Plymouth has the first Burger King drive-through and is just a few meters from the one run by rival McDonald’s.
Famous for its signature Whopper, the chain has been on extended trails for the past two years and is now targeting the UK’s Ocean City. It has two outlets in the city center and no drive-through.
We are aiming for the former gas station on the A386 Tavistock Road, which is now used as a car wash, just a few meters from McDonald’s drive-through.
A complete plan application has been submitted to the Plymouth City Council requesting the demolition of the existing building that Carwash Plymouth is currently trading with and the construction of a one-story drive-through restaurant.
According to the company, the new drive-through will create 20 full-time and 20 part-time jobs, describe car washing as “ravaged” and improve the appearance of the area.
Burger King is growing rapidly, adding 30 stores annually through 2022 and hopes to increase the number of drive-throughs nationwide and acquire another store in Plymouth. At the Drake Circus Shopping Center.
Burger King’s plan statement states: “This application calls for a redevelopment of the site to facilitate the development of Burger King-operated drive-through restaurants.” Application submissions are for a significant portion of Plymouth’s urban area of the company’s existing stores. Driven by Burger King’s desire to increase its business presence in the Plymouth region, as it is outside its catchment area, it also reflects the strategic goal of expanding its portfolio of drive-through restaurant facilities nationwide. ..
“Burger King is an important employer of the locals in the area where we do business, and the new restaurant offers short-term employment opportunities as well as long-term full-time and part-time locals. Positions are mixed. At the construction stage.
“The submitted application also offers the important additional benefit of regenerating a long-standing devastated area that adversely affects the appearance of the surrounding area. To Tavistock Road, the main route from the northern part of the city to Plymouth. The location makes the application site look better. “
Burger King wants to build a 232.2 sqm one-story unit with “modern cladding” on Burger King’s corporate brand. If given permission, the building has an internal dining area with drive-through lanes and parking space, a toilet, and an enclosed trash can storage facility.
Burger King said: You can perform full-time roles. Building construction also provides additional private sector work.

“Second, site redevelopment replaces existing developments that are poorly repaired and do not actively contribute to the characteristics of the surrounding area.”
In addition, “This proposal can be seen as a significant improvement in gas stations that are not currently in use. This gas station has a negative impact on the surrounding area and stands out because it is on the Tavistock Road. This development is existing. Compared to the devastated gas stations that make up the development of, we will also actively contribute from a heritage perspective to improve the surrounding environment of the nearby designated monument, Crown Hillfort. “
