    I work part time at Burger King at a holiday park.

    and my boss is always saying to us if you have any ideas that can help improve sales etc, and attract more customers then say to him.

    Any ideas?

    No offence, but I hate fast food companies...

    Never mind, as to tips I think maybe ask the customer if they want a larger size of something - for example if they order a medium coke ask them if they want a large coke instead.

    No sure if this forum allows threads like this, but I hope that idea was helpful, anyway :)

    Free bjs with every burger! I bet that will put your particular outlet over the top in no time. :D

    Dress up as the King and take their orders. Advertise that.

    Seeing as it's at a holiday park, something like a 'happy hour' might be good to improve sales. Take something with an extremely low initial cost (ie soda/fries etc), and give them free with another purchase. The store should not be losing out on this, as the profit margin on everything else is likely high enough to cover the cost.

    That's true but think of all of the potential sales to gay people in the area!

    Come up with a meal card, buy a certain amount of certain meals and get one free.

    ^^^ That's actually a pretty darn good idea. I think there are actual Burger King Bars though. :eek:

    It's sold through a few countries in Europe and was in India the last time I visited. It's not their own brew though --- it's just a cheap beer repackaged as McD's.
