Burger King Introduces Social Distancing Crowns

Burger King Introduces Social Distancing Crowns

Burger King has introduced 'social distancing crowns' to help customers keep their distance from one another.

Diners in Germany will now have no problem keeping apart from other customers as the novelty hats make sure people are six feet away from one another at all times.

It comes as the burger giant starts to reopen its restaurants following weeks of lockdown.

Speaking to Business Insider, a spokesperson for Burger King said it was a 'playful' way of helping customers stay safe.

They said: "We wanted to reinforce the rules of high safety and hygiene standards that the BK restaurants are following.

"The do-it-yourself social-distance crown was a fun and playful way to remind our guests to practice social distancing while they are enjoying food in the restaurants."

But this isn't the first clever idea the folks over at BK have had to encourage customers to stay safe.

Over in Italy, for example, diners can buy the 'Social Distancing Whopper', which comes with more onion than the usual meal, with the idea being that the smell will put people off getting too close.

And it's not just Burger King that has been reopening its doors recently.

Hungry Brits were lovin' it as McDonald's reopened restaurants for drive-thru across the UK, leading to huge queues.

Footage shows cars backed up along the street as motorists waited for their first taste of Maccies since the restaurants closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, the chain revealed a list of branches that were reopening their drive-thru lanes and people soon flocked to the restaurants to get their fix. Indeed, police had to get involved in Peterborough to help control the flow of cars at the Boongate restaurant.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said: "Officers attended the McDonald's in Padholme Road East this afternoon to assist with the flow of traffic in the area. The road was not closed and officers assisted while McDonald's staff reassessed their drive-thru policy to deal with demand."

Yes, if lockdown has taught us anything, it's that people really do love fast food.
