Burger King UK Ltd says the 45 square-metre, 12-seater restaurant will be operated by BURGER KING® franchisee Little Chef.

Rebecca Phillips, Director of BURGER KING® for Little Chef, said: “The new drive-thru restaurant boasts the new global interior design, now seen in many BURGER KING® restaurants in the UK and around the world – with modern, urban touches, sociable eating areas and touches of the local community.

“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.”
