November 16, 2015. The world’s fastest growing quick service restaurant chain, BURGER KING has opened its first restaurant in Fiji at the Nadi International Airport serving its world famous burgers at the new-look Departure Lounge.
Burger King Fiji General Manager Akash Narsey said they were very excited to launch BURGER KING at the new Modernised Nadi International Airport Departure Lounge which reflects a world class airport facility boasting international luxury brands in retail and now world famous food with the addition of BURGER KING.
Airports Fiji Limited Executive Chairman Faiz Khan commended Motibhai Group for the milestone achievement of bringing a world-renowned brand to Fiji.
“When we embarked upon seeking expressions of interests from reputable operators, we had said to the public of Fiji that we were looking for international or local brands – we wanted brand names and Burger King is a big brand and we are just glad to have them here,” Mr Khan said.
“This BURGER KING restaurant which is ‘airside’ will be serving up our world famous burgers to travellers leaving Fiji via the new-look Departure Lounge,” Mr Narsey said.
He said the second BURGER KING restaurant also at Nadi International Airport will be in the Farewellers Hall by the end of 2016. Departing travellers, their family and friends will be able to enjoy BURGER KING’s flame grilled menu before they part ways.
But that’s not the end says Narsey. “The King will also be coming to town! We are excited to be opening BURGER KING® at Martintar, Nadi shortly and will be announcing our first BURGER KING® Suva restaurant over the next few weeks. We see our first BURGER KING® in the capital city open and serving our world famous burgers by mid-2016.”
“BURGER KING is an established global brand and we are very excited to be bringing their unique menu to Fiji,” Mr Narsey said.
“A lot of our menu is cooked over a flame grill which creates a unique tasting experience. BURGER KING is known for its consistent fast service, fresh ingredients and top notch quality which is reflected in our slogan – TASTE IS KING.”
And it seems as though it is just the beginning for BURGER KING in Fiji. “We have a very aggressive roll out schedule over the next 14-months with four stores opening before the end of 2016,” Narsey said.
“And we are expecting BURGER KING to be well received by the Fijian market because after all – TASTE IS KING!”
