7. There Was a Whopper for Dogs
Late last year, Burger King rolled out the “Dogpper,” a Whopper just for dogs. The “Dogpper” was a flame-grilled, Whopper-flavored dog biscuit made with real beef, cheddar cheese, oat flour, brown rice flour, eggs, and sesame seeds. To get a “Dogpper” for your pooch, you had to first place an order for a human Whopper through DoorDash, the chain’s online delivery service. If customers used the code “DOGPPER” when ordering, they weren’t charged a delivery fee on orders over $10. The promotion lasted from late November through early December.
6. Whopper Wi-Fi is a Thing
Burger King launched Whopper Wi-Fi back in 2014 in an attempt to improve the customer experience. “Most of our guests carry smart phones or tablets, and this upgrade makes their time with us easier and more enjoyable,” said Alex Macedo, President, North America, BKC, according to AT&T. “We are committed to enhancing our digital platforms across the board and having Whopper Wi-Fi is just the beginning.”
Whopper Wi-Fi is powered by AT&T Ready Zone, requires iOS 10.0 or later, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You can download the app for free on Google Play Store and the App Store.
5. They Were Available for a Penny
Back in December, Burger King was selling the Whopper for one cent in a campaign called the “Whopper Detour.” Here’s how it worked: You had to go to within 600 feet of a McDonald’s (yes, you read that correctly) and order a Whopper using the Burger King app, then head to the nearest Burger King location to pick up your sandwich.
A video promoting the stunt showed footage of customers pulling up to a McDonald’s drive-through and ordering Whoppers. The campaign lasted from December 4 to 12.
