The Burger King Corporation seems to be on the cutting edge of green technology, with the unveiling of its new energy efficient BURGER KING® restaurant located in Waghäusel, Germany. The eco-friendly design developed in cooperation with Wirsol Solar AG (Baden-Württemberg) utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and renewable energy to power one-third of the restaurant’s energy consumption, thus reducing energy costs by 45 percent and the emission of CO2 by more than 1201 metric tons every year.
A Green Franchise
This free-standing restaurant features the BURGER KING® 20/20 restaurant image of the future, which incorporates a variety of innovative and contemporary elements including materials resembling corrugated metal, brick and concrete. The 20/20 design takes the brand’s signature flame-broiling core attribute a step further by creating an exceptional and memorable dining environment.
