Burger King

KARACHI:  Burger King is finally coming to Pakistan, most likely in mid-2014, as MCR Pakistan, the franchisee of Pizza Hut in Pakistan, has entered into a master franchise agreement with Burger King Worldwide Inc, the country’s leading English daily The Express Tribune has reported.

While BK and MCR didn’t disclose the details of the agreement, sources familiar with the matter told the paper that the bidding took place in Dubai a few weeks ago. Three parties, including a Dubai-based investor, participated in the bidding, which went in favour of the MCR Group.

The paper added that there is not much skilled staff in the market, which may require engaging foreign trainers and the company hasn’t yet identified locations while the BK’s first outlet will be opened in Karachi.
