04/12/1954 The first Burger King is opened

The company was founded in 1953 as Insta-Burger King, a Jacksonville, Florida–based restaurant chain. After Insta-Burger King ran into financial difficulties, its two Miami-based franchisees David Edgerton and James McLamore purchased the company and renamed it "Burger King". They opened their first restaurant at 3090 NW 36th Street in Miami.
