Veterans represent the spirit, strength, and courage of our country.  You have served to protect our values and our freedoms.  And it is through that protection that veterans generously serve as the face of our nation.

Burger King Franchise Owners throughout Wisconsin welcome veterans and their families to serve as the face of our Brand.  Burger King has long been dedicated to doing the right thing and as a first step in that process; Burger King is dedicated in supporting and investing in you.  

Wisconsin owners and operators are always on the lookout for ambitious and dynamic people to join our performance-driven teams.  In our fast-paced restaurants, we look for responsible and hardworking problem solvers to guide us.

At Burger King, we offer job opportunities for veterans, their spouses, and their children (age 15 and older). Positions are full and part-time, hourly and salaried, and we provide competitive pay and benefits based on your experience.  
 
Whether you are familiar with the restaurant industry or just starting out, the Burger Kings of Wisconsin provide training and flexible scheduling to accommodate your needs and to assist in your development.  
 
We are hiring employees who are motivated, accountable, and who take ownership, to fill our crew, management, and maintenance positions.
