After Insta-Burger King ran into financial difficulties in 1954, its two Miami-based franchisees David Edgerton and James McLamore purchased the company and renamed it "Burger King". It was just the wordmark, not the symbol added.

Introduced on May 1, 1969, this logo is two yellow-bun halves sandwiching the text. This logo was briefly revived for a commercial during Super Bowl LIII in February 2019. In May of the same year, it was reused on cup drinks to promote the third season of Netflix's series Stranger Things (which takes place in the 80's).

Introduced on May 1, 1994, this logo is a modified version of the 1969 logo with the text looking much less cartoony than in the original. Although this logo was retired in 1999, it is still used in some countries including Australia, where the Hungry Jack's restaurant chain uses a logo based on this design.

On December 21, 2020, Burger King started rolling out a modified version of the 1969 and 1994 logos. Restaurants, commercials, uniforms, and the majority of Burger King's branding and products have been changed to feature this logo, with its website and mobile apps being updated to include it on January 7, 2021, along with a full overhaul of the website and app. There are currently plans to overhaul Burger King's restaurants, and having this logo be the face of the locations.
