Changes are underway at the popular chain.
FACT CHECKED BY Mura Dominko

There's a change afoot at Burger King. The Home of the Whopper is currently in the midst of an ambitious multi-year turnaround plan, one which has seen the chain beginning to rethink some key features of its business model, including advertising strategy, discount offers, late-night menus, and more.

Known as operation "reclaim the flame," the comeback plan is already showing results, with recently reported improvements in customer satisfaction levels.

Currently, the turnaround plan seems to be in its "flood the market with new products" phase, with Burger King releasing a new menu item or discount deal just about every other week. Here are some of the latest changes you'll now see on its menu.

The chain is currently testing out a new line of chicken sandwiches at select markets in New York and Virginia. The Royal Crispy Chicken Sandwiches are Burger King's latest take on the ever-popular item, with what looks to be a pretty standard chicken sandwich build but with the addition of an intriguing new "savory sauce." They come in classic, spicy, and bacon and Swiss cheese varieties, and may or may not be an eventual replacement for the Ch'King.
