Fast food giant Burger King opens first restaurant in Lagoa

Fast food chain Burger King has opened a new restaurant in Lagoa, bringing its number of restaurants in the Algarve up to 11.

It is located on Rua dos Vales at the entrance of town, just a stone’s throw away from the EN125 road.

The 350sqm restaurant seats 182 people (110 inside and 72 outside) and is open from 11.30am to 11pm every day except on Friday and Saturday when it closes at midnight.

The Drive Thru service runs until midnight from Sunday to Thursday and until 1am on Friday and Saturday.

Burger King Lagoa also boasts a ‘Play King’ play area for children, a drink refill system, a pre-order kiosk, free Wi-Fi, a take-away service and home delivery.

“We are very happy to strengthen our presence in the Algarve and open our first restaurant in Lagoa, thus continuing our expansion plan for this year,” said Jorge Carvalho, general manager for Burger King in Portugal and Spain.

“In the coming months, we will strengthen our presence in the country with more openings and more jobs, in an effort to achieve our main goal: to be as close as possible to the Portuguese people,” he added.

Burger King’s first restaurant in the Algarve opened in 2001 at Forum Algarve shopping centre in Faro. It has gradually been increasing its presence in the region, having also opened a restaurant at the new Sudoeste Retail Park, in Alcantarilha, just over a month ago.
