Million-euro Areas investment in the framework of an agreement with BURGER KING®
The opening of this new benchmark outlet at Barcelona-El Prat is part of an alliance signed by Areas
and BURGER KING® early last year, whereby both companies agreed to open outlets located primarily in
airports and motorway service plazas.
The opening of this restaurant in Barcelona — the ninth opened by the two companies together — joins

effort has so far involved an investment of €2.5 million for Areas.
