A Closer Look

The Berea Burker King is approximately one hour south of Lexington, and according to what its manager Ashley Nicole told WBON-TV, the location's future is in question.

EG America, proprietor of the Burger King location, has sold the adjoining Minit Mart which means the fast-food joint will also be on the market.

EG America sold off its properties to the Casey's convenience store chain, while Nicole also told WBON-TV that another franchisee may purchase and reopen the restaurant.


The closing of the Brea Burger King is indicative of the increasing economic challenges of various business operations around the country.
