Longtime area restaurant, Burger King, at 1200 S. Brentwood Boulevard in Richmond Heights, opposite the St. Louis Galleria Mall, has closed, Brentwood resident Barry Williams has reported.
The Burger King international restaurant chain was founded in Miami in 1954 and its Richmond Heights store was among the chain’s oldest surviving locations. When it opened in 1966 it was the company’s 194th store. Burger King now has about 17,800 stores, according to Williams.
The Boulevard retail complex is expanding southward toward the restaurant, which could be a reason for the Burger King’s closing.
