"The Burger King system has already arranged for distribution services for the approximately 5,800 Burger King restaurants currently served by AmeriServe," said Tulin Tuzel, senior vice president of worldwide supply and research & development and chief technology officer. "We have agreed with AmeriServe to work through a smooth transition to new distributors over the next several months. We expect to complete the transition by July."
Burger King said that the Debtor-In-Possession financing it put in place to help AmeriServe meet its operating expenses following the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing on January 31, 2000, will remain in effect until August.
