Burger King had come up with an interesting burger proposal on the event of Peace Day. Burger King invited McDonald’s to join hands on Peace Day with a “McWhopper,” which McDonald’s declined lately.
Burger King extended its invitation on Tuesday to four other fast food chains to take part in the burger mashup. The fast food chains that were offered to craft burger mashup include Denny’s, Wayback Burgers, Krystal and Giraffas, according to CNBC.
It is to be noted that all fast food chains had accepted the offer lately and Denny’s made it public tweeting “we’re in! let’s hash it out over some hash browns,” from their official Twitter account.
McWhopper, which was proposed by Burger King to be crafted with ingredients from McDonald’s Big Mac and Burger King’s Whopper, is not accepted by McDonald’s. McDonald’s declined this offer in Facebook post as written below, according to Forbes.
“Dear Burger King,
Inspiration for a good cause…great idea.
We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.
We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?
And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.
We’ll be in touch.
-Steve, McDonald’s CEO.
P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.”
Though the McWhopper offer didn’t turn out well as expected, Burger King is working full-fledged on their Peace Day burger plans. The fast food chain has already started working on its pop-up restaurants in Atlanta. The funds made out of pop-up restaurants are to be donated to Peace One Day, a nonprofit group seeking to raise awareness for the International Day of Peace.
It is worthy for McDonald’s to note that Burger Kings McWhopper proposal is still on and they can be on-board any time.
