Whopper fans, rejoice. Burger King has announced plans to open more than 100 restaurants in Canada over the next five years.

Specifically targeting Ontario and Manitoba, according to a release, the fast-food chain aims to drive growth in the country’s “under-penetrated” burger market.

This expansion will increase the number of Burger King restaurants in Canada by 25%.

“For far too long, Canadian burger lovers have not had enough flame-grilled options to choose from,” said Matt Wright, general manager of Burger King Canada.

“Premium ingredients and signature recipes have defined Burger King for 50 successful years in Canada. We’re excited that even more Canadians will be introduced to the iconic Burger King brand and our great tasting food.”

Over the last year, the quick-service restaurant has announced an expansion in China and has launched two plant-based burgers in the US and Europe – the Impossible Whopper and the Rebel Whopper.

Approximately 10 of the new restaurants are expected to open in Southwestern Ontario in 2020.
