The King is coming ... but when?

The King is coming ... but when?

The new Burger King on West Street in Keene is projected to open by the end of the month, Adam Kucharczyk, senior communications analyst for Restaurant Brands International, which owns the Burger King, Popeyes and Tim Hortons brands, wrote in an email last week. Though the eatery, in the Fairbanks Plaza that houses Kohl’s and ALDI, appears ready for business, Kucharczyk did not respond to several phone and email requests for a specific opening date. Calls to the plaza’s owner, Boston-based Unison Partners, were also unanswered. The fast-food chain most recently had a restaurant in Riverside Plaza on Winchester Street, but it closed more than six years ago.
