FAST-FOOD lovers in Kidderminster may no longer need to leave the district for their Whopper fix - if plans are approved by council planners.

A planning application has been submitted to Wyre Forest District Council to install various Burger King drive-thru signs at a unit in Foley Business Park in Stourport Road.

Currently, the nearest branches to Kidderminster are located in Redditch, Birmingham or Dudley.

A spokesman for Burger King said "nothing has been confirmed about a new restaurant opening in Kidderminster" but revealed a franchisee is exploring opportunities for a Kidderminster branch.

The spokesman added: "Burger King franchisees are regularly evaluating opportunities to bring our great-tasting products to more guests in new locations.

"We do not currently have any information regarding a restaurant at this location but will keep you informed of further information if it becomes available.”
