NEW: Burger King shutters Reston location

Burger King has shuttered its doors in Reston.

The business — which also closed its Elden Street location on Tuesday (April 11) — was located at 2270 Hunters Woods Plaza.

“Thank you so much for allowing us to serve you and the community for so many great years,” a sign posted at the door of the Reston location said.

Its last day of business was April 9. The company did not immediately return a request for comment from FFXnow on the closure.

A local resident who describes himself as a regular customer said the closure appears abrupt.

He said the restaurant had a hiring notice posted a few days ago. The resident was also able to place an order via an app online, but when he went to pick up the food, a blue bench blocked entry into the drive-through. He was later told the location was closed.

“Their staff was very helpful and respectful,” the resident said. “Sad to see it shut down.”

Restaurant Business Magazine reported this week that Meridian Restaurants Unlimited — a Burger King franchisee — has plans to close 27 Burger Kings across several states. Locations in Virginia were not on the list.
