ATLANTA (CBS) — Burger King is calling for a ceasefire in the “burger wars.”
The fast food chain is reaching out to McDonald’s to propose a one-time, one-place collaboration that would combine the signature sandwiches of each restaurant into something unique – The McWhopper.
“All the tastiest bits of your Big Mac and our Whopper, united in one delicious, peace-loving burger,” Burger King writes in an open letter that ran in newspapers Wednesday.
Burger King says it was inspired to extend the olive branch by “Peace One Day,” a group pushing for an “annual day of global unity” on Sept. 21.
On that day, Burger King says it would open a pop-up restaurant with McDonald’s somewhere in Atlanta to serve the McWhopper.
So far, there’s been no response from McDonald’s.
