Burger King Opens In South Africa, Minus The Bacon

burger-kingThe company that gave America the Sundae opened with a big splash in – but no bacon.

South Africa CEO Jaye Sinclair says people lined up for hours at the weekend launch in the coastal resort of Cape Town.

But a few customers called Talk Radio 702 Monday to complain there were no bacon dishes and ask why the company was catering to a minority. Sinclair said the company respects South Africa’s multicultural society and doesn’t want to limit its customers.

Official South African statistics show that religious groups that do not eat pork here include 11 percent of the 48 million people who belong to the indigenous Zion Christian Church, Muslims making up 1.5 percent of the population and Jews 0.2 percent.
