Burger King’s story began when Keith J. Kramer and his wife’s uncle Matthew Burns were also inspired by the success of the McDonald’s franchises over in California. They opened their first store in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1953. They built a stove called the “Insta-Broiler” where their burgers were cooked. Their stores were named “Insta-Burger King.”
