A value menu (not to be confused with a value meal) is a group of menu items at a fast food restaurant that are designed to be the least expensive items available. In the US, the items are usually priced between $0.99 and $2.99. Burger King added a value menu in 1998 with items priced at 99¢ (USD), equivalent to $1.57 in 2020.
A cheeseburger is a hamburger topped with cheese. Traditionally, the slice of cheese is placed on top of the meat patty. The cheese is usually added to the cooking hamburger patty shortly before serving, which allows the cheese to melt. As with other hamburgers, a cheeseburger may include toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, bacon, mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard.
The word [bacon] is derived from the Proto-Germanic *bakkon, meaning “back meat”.
In 2011, the majority of Burger King restaurants, approximately 90%, were privately held franchises.
