All About Burger King India 2020 IPO | OpenGrowth

Looks like Santa came early this year for India!

Burger King is a quick-service restaurant(QSR) chain that is popular worldwide. Burger King has entered India in 2014, pretty late compared to their competitors like McDonald's, Pizza Hut, and Domino's Pizza who entered India in the late 1990s.

But they are one of the fastest-growing international QSR chains in India during the first five years of their operations based on the number of restaurants. (Source: Technopak)
