Burger King is MIA … for now

News brief and photo by WNLP’S Beth Boardman
     I’ll have a Whopper with … hey, wait a minute.
     The drive-through, the paper crowns and the whole building are suddenly missing from La Porte’s west-side Burger King. The building has been razed to make way for a more modern BK in the same spot. So if you have a hankering for a Whopper, go east, young man.

    For what it’s worth, I received a request on 17 August from the Marketing Manager of Quality Dining, Inc. who own the Burger King restaurants in La Porte. She reported that one is being rebuilt and they are interested in the history of La Porte County. In the future, customers will be able to view some of La Porte County”s historical photos that will be furnished by the La Porte County Historical Society, Inc. This is a nice gesture on their part and is appreciated.

    Darn! I was hoping Burger King was being torn down to make way for a new Frostop!
