Burger King has partnered with a new franchisee in Parkdean Resorts. The UK holiday park operator will open its first Burger King restaurant within its Trecco Bay Holiday Park, in which the hospitality group recently invested £3.6m.

The new restaurant forms part of a major makeover of the holiday park in South Wales which is one of Parkdean’s seven ‘Parks of the Future’.

Alasdair Murdoch, CEO of Burger King UK, said: “We’re excited to welcome a new franchisee and look forward to the partnership ahead of us. It’s brilliant to see expansion within the hospitality industry after what’s been a trying time, and we wish the best of success to the Trecco Bay Holiday Park venture.”

Steve Richards, chief executive of Parkdean Resorts, added: “We’re always looking to improve our food and drink offer, and Burger King opening at Trecco Bay will be a great addition for our guests on park to enjoy.”

The announcement follows the news earlier this month that Parkdean had partnered with premium fried chicken provider Thunderbird Fried Chicken, with the holiday park to open sites at its Camber Sands, in Sussex, and Trecco Bay, this month, with the plan to then roll out the offer to additional parks over the coming year.
