Human Resource Management of Burger King Holdings - January 24th, 2011
Burger King, often abbreviated as BK, is a global chain of hamburger fast food restaurants headquartered in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. The company began as a Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant chain in 1953 originally called Insta-Burger King. After the company ran into financial difficulties in 1955, its two Miami-based franchisees, David Edgerton and James McLamore, purchased the company and rechristened it Burger King. Over the next half century the company would trade hands four times, with its third set of owners, a partnership of TPG Capital, Bain Capital, and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, taking the company public in 2002. The current ownership group, 3G Capital of Brazil, acquired a majority stake in the company in a deal valued at $3.26 billion (USD) in late 2010.
At the end of fiscal year 2010, Burger King reported it has more than 12,200 outlets in 73 countries; 66 percent are in the United States and 90 percent are privately owned and operated. Over the course of its history the company has used several variations of franchising to expand its operations. The manner in which the company licenses its franchisee varies depending on the region, with some regional franchises known as master franchises and are responsible for selling franchise sub-licenses on the company's behalf. Burger King's relationship with its franchises has not always been harmonious. Occasional spats between the two have caused numerous issues, and in several instances the company's and its licensees' relations have degenerated into precedent-setting court cases.
