Burger King will operate in the TRNC despite embargoes
American multinational chain of hamburger fast food restaurant Burger King has officially begun to operate in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), overcoming the long-running commercial embargo, blocking attempts and restrictions imposed by the Greek Cypriots.
Within the past 20 years, the U.S. multinational fast food chain has been operating in TRNC under the brand “Burger City” in regards to the pressure from the Greek Cypriot Administration.
Succeeding the intense negotiations, the U.S. giant’s official brand will rise for the very first time over its newly-opened branch along the Nicosia-Kyrenia highway. Burger King opened its first restaurant under its own brand name in 1999, but was pressured by the Greek Cypriots to change it into Burger City.
In reference to reports, all the restaurants that currently operate under the Burger City brand will adopt the signs, menus and standards of Burger King.
