Burger King BOGO Croissan’wich Settlement Notes
- Koleta “Koko” Anderson v. Burger King Corporation
- Case No. 8:17-cv-01204
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland
In May 2017, plaintiff Koleta “Koko” Anderson filed a class action lawsuit against Burger King Corporation, alleging the company charged a higher price for two Nurger King Croissan’wiches when customers redeemed a BOGO coupon than had the customer purchased a single Croissan’wich without a BOGO coupon.
Following the filing of Anderson’s complaint, Burger King investigation the matter and determined in part that Anderson’s allegations were correct in that some customers in multople states who special-ordered two BK Croissan’wiches without egg, cheese, and/or a meat and used a BOGO coupon at certain Burger King restaurants. Burger King blamed the use of a particular Point of Sale (POS) system for charging customers full price and rolled out software to update the POS system and provided detailed instructions for Burger King restaurants to follow when honoring the BOGO Croissan’wich coupons.
Under the terms of the Burger King BOGO Croissan’wich Settlement, Burger King will compensate eligible Class members with either a $5 cash payment or a $2 Burger King gift card.
