Burger King Q2 profit increases

US-based Burger King has announced its net profit rose by 60% in the second quarter of this year, after the global chain of hamburger fast food restaurants focused on growing abroad. In the past year, 80% of the company's new store openings have been in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which also posted increases in revenue. Revenue dropped 9% to $540.8m from $595.4m, but Burger King said that revenue at locations open at least a year, a key gauge of a retailer's health, climbed 4.4%.
