With a 1-in-3 chance of winning a prize, Burger King Worldwide is thrilled to unveil the Family Food Game at participating Burger King restaurants nationwide. Inspired by the popular game show “Family Feud,” every game piece can be a winner, where guests can instantly win from an assortment of fantastic and delicious prizes by correctly choosing the most popular answer based on a survey of 100 people.

Fans are invited to test their knowledge and Burger King trivia while enjoying their favorite specially marked BK beverages, sides, or combo meals.

Based on a survey of 100 people, guests “buzz” in by carefully scratching off the most popular answer for a chance to win their share of more than $225 million in prizes. With great prizes from one-of-a-kind experiences like a USA Basketball Fantasy Trip, Universal OrlandoFamily Resort Vacation, and Southwest Airlines®Airfare for a Year; to a 2013 Ford Explorer and cash prizes up to $100,000; or even BKmenu favorites, like the Whopper Sandwich, Croissa’wich or Chicken Wrap, it’s time to play Family Food. 

 “‘Family Feud’ was the perfect partner to create the new Family Foodgame at Burger King because it’s a timeless, classic American game show enjoyed by millions that’s easy to play, provides families with the opportunity to get together to enjoy our limited-time Summer BBQ menu, and ultimately allows us to become a part of the game by infusing BK-based trivia into the questions,” says Alex Macedo, senior vice president, North America marketing, Burger King Worldwide.

“And just as guests have the power to customize every order at our restaurants, Family Food puts the power in their hands by guessing the most popular answers to win great prizes,” he says.

 “We are thrilled to bring the excitement of ‘Family Feud’ to Burger King with an entertaining, interactive game that families can enjoy together,” says Amy Lorbati, senior vice president of branded entertainment and partnerships for FremantleMedia Enterprises. “Burger King and ‘Family Feud’ are both loved by Americans of all ages, and at FME, we are always excited about creating new opportunities for consumers to experience their favorite brands.”
