Burger restaurant owner in bankruptcy talks to buy a chain of burger joints

A restaurant owner is talking to investors to buy Burger King Inc., according to people familiar with the matter.

The restaurant owner, who wants to be identified only as Larry, told investors on Thursday that he had been approached by two private equity firms, a company that owns the Burger King chain of restaurants and another that has a stake in the chain.

The company said it had no immediate comment.

Burger King has faced a slew of consumer complaints about its prices and service.

The company has faced protests from residents who say they have had trouble filling their orders.

Burgridge said last week that it has received thousands of complaints about the burger chain and that it will be conducting a review.

The review, he said, will include looking at how to improve the quality of the food and how to streamline the company’s operations.
