BURGER King in Christchurch will be giving out free burgers this week in celebration of their opening.

The new Burger King has officially opened in Christchurch Trade Park and the branch will be giving away 1,000 free Whoppers to mark the occasion.

Burger fans will be in for a chance of grabbing the signature flame-grilled beef burger, or the plant based alternative, on Wednesday June 22 as part of a ‘Whopper Wednesday’ deal.
