It seems obvious. If Burger King is looking for something special for its “Burgers at Breakfast” initiative, it need look no farther than its New Zealand menu. That’s where the chain has added a Breakfast Whopper, a burger topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato and egg. Easy! It wouldn’t even violate the ongoing BK dictum that [...]
