BURGER King has announced the opening date for their new Barrhead store.

It comes after the fast-food giant revealed they will be opening in the town's retail park on Monday, November 27.

As part of the opening day, limited edition Burger King tote bags will be handed out to mark the occasion. 

While on top of that, the restaurant will be giving away 1,000 free burgers to locals, including Whopper's and Chicken Royale's.

Punters simply just need to order one of the burgers at the counter or the drive-thru.

Meanwhile, the new eatery has also created 30 new jobs in the town.

Alasdair Murdoch, CEO of Burger King UK, said: “We know the people of Barrhead love the great-tasting food of Burger King, so we’ve listened to their requests and are very excited to bring all their favourites to their neighbourhood.

"Our home – of the Whopper! – is their home.”
