BK is closing the doors of its first ever burger restaurant, the Dora Burger, in the heart of downtown Detroit, the company announced Thursday.
Burge, who served as CEO of the iconic chain from 1977 until 2011, will be succeeded by the company’s third CEO in the company history, Brian Miller.
Miller, who has served as the CEO of Burger Kings since 2005, will continue in his current role.
Burger King is planning to open a new Dora burger restaurant in the next several months, a Burger King spokesperson told Business Insider.
The chain said that it was opening the restaurant in Detroit, a city that was once the epicenter of Burger king, because of a lack of suitable retail locations.
The Dora was a groundbreaking and popular restaurant that served its customers the traditional, slow-cooked burger, with a side of fries and a choice of two sides.
In addition to its Dora locations, Burger King plans to open new locations in Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and other cities around the world.
In 2015, Burger king was bought by Kraft Foods, which has since acquired other fast-food giants like Taco Bell and Panera Bread.
