ST. LOUIS, MO — A new Burger King recently opened in Pontoon Beach, IL and the community is invited to a celebration on Friday, September 27 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.  Activities will include a live radio broadcast from KSHE 95, special deals, the Impossible WHOPPER® challenge and more. 

The new Pontoon Beach Burger King located at 1301 E. Chain of Rocks Road has led to more than 30 new jobs for local residents. The franchisee Broadway Restaurant Group also will award a $1,000 college scholarship each year to employees or community members right in Pontoon Beach. High school seniors from the community or employees and their family members pursuing a secondary education degree may apply for the scholarship between October 15 and December 15 at https://bk-scholars.com When dining at the Pontoon Beach Burger King through October 31, guests can donate to the Burger King McLamore Foundation Burger King Scholars program.  

“We strive to hire and promote right from the surrounding communities, giving residents a livelihood and path to career growth. In fact, ninety percent of Broadway Restaurant Group managers have been promoted from within,” said Michael Adams, Broadway Restaurant Group’s Vice President of Operations. “We are so excited to invite Pontoon Beach residents to our team and become an active member of the Pontoon Beach community.”

Broadway Restaurant Group, the St. Louis-based Burger King franchisee selected for the successful national test market of the meatless Impossible WHOPPER®, is adding several more new locations over the next few months, including Bellefontaine, Hazelwood, St. Roberts, Hanley/Natural Bridge, Union and Jefferson City.

“Burger King has significantly upped their game over the last couple of years to stand apart from what people typically expect from a fast-food restaurant. ’Wow, this is a Burger King?’ has been the common guest feedback at new and remodeled stores,” said Henry Delouvrier, co-founder and managing partner of Broadway Restaurant Group. “There have been upgrades to the guest experience across the board – from overhauling the look and feel of the restaurants, to launching new and innovative products like the Impossible WHOPPER®, and improving the quality of ingredients in core products.” 

Broadway Restaurant Group is currently hiring employees in Pontoon Beach and their other new and existing Burger King locations across St. Louis, Southern Illinois and Missouri. Interested applicants can apply at https://www.b-restaurants.com/careers or in-person at any Broadway Restaurant Group location.
