Burger King announced it has transitioned 31% of its North American field team fleet to electric vehicles (EVs) across 16 states, with a goal of 100% EVs by 2030, according to the company's news release.
The company added that the field team is the first line of support for franchisees locally and adds up to tens of thousands of miles driven each month.
“Franchisee success is the end goal of everything our field team does, and restaurant visits are critical to this partnership,” said Jeromy Gwin, BK Corporate franchise business partner. “I’m proud to work for a company that allows me to do my job in a more sustainable way.”
“It was instantly clear Burger King is serious about following through with their commitments and finding solutions that have a long-term payoff and positive impact on the environment,” said David Madrigal, CCO at Element Fleet Management. “The brand’s enthusiasm for the goal, combined with the team’s responsiveness and active partnership enabled us to mobilize vehicle sourcing and charging infrastructure installations at record speed — making this our fastest program launch across the nation to date.”
