A limited number of Burger King stores will reopen from Wednesday, 6 May, for deliveries of its entire menu on Mr D Food and Uber Eats.
South African fast-food outlets will be allowed to reopen for deliveries only on Friday under Alert Level 4, with most reopening on the same day.
Consumers will not be allowed to visit the fast-food outlets to collect their own takeaways, and food deliveries will only be permitted between 09:00 and 19:00 daily.
Burger King group marketing executive Ezelna Jones said 33 outlets will open with a high attention to hygienic protocols to limit the spread of Covid-19.
Jones said due to the limited delivery time window, and the 20:00 general curfew in place under Level 4, only a limited number of outlets can be reopened. She hopes more can reopen when drive-thrus are permitted.
