Burger King to adjust prices in January

American fast food chain Burger King said Thursday that some of its prices will increase slightly in Taiwan, while others will drop, starting in January 2022.

In a press release, the company said the decision to adjust the prices on its menu was part of its overall operating strategy.

With effect from Jan. 11, the prices of some burgers will be lowered by NT$4 (US$0.14) each, while a number of other items on its main and breakfast menus will increase by NT$4-NT$10 -- 1.2 percent on average, Burger King said.

Chicken nuggets will see the biggest price hike, rising from NT$69 to NT$85 for a 10-piece order, and from NT$39 to NT$49 for the five-piece choice, the company said.

Some Burger King desserts will also become slightly more expensive, the company said, listing an increase in its regular sundae from NT$18 to NT$20, and its strawberry and chocolate flavored sundaes from NT$29 to NT$35. Espresso coffee sundae, however, will cost less, dropping from NT$55 to NT$45, it added.

Angus beef burgers and whopper combos will increase by NT$4, while most of the chicken burgers on the menu will be NT$4 cheaper, and prices on the "King's Collection" menu will remain the same, according to the press release.

The price adjustments will apply to about half of Burger King's current menu in Taiwan, while the other items will remain unchanged, the company said, adding that the cost of its delivery costs will also remain the same.
