Default Burger King

Does anyone know what happened to "Burger King" in Bethel Park on Route 19 near South Hills Village. It was opened for business on Friday Morning and then 8 hrs later the signs were down it was like Burger King never existed it was strange.

That's weird, but it's no more different than seeing a store in the mall open one day and closed the next, everything still inside but never to open again.

Wow, that Burger King is gone?

When I lived in Bethel Park, I always went to the one on 88 near Pasta Too since it was more convenient. I guess too many other people did too.

What's the deal with Bethel Park and restaurants closing down anyway? I hear there was a Taco Bell and a Red Lobster there at one time, and the building the Gamestop near the Pep Boys is in was clearly a Long John Silvers once before. I'm surprised restaurants like these can't survive there.

I don't know about the Bethel Park location, but they tore one down inn Harmarville and built a brand new one in it's place. Burger Kings seem to be not as prominent as they once were. In fact, Wendy's over took them a few years ago as #2 in the burger share. There is longer on Downtown or in Oakland either.

I use to hit that location when I would be in the area. It was always clean and one of the nicer ones, but a pain in the butt to get in and out of the parking lot (confusing) for those who are not familiar with the roads. They needed to be in a easier access area.

Pittsburgh has been a tough market for Burger King. Domino's Pizza, same thing. Burger King was gone in Harmarville for a few years so maybe they lost the franchise owner and kept the property until someone else came along? Somehow Hardee's has remained in Millvale since the 1960s.

wonder why...

I don't personally get the attraction to BK or McD's either for that matter...Wendys is just much much better - (as far as fastfood burger joints go anyways)!

Burger King doesn't seem to do well in Pittsburgh. The egg and cheese croissant is the only thing I like on the Burger King menu.

That's because it's the only game in town. Plus, it gets a lot of pedestrian business from area residents who don't drive.

Wendy's does well at the Waterworks because it's the only fast burger joint with a drive through window in that area.
