How To Get Free Kids Meals At Burger King

Burger King has announced a new deal that will make parents everywhere happy in the aftermath of a conference call with President Trump and restaurant executives that took place earlier this week. The discussion that took place on the call was keeping drive-thru options open to feed people while providing financial support for the restaurant industry (via CNBC). 

Jose Cil, chief executive officer of Burger King's parent company Restaurant Brands International Inc., participated on the call along with the CEOs of major restaurant chains such as Wendy's, Subway and Chick-fil-A. When elaborating on the kids meal deal, Cil told Bloomberg that customers will soon be able to get two free kids meals for every adult meal purchased at Burger King's U.S. locations. The offer is for orders made online or through the brand's mobile app.

This deal is one of the latest moves from restaurant chains as they scramble to deal with the coronavirus and subsequent closures. In the CNBC report, the White House is said to have stated that the restaurant executives who participated were all committed to encouraging customers to use "drive-thru, pickup or delivery options in response to the coronavirus outbreak."

When can you get free kids meals at Burger King?

According to Thrillist, Burger King will start making this offer available on March 23 at participating locations and it will be good for takeout, drive-thru, and delivery orders — but the order must be submitted through Burger King's app or ordered online, according to Bloomberg. And the special on kids meals is not a one-time deal. The publication also reported that it can be redeemed once per day through April 6. For orders over $10, with or without the free kids meals, Burger King will also deliver for free.

RBI, which also owns Popeyes and Tim Hortons, has been working with its franchisees closely as concerns grow for the restaurant industry, which could lose 7.4 million jobs due to coronavirus-related shutdowns, as seen in Bloomberg. The shutdowns have also left Americans with limited food options. "We have the ability to help feed America," Cil told Business Insider. "It's really difficult for Americans to be fed, because it's going to be difficult for them to get all their other food and necessities from the supermarket." 

It looks like for the time being, one new way parents can feed their kids is free meals from their local Burger King.
