Whopper Bar Concept Art

?In what appears to be an effort to bring a hip, futuristic edge to a company that is anything but, Burger King is going to be updating their locations and trying to break free of the traditional fast-food image. These changes seem to reflect the same cutting-edge mentality that inspired the Whopper Bar concept, and the large scale re-model of their locations is expected to include TV menus, red flame chandeliers, and a more industrial feel.

The massive overhaul is reportedly going to encompass over 12,000 locations and cost each store in excess of $300,000. We’re not sure how much of an effect red flame chandeliers are going to have on Burger King’s bottom line, but we’re certainly looking forward to sitting down for a Whopper at what promises to be the trendy new hangout in 2010 and beyond.
