Wambie Whopper, a small fast food restaurant that has operated for many years at Wamberal, a lovely little seaside suburb on the East Coast of Australia, has been threatened by Hungry Jacks (Burger King).
The family business, which has operated for many years, received a letter telling them to stop using the word “whopper”.
The locals are not having a bar of it!!!!
Supporters not connected to the store apart from by loyalty started a social media campaign which received over 10000 followers in the first day. Click here to go to the supporters page.
People from across the Central Coast of NSW; across the state, the country and even from overseas are sending their support to Wambie Whoppers and their distaste to Hungry Jacks for their perceived strong arm tactics.
Many locals met at Wambie Whoppers to show support (and order the iconic Wambie Whopper burger). Here’s a little tune some supporters made up.
As a loyal long-term customer of Wambie Whopper, I hope that common sense prevails and our local institution survives the onslaught.
I’ve often driven on a whim, from wherever I am, just to enjoy one of their burgers.
I would never confuse this burger with the ones Hungry Jack’s serve.
