Burger King Switzerland sucks anal cavity

...so, last week, I went off to help out a fellow EFer somewhat in distress. I ventured out of civilization and headed to the boonies somewhere in Zurich. Since I was somewhat under time pressure, I decided to grab lunch on the road somewhere. Naturally, McDonald's is my weapon of choice but no franchise were ideally within my trajectory and thus, I decided to opt for something less healthy and probably less tasty as well. I decided to head to Burger King.
I ordered, wanted to get a seat and bumped my head on the lamp. Now, I might be larger than life but I'm certainly not 12 feet tall. Thus I went on to analyze the situation and noticed that the tables were not lined up with the lamps. Yes, you heard right, the tables were not lined up with the lamps, thus anybody taller than your average gnome will most likely bump their head into a lamp at that particular Burger King franchise. I voiced my complaint directly with Burger King on the website. It's been a week and I still haven't heard from them. Furthermore, when I had to select "time of visit", there was no 2017 option, Burger King is still stuck in 2016!

Today, I dropped by another Burger King franchise, because I know that they accept blind applications onsite. I inquired about an open position for a highly talented kid who's out of luck and I wanted to speak to the manager. Initially, the regular staff was somewhat hesitant saying she doesn't know etc. Even though, it clearly states on a sign, that one can apply directly at a franchise. Obviously, there's something wrong with Burger King, the fact that the website hasn't been updated, that I haven't heard from them and that staff isn't even aware that one could apply directly at the franchise.

As far as I know, they were recently bought by Tim Horton's...but they were once part of some conglomerate consisting of KFC and Taco Bell.

Re: Burger King Switzerland sucks anal cavity

Surely this a first world problem thread? IMO Burger King beats MacDs hands down, its the flame grilled taste they give their patties prior to the freezing and thawing and microwaving.

I'm blaming management..not Canada or anybody else. Typical organization which doesn't work anymore and will be floating in the reds in no time. It's bad enough that in terms of location management, they have to ape after Mikky D's...but they're also copying burgers with the Big King and started offering chicken nuggets.

Thank you Burger King, you won't have my business anymore...and this is coming from somebody who loves junk food.

I never got the "flame grilled taste" thing, as flames are the last thing that one wants when grilling.

Exactly, like we're supposed to be impressed with flames when grilling. Oh, look it's genuinely grilled over flames. Bunch of yuppie marketing bozos behind this IMO.

Re: Burger King Switzerland sucks anal cavity

I paid 12 francs for a vanilla shake at Micky D's on a drive from the Landquart outlet mall. Any shopping savings I'd made - blown at the temple of the golden arches. I like their Fillet of Fish. And they do good fries. But the burgers at the King are FAR superior. Luckily our nearest BK is 40 minutes drive away. Or I would be a whole lot more padded for the winter hibernation....

Never, get off my thread! BK's burger's are a lump of nasty, soggy something and they taste like 2 day old socks. There, I said it.

BK's lettuce always tastes spoiled and their chicken is always soggy. I haven't had a BK chicken something in years. In comparison, the McChicken is crunchy and tastes fresh.

hahahaha. you clearly have the golden arches chemicals coursing through your veins. fresh milk and fruit will never taste right to you. a real roast chicken vs mcnuggets will never course comfortably through your bowel. you dream not of ending at the pearly gates with St Peter, but of walking hand in hand with a funny looking clown through that magical M. good luck to you sir!

This happened to me in a KFC store in the glorious metropolis of Chatham, Kent, South East England.

In fairness it was 11pm, and I was a little tipsy, seeking an alternative to the UK donner kebab as a stomach lining anti hangover solution. But a close study of the photographic evidence the following day confirmed that KFC were indeed doing silly things with their light vs table placements

Re: Burger King Switzerland sucks anal cavity

What really smashes the pacifier out is the price of a Whopper Jr.
(My favorite munchies killer)
PS: I think BK Switzerland have not really open flame Or do they?. With such thin patties: No flames , no Maillard reaction, no taste.

Re: Burger King Switzerland sucks anal cavity

We go to McD's in Waldshut. When we get out of the car my wife makes a point of making me promise not to get aggravated. I generally do nonetheless...

But I think we expect too much from people in places like that. It doesn't make it easier, but I think we need to manage our own expectations better.
