  • "Burger King was a fast food restaurant chain in Edmonton, also known as Burger King Drive-Inn. It was founded by former Imperial Oil executives... It was not related to the worldwide Burger King chain... Its signature item was the mushroom burger... In 1975, the company held a franchise for Kentucky Fried Chicken in Edmonton, with its outlets promoting dual branding. However, as the market became more competitive, the relationship between the two companies deteriorated, with KFC taking legal action to end the partnership... Several Burger King restaurants [have since] joined the Burger Baron chain"
