First Burger King Jacksonville

A true fast-food rejoice today, as we celebrate the opening of the first Burger King branch!
The first Whoppers were grilled in Jacksonville (Florida) on this very day in 1954.

We can go all poetic on this, like Rainer Maria Rilke (*1875) would surely do… but the simple fact of the matter is, that this event changed lives in many ways.

From quick hangover breakfasts to road trip pit-stops, and family parties at the local BK.
Surely rapping legend Jay-Z (*1969), actor Jeff Bridges (*1949), and TV icon Tyra Banks (*1973) enjoyed a burger (or two) after long shooting days.

You might even be able to meet them there for some hangover fries tomorrow, after today’s birthday party!
