“The Ely restaurant will showcase Ely Cathedral on the ‘My BK’ mural wall in the dining area.”
Jo Blundell, Marketing Director for Burger King UK Ltd commented on the opening: “We’re very pleased to be expanding our restaurant portfolio with the addition of BURGER KING® Ely. The restaurant will serve all of the BURGER KING® favourites alongside new menu items such as the Rodeo BBQ Extra Long Beef burger.”
Ms Phillips added: “We’re very excited to be opening our 27th BURGER KING® restaurant, which will coincide with the refurbishment of the Ely Little Chef restaurant, which now has a Little Chef Express on the adjoining site. We’re confident that customers will like the great new look BURGER KING® restaurant and we look forward to meeting them in the opening weeks.”
