MIAMI -- Burger King Worldwide Inc. has expanded its BK Delivers program into Houston. With nine participating BK restaurants by end of year in the Houston metropolitan area, guests can now enjoy their favorite Whopper sandwich and crispy fries delivered to a location of their choosing--home, office, dorm or other location.

BK Delivers allows guests to order their favorite menu items by visiting www.BKDelivers.com or calling toll-free at 1-855-ORDER-BK (1-855-673-7325) to place an order for delivery from a participating BK restaurant that is located within the delivery radius. Proprietary thermal packaging technology helps to ensure that customers only receive hot, delicious food every time. BK Delivers is also available in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, as well as internationally in Turkey, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Brazil.

"We are thrilled to expand the BK Delivers test to Texas' largest city," said Alex Macedo, senior vice president and general manager of U.S. franchise business for Burger King Worldwide. "Our goal has always been to provide excellent service and great-tasting food to our guests. After seeing the success this program has experienced with residents in Miami and in the Washington, D.C. area, we are excited to bring this convenience to Houston."

With a minimum order of $10, guests can choose from a variety of popular menu items, including the brand's signature Whopper sandwich. Orders in the Houston area can be placed during delivery operating hours of 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. BK Delivers currently does not include fountain drinks, ICEE beverages, shakes, soft-serve desserts, coffee or breakfast items. However, real fruit smoothies, bottled soft drinks and water are available for purchase.
