MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BURGER KING® restaurants uniquely use fire to flame grill the WHOPPER® sandwich, also known as AMERICA’S FAVORITE BURGER®. Getting fired might not be fun, but at BURGER KING® restaurants getting fired like the flame-grilled WHOPPER® sandwich is always a good thing.
This is why BURGER KING® restaurants will give a free WHOPPER® Sandwich to anyone who’s been fired. But there’s a hook. You must publicly confess to getting canned on LinkedIn.1 That’s right: own your fire!
Go to LinkedIn and post the following public message admitting you got fired, “I got fired. I want a free Whopper. #WhopperSeverance.” Those who post will receive a personalized link to get registered and receive a WHOPPER® Severance package in the mail complete with a BURGER KING® restaurant gift card. 2
It has been said, that when one door closes another one opens - in this case, a door for a delicious flame grilled WHOPPER® sandwich. And because getting fired can be difficult, BURGER KING® restaurants have partnered with the career satisfaction experts at The Muse to offer 30-minute one-on-one Q+A sessions to the first 100 participants who post and register. 2
Part of the BURGER KING® brand’s mission is to hire hungry and hardworking people and over the past 3 years, the brand has created over 50,000 new jobs globally.
