Company HistoryThe fast food restaurant chain Burger King

was founded in 1953 in Jacksonville, Florida as Insta-Burger King.

The owners opened their first stores around a piece of equipment known as the insta-broiler.

The Insta-Broiler proved to be so successful at cooking the burgers, the owners required all of their franchises to carry the device.

Miaimi, Florida franchises James McLamore and David Edgerton.

Type of Business OrganizationPartnershipBurger King started iff as a partnership

because it was Keith Kramer and his wife’s uncle Matthew Burns.

The advantages of starting as partnership was better for both of them because they both wanted to start a business and both trusted each other enough to start together and share with each other the profits and losses.
