Burger King Delivers the Goods with Delivery in Houston
Burger King is inviting guests in the Houston, Texas, area the chance to discover why “Taste is King” from the comfort of their home, dorm, or office as the brand expands its BK Delivers program into the city.
With as many as nine participating Burger King restaurants by end of year in the Houston metropolitan area, serving both Harris and Fort Bend counties, guests can now enjoy their favorite Whopper sandwich and crispy fries, delivered to a location of their choosing.
BK Delivers allows guests to order their favorite menu items by visiting www.BKDelivers.com or calling a toll-free number to place an order for delivery from a participating BK restaurant that is located within the delivery radius.
The proprietary thermal packaging technology helps to ensure that customers only receive hot food every time.
BK Delivers is also available in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, as well as internationally in Turkey, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and Brazil.
“We are thrilled to expand the BK Delivers test to Texas’ largest city,” says Alex Macedo, senior vice president and general manager of U.S. franchise business for Burger King Worldwide.
“Our goal has always been to provide excellent service and great-tasting food to our guests,” Macedo continues. “After seeing the success this program has experienced with residents in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, we are excited to bring this convenience to Houston.”
With a minimum order of $10, guests can choose from a variety of popular menu items, including the brand's signature Whopper sandwich.
Orders in the Houston area can be placed during delivery operating hours of 11 a.m.–10 p.m., with delivery hours and pricing varying by location.
BK Delivers currently does not include fountain drinks, ICEE beverages, shakes, soft-serve desserts, coffee, or breakfast items.
However, real-fruit smoothies, bottled soft drinks, and water are available for purchase.
