra meat just bigger bread will go away. It’s a bread sandwich now.

Breaking Balls News — Clearwater, Florida — The original home of the Whopper was the home for some uninvited rodents a few days ago.   We’re uncovering the Burger King at 23904 US-9 North in Clearwater as it was temporarily shut down on June 18 after inspectors found evidence of live rodent activity.  State inspectors documented gnaw marks on hamburger buns from rodents beneath the front counter.  And they found rodent droppings beneath the storage shelf, sink and front counter.  

That Explains Why There Were No Roaches, The Rats Ate Them  —  Food temperatures were also an issue with liquid eggs on the counter at 56 degrees and butter packets too warm in the reach-in cooler.  Inspectors also discovered food stored on floor, including soft-serve ice cream mix in the walk-in cooler.

Other violations documented? Build-up of grease on the cooks line equipment, kitchen floor and under cooking equipment.  Ceiling tiles and vents soiled with accumulated food debris, grease and dust.   Holes in the ceiling at the center of cook line, where pipes lead into ceiling and other damage on the wall by the napkin holder near the drive-thru.

Janice Mathews, vice president of administrative operations, is disputing the information we received from the state and said the Burger King location wasn't closed.   Seems the KING is in denial. Screw the KING.

Hopefully The New Burger King Does Better  —  His name was Daniel Schwartz. He learned to make a Whopper in less than 35 seconds and blended in well with his fellow employees, except for the fact that Schwartz had a guy with a video camera trailing him. “I cleaned about 15 toilets in the past two days,” he boasted at one point, as if he’d just completed a marathon. 

Then he went on the grill to make burgers…  another clusterf*ck of thinking on the first day …  Schwartz was justifiably pumped. That June he’d been named Burger King’s chief executive officer, with a $700,000 annual salary and a potential cash bonus of twice that. There was another reason for Schwartz to be exuberant: He was only 32 and well on his way to becoming a star in the fast-food industry.

Making sure the fixtures in Burger King’s restrooms gleam is only one of Schwartz’s challenges. He’s Burger King’s 21st CEO since the company was founded in 1954. Crap on the bathrooms, crap on the food

The chain has had six owners and suffered from years of neglect and strategic incoherence. Unlike his predecessors, Schwartz isn’t just competing with McDonald’s and Wendy’s. He has to keep customers from straying to trendy newcomers such as Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread. Their sales in the U.S. last year grew 17 percent and 12 percent, respectively, according to Technomic, a food industry consultant. Sales were essentially flat for Burger King and its two primary rivals.

Chicken Nuggets  (Aka Chicken Turds)  10 for $1.49
Small bites of big flavor.  Very small.  Made with white meat, our bite-sized Chicken Nuggets are tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Coated in a homestyle seasoned breading, they are perfect for dipping in any of our delicious dipping sauces.

NOTE:  White meat does not mean you are getting breast meat. You are getting ground anything that looks white after the poor chicken was ripped apart by machine and then the “Chicken Turds” are glued together and molded into shape.

Competition With McDonalds?

 Not really McTurds are basically the same thing and really crap
