Fulwood Central retail park has become the latest home of the Whopper.

"Our home – of the Whopper! – is their home."

The restaurant will create 30 new jobs, including five managers and 25 crew members, and will also have a drive-thu option for customers.

Burger King says they have a number of procedures in place to "safeguard the health employees and customers."

These include additional PPE such as masks and gloves for staff, stringent cleaning measures, contactless delivery options via Deliveroo and all staff are "comprehensively trained on the Government’s social distancing measures" – including how to run kitchens hygienically, while abiding by them.
