It’s going to take weeks (though, more likely, months) before Turkey returns to any sense of normalcy following its military’s failed coup attempt and the subsequent crackdown by the surviving government, but the show must go on for retailers if they hope to have any part in the future of unstable economies. To that end, Burger King locations in the country are making online ordering just a little bit easier for their consumers.
Burger King and payments provider Wirecard announced on Thursday (July 21) that they added credit card integration to every store’s online ordering process. With this development, Turkish diners can order ahead through their phones or desktop computers and submit payment in one fell swoop.
That’s good enough to make Burger King the one and only fast food chain offering end-to-end online and mobile ordering in Turkey.
“Burger King is the leader of the hamburger QSR sector with more than 600 restaurants. We want to make the online order process easier and more comfortable for our customers as well,” Caner Dikici, CEO of TAB Gıda, Burger King’s international franchisee organization, said in a statement. “Thanks to the integration of credit card payments to our online shop by Wirecard, our customers now have the chance to order their food online and directly pay online via credit card. The only thing they need to do then is wait for their orders to be delivered to their houses.”
Sounds like one Whopper of a move for hungry Turks.
