6. Table service

Chain: Burger King

Launched: 1992

"As you wait for the shrimp dinner to arrive at your table, you munch on popcorn. Relaxed, you sip a cold beverage and chat with your dining companion.

Is this your dream date at a fancy restaurant?

No, it's dinner at Burger King."

So gushed a 1992 newspaper article in the Orlando Sentinel about Burger King’s dinnertime table service. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Miami-based chain offered dinner baskets and other menu items brought to the table, and let customers have complimentary popcorn while they waited. The venture was heavily advertised but short-lived.
