With 1 1/2 stars out of five on Yelp, the Burger King on Alosta Ave. was doomed, and its destruction was practically inevitable. This location of the hamburger chain was torn down by Trachman Indevco, LLC and a drive-thru Starbucks, which will relocate from the location down the street, will take its place in the fall.
“It was time to add some different tenants to the shopping center,” Trachman Indevco, LLC president Andy Trachman said.
At the end of last year, the Burger King faced multiple issues. The ceiling leaked, causing it to temporarily close on Dec. 1, and it was permanently closed over Mid-semester Break. Comments on Yelp complained about poor food quality and customer service.
“That [establishment] being a fast food joint does NOT excuse lousy service, terrible food and an overall disgusting experience,” Vince M. said on Yelp.
Sophomore business management and philosophy major Amy Harms said she is looking forward to the Starbucks from the Stater Bros. center being relocated.
“Good riddance, [Burger King] was disgusting,” Harms said. “I am so thankful that Starbucks is coming closer. This is a great opportunity for them to make more money from me.”
