Burger King franchisee pushes back against company’s lawsuit

Guillermo Perales’ attorney said the brand’s termination of 37 Texas restaurants was improper and that the company is trying to get the operator to sell.

The company has terminated the operator’s franchise agreements for 37 stores in Texas, one of which was the subject of a video featuring rats in the kitchen.

Taco Bell, Burger King, Carl's Jr., White Castle and others are offering more vegetarian items, but vegetarians aren’t necessarily the target.

The chain becomes the latest, and largest, to consider a meatless option.

The aim is getting precious space on customers’ phones for an app.

The app-based BK Cafe Subscription costs $5 a month and entitles users to one small brewed coffee per day.

But the operator's margins took a hit last quarter due to intense promotions.

Quick-service giants McDonald’s and Burger King lost out to chains such as Taco Bell and Chick-fil-A last year, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The $238 million deal includes 55 Popeyes locations—a new brand for the company—and 166 Burger King restaurants.
