Burger King Hears From Customers About Potential Move To Canada
NEW YORK (AP) — Some Burger King customers don't want to see the company move its corporate headquarters from Miami to Canada, in a deal that could lower its taxes.
Burger King announced yesterday that it is moving to buy Canadian doughnut chain Tim Hortons. And investors welcomed the news, with shares of both companies rising more than 20 percent.
But Burger King's Facebook page already has more than 1,000 mostly negative comments.
One man buying a Double Whopper and onion rings in New York today said Burger King shouldn't be paying taxes to another country. Shawn Simpson said it's "an American brand."
