Burger King #169, 2902 Two Notch Road: October 2012 (open again)   8 comments

Posted at 1:21 am in closing














Here's another Columbia area Burger King getting a facelift.

This King used to be a regular Sunday lunch destination for our family. I particularly recall going there during the odd "Buy a burger, get a Neiman" promotion BK had during the 1970s. The location on the corner of Two Notch and Toronto gave the store a "sneak up" route which consisted of turning onto Dubard from Beltline and then onto Toronto, a route we kids always insisted our parents follow. Or I did, at least. Later we "moved up" to Quincy's for Sunday dinner, and I have hardly set foot in a Burger King in years.

UPDATE 15 January 2013 -- As of the evening of 14 January, this place was open again:

  1. I think it has been mentioned before that this was the first BK in Columbia/

  2. In 1976 I was hired as the "Youngest Assitant Manager" in the history of Burger King, according to the franchise owner at that time. I was 19. Anyway, this is the Burger King where I was trained, after going to "Whopper School". Whopper School taught me everything I needed to know to manage and operate a single restaurant, From cleaning the milk shake machine to taking inventory. One thing I found interesting is how their burgers and whoppers are assembled. Burger King wants the Whopper to taste the same from the 1st bite all the way through the burger. Unlike McDonalds which may have 2 pickles on one side of the burger and mustard on the other side., You may get all mustard the 1st bite and overwhelmed by pickles on the last bite. So BK taught us to assemble them uniformally. I worked approx. 60 hrs a week and made $135.00. what a shame. After 6 months I was transfered to the BK at Dutch Square. I had a lot of fun the short time I stayed with them and still assemble my homemade burgers today the way I learned then. I was in a hurry when I typed this comment and did not proof read it. So if mistakes....

  3. Hey, which Quincy's did you frequent on Sunday's? I used to work at the one on Rosewood from December 87 - May 89. We had so much fun working there. I worked every position. Dishwasher, side line, cook, front line, salad and hot bar, and even made the Big Fat Yeast Rolls. The only position I didn't have was cashier and manager.

  4. I'm not Ted, but used to frequent that same Quincy's during that same time frame, as I lived pretty close by. That and the old Western Steer just a little farther down Garners Ferry.

  8. normally, when a posting is marked 'open again' the posting's listing on the Alphabetical closings list also gets noted in that way but such is not the case with this post as of the moment I compose this
