As restaurants have reopened their doors to serve customers during a global pandemic, it's become clear that there are new safety protocols and design features that need to be in place to support community health, as seen in the new Burger King restaurant design. The new Burger King concept was created to support changing consumer behaviors and safety measures with dedicated mobile order and curbside pick-up areas, as well as drive-in and walk-up order areas.
The restaurant concept also introduces an enhanced drive-thru experience and exterior dining spaces, since the overall physical footprint of the location is about 60% smaller than usual.
Some of the most notable features of the "Restaurant of Tomorrow" include pick-up lockers for mobile and delivery orders, as well as a suspended kitchen and dining room above the drive-thru lanes to maximize space.
