United States fast-food chain Burger King has launched its fifth outlet in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
The opening of the new branch in Lavington is part of the franchise's plan to expand its footprint in the Kenyan market.
The new restaurant is located at the new Lavington Shell Fuel Station opened late last year.
Burger King joins other food chains such as Java and KFC that have put up new branches in the high-end neighborhood.
“The new outlet is part of the franchise’s continued expansion agenda that has seen the brand open four other outlets in the past three years with the most recent at Thika Road Mall,” said Burger King in a statement.
“The new branch with a drive-in facility will provide both motorists and shoppers with the opportunity to experience Burger King’s world-renowned burgers, the whopper among other products whilst enjoying the full Burger King experience in a stress-free and convenient environment.”
The Miami-headquartered fast-food restaurant opened its first branch in Nairobi at The Hub, Karen in November 2016.
The outlet was unveiled under a franchise agreement with NAS Airport Services, a subsidiary of France-based catering company Servair.
Burger King also operates three other outlets at Thika Road Mall, and on Muindi Mbingu Street and Moi Avenue in Nairobi CBD.
“This new branch, our first drive-through outlet in the country will service our customers from the Lavington area and the larger Westlands environs with the intention of ensuring a good experience in a stress-free and convenient environment,” the firm's operation manager in Kenya Cornelius Muhati said.
