Burger King's much anticipated London Colney venue will open with a bang on June 10, with the fast food giant set to hand out 1,000 free burgers to mark the occasion.

Burger lovers will have to be quick, with free Whoppers and Chicken Royale's available on a first come first served basis for the first 1,000 customers through the doors on Monday.

The 100th person through the door is also set to bag a year's supply of Burger King, completely free.

Restaurant manager Jerson said: "The team at our London Colney restaurant are so excited to open the doors to our new customers! We can’t wait to celebrate with this irresistible deal. We hope to see as many new faces as possible!”

The first 100 to arrive will also receive commemorative tote bags.

Additional discounts will be available throughout the day via the app, including large meals for just £5.99.

Located in Colney Fields Retail Park, the popular fast food chain's new site will create 30 jobs, including four managerial roles.

Burger King already has a number of Hertfordshire restaurants, including sites in Stevenage, Letchworth, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City.
