Just imagine it. You’re a guest at one of the most glamorous weddings in history. You’re probably in France, somewhere on the outskirts of Paris. Every extravagant detail has been scrupulously planned and orchestrated. It is, as they say, “over the top.” Dinner is finally served and on your exquisitely beautiful, fine china plate sits …
A Whopper and fries.
That’s right, Burger King is offering to cater Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding reception.
While we don’t think that will fly with Kim and Kanye, it’s certainly been worthy of some press. Just exactly how did that offer get extended anyway? Burger King isn’t in the business of catering weddings, especially not for a couple who may currently be the most famous duo on the planet.
It appears that there are rumors circling that claim that Kanye has bought Kim a chain of ten European Burger King restaurants. Supposedly, a source shared the information with a U.K. tabloid, saying that “As always, Kanye is thinking outside the box when it comes to gifts for Kim. She owns all the jewels anyone could ever want, so he is taking the practical route by investing in businesses for her instead. He knows the fast food industry is reliable and lucrative, plus BK is international so he thinks it’s the perfect fit for Kim.”
It seems difficult to believe that fast food restaurants would hold any business appeal for Kim Kardashian. Let’s see, there’s a clothing line, clothing stores, makeup, fragrance, tanning products, and jewelry bearing the Kardashian name right now. We’re pretty sure the Kardashian Kids line just launched, but honestly it’s hard to keep up. We can’t understand how 10 Burger King restaurants in Europe fit into the growing portfolio. But we guess you never know!
“Burger King Corp. is familiar with the recent news stories regarding Kanye West and Kim Kardashian,” a company spokesperson said in a statement. “We are unaware of any purchase of BURGER KING® restaurants made by either Mr. West or Ms. Kardashian, but we’re available to cater the wedding!”
Haven’t yet heard a peep from the happy couple about that suggestion. FoodFacts.com can’t imagine that we will. While it was certainly a generous offer, we’re pretty sure that Burger King isn’t expecting to hear from them either. With hundreds of guests traveling to France for an extravagant wedding celebration, we’re fairly certain that the feast will reflect the setting — and that the ingredients chosen to create that feast don’t exist anywhere in the Burger King repertoire!
