The photo of FRIES KING was uploaded to Reddit‘s r/MildlyInteresting board recently showing the ‘former’ Burger King location on Southport Avenue in Chicago.

Industry trade publication AdWeek picked up the Fries King story with an article that focuses in on the confused reaction of consumers to the marketing.
