That Burger King was the worst one in town, if not the world. It won't be missed.

Seriously - they gave away free food to all their friends who came in, massive amounts, and tallied it as 'spillage' and "spoilage'. The owners were not stupid. They know the rates nationwide. They knew it was fraud. So poor "sales" was the reason to close it. Thank the staff who never cleaned and gave away food!
