Fast food chain Burger King’s efforts to set up a mobile outlet at University Drive, Black Rock, St Michael, has hit a snag.
The Town & Country Planning department has issued a stop notice on the grounds that no permission has been given for the structure to be erected.
When Barbados TODAY visited the site Thursday the sign was nowhere in sight.
However, General Manager of Restaurant Associates (Barbados) Limited, the local franchise holder of the Burger King brand, Ryan Walters, confirmed the development, but said an application would be filed with Town & Country Planning by next Friday.
“They had given us notice that we need to do an application based on what we are proposing to do at the facility. So that is what we are going to do, actually make an application for whatever development we are doing there,” Walters said.
The mobile grab-and-go site, which is almost complete, is expected to be ready in a matter of weeks, pending the approval, and Walters said he did not foresee any challenges.
The international fast food chain officially started operations in Barbados in January 2013 at SkyMall in Haggatt Hall, St Michael.
It has since added outlets in The City, Warrens and Sheraton Mall, and now boasts five locations.
