TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/13 -- Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: BKW) announced today that, for the first time ever, Canadians can visit their local BURGER KING® restaurant to satisfy their craving for a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries. The two new menu offerings, now available for a limited time at restaurants across Canada, are part of an ongoing commitment to provide Canadians with new, tasty and innovative menu choices, and giving consumers more reasons to visit BURGER KING® restaurants more often.

"Our new BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries are two feel-good menu options prepared with Canadians' demanding tastes in mind," said Alison Fletcher, Director of Marketing Canada, Burger King Worldwide, Inc. "We are committed to constantly providing our guests with new and exciting menu choices- and of course the great-tasting food they love and expect from the BURGER KING® brand."

The new BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is made with tender, slow cooked pulled pork dressed in bold BBQ sauce, and is topped off with fresh sliced onions and cool creamy sauce - all on a warm, toasted artisan-style bun. Customers can upgrade the french fries in any combo, including their favourite WHOPPER® sandwich, to include Sweet Potato Fries. Tropical Mango Smoothies, freshly blended to order at BURGER KING® restaurants with real fruit, are also being introduced along with the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries.
