Yes, that’s right folks, soon you’ll be able to buy a Whopper at Burger King using your iPhone!
The 2nd largest burger chain in the nation has announced that they are going to be releasing a program in the very near future (and by that I mean within the next several months) that will allow customers to not only order and purchase that Whopper, but also take advantage of special coupons and “freebies” using their iPhones! Who would’ve thunk it? The coupons are reported to be things like $1 for any size drink, free fries as well as nutritional data about Burger King’s menu items.
The new app will be targeting the “millenial” age group of youngsters 18 to 35 years old, who they believe are the generation who will soon be looking to their iPhones to do almost anything in the future even possibly replacing the need for a wallet!
Bloomberg has reported that it will probably be in over 7,000 U.S. Burger King locations within a few months and they are also looking into the option of being able to order ahead of time and pick up at your local Burger King as well.
The way the app will reportedly work is by loading meal values on a “virtual card” inside of the app itself.
Bloomberg is also saying that other major chains like McDonald’s and Dunkin’ Donuts are also working on similar apps.
The future is here…Would you buy a Whopper using your iPhone?
