Default What's the story with the Burger King's in Columbus?

I've noticed most of the Burger King's I've seen are nothing like the traditional BK's I'm used to. These seem to be in old buildings, or were designed to look like old buildings.

Is there a story behind that here in Columbus?

Columbus is home to one of the largest franchisee companies for Burger King in the region. The one in front of Peachtree Mall looks like a train station because of the railroads tracks (now changed to a bike path). The Burger Kings in Columbus are typically nicer than those in other cities bc of that.

I always LOVED the one on Macon/Wynnton Rd...I am guessing it is still a regular Burger King. I don't get to that area much.

The Burger King on Wynnton Rd was once a private residence. Take a look at the Burger King office next to the Macon Rd. BK.

Everytime I pass by that office on Macon Road at night I always think its like a nightclub next to that Burger King looks more like a club than a office but thats just my opinion.

The franchise owners of the Columbus Burger Kings have a knack for flair. They want their restaurants to be different, and they are. They're not your average BK!!

The one of Miller Rd was one of the first ones in the nation to use the new "look" for BK, they just got done remodeling it. It's very nice.

But yes, the Columbus BK story is a true "American dream" story... guy that owns them started working at BK when he was a kid and now he owns some 73 BK's.

The one downtown is one of my favorite ones. Actually, I take that back... Wynnton Rd is the coolest of all BK's I've ever seen.
