Burger King starting to look more like McDonald's

  • Burger King (BKW -0.2%) plans to bring back the "Big King" sandwich with a Big Mac-like middle bun.
  • Restaurant industry analysts say the fast-food operator has been subtly altering its menu to more closely resemble McDonald's (MCD) with one exception being that it now offers a healthier french fries alternative (Satisfries).
  • A store upgrade initiative by Burger King to cut the perception that McDonald's is ahead of it in look and comfort is still a work in progress.
  • Though McDonald's hasn't seen spectacular growth in the U.S this year, it has outperformed Burger King the last two quarters in terms of comp sales.

    I guess people want the real deal rather than the copycat.
