THE people of Suva can now have a taste of the world-renowned Burger King meals following the opening of its $2 million restaurant in the heart of the Capital City.

Located in the Central Business District of Suva, the quick service restaurant offers customers a wide selection of palatable menu and the famous signature burgers.

Officially opened by the children of St Christopher's Home, Burger King continues to grow with its impeccable service in the West and now in the Central Division.

Burger King Fiji director Tejash Patel said the people of Suva can now experience the different taste profile which was unique to Burger King.

"Understandably we will be under immense pressure for at least a month or so from the opening of the restaurant as with the hindsight we anticipate hordes of customers turning up to savour the city's newest flavour," Mr Patel said.

"In the recent past we had so many enquiries into the opening of the store and the excitement and curiosity around the brand continues to grow from our customers.

There will be a buzz created by this opening and will cause a frenzy amongst people so my request to customers is to bear with us in the first month of operations as there will be flocks of customers waiting to get the scrumptious taste of the world famous burgers.

We expect very long queues and we will try our best to ensure that we are able to extend our menu to every customer." St Christopher's Home sister-in-charge Kalo Tuineau said the children were happy to officially open the Burger King restaurant in Suva.

Not only did the children open the new restaurant they were also treated to a meal and were given a gift by the Burger King directors during the opening.

Fiji Society for the Blind executive director Barbara Farouk said the society was glad that they were invited to be part of the opening too on Friday.

"We were given a donation of $2501 from the company during the official opening and this will assist the society with its daily functions.

We are so happy and grateful for the assistance given to us," she said.

Burger King Fiji general manager Akash Narsey said a total of 60 people have benefited with employment opportunities from the new outlet in Suva.

"As customer feedback is important we look forward to working closely with our patrons to ensure total satisfaction not only with the taste profiles or our menu, but with customer service as well," he said.

The restaurant opens today at 6am in Suva.
