Burger King has begun offering delivery service to select locations in the Washington D.C. area as part of a test-market initiative, and the Fairfax Campus is one of them.

Students are now able to place delivery orders online or by phone. The website states there is a $10 minimum for delivery orders and an additional $2 dollar delivery charge that is added to all orders.

Mason has its own on-campus Burger King locale in the Johnson Center but Ram Nabar, Sodexo resident district manager, said that he’s not worried about the effect the delivery service might have on the on-campus venue.

“Competition comes from outside in various forms. It’s about convenience and location,” said Nabar. “There’s all kinds of people sending to food to campus.”

Burger King currently delivers from 10 locations in northern Virginia and southern Maryland, with plans to offer the service from 6 more Virginia locations in the near future. Delivery to campus is available from the Lee Highway location.

There was a mixed response from students who were asked if they would consider using Burger King’s delivery system. Three of five students who were asked said they didn’t think they would use the service.

Sophomore Steven Bennett said he’s intrigued by the idea of fast food delivery and will probably try it out at some point.

“It’s interesting, I’ve never heard of a fast food place that delivers,” said Bennett.  “Eventually I’ll try it just to see what it’s like.”

Customers can place orders on bkdelivers.com, but must first register an account to enable online ordering.  If you don’t want to register, you can call (855) 673-3725 to order over the phone.


Disclosure: Members of the Office of Student Media staff decided to test out and document the delivery process. Our order was placed over the phone by calling the above-mentioned delivery line. We were given a delivery estimate of 45 minutes to one hour. Due to an address mix-up, the order took approximately an hour and a half to arrive.
