             Turns French Fries and Onion Rings into Opportunity

MIAMI - May 13, 2013 - The BURGER KING McLAMORE^SM Foundation, the
philanthropic arm of Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: BKW) today announced
the kick-off of its 2013-2014 fundraising season with its annual Spring
Fundraiser.

Beginning on May 15 and continuing through June 12, 2013, for each $1 donation
made, BURGER KING^® restaurant guests will receive a graduation-themed paper
icon containingtwo value-size French fry or onion ring coupons and the
opportunity to "help make a scholar." Available in participating restaurants
nationwide, every 1,000 icons purchased helps fund a scholar. If you love
fries, rings or a combination of both, you can help a deserving graduate
embark on a college education. All proceeds of this in-restaurant fundraiser
will benefit high school seniors all over the country, as well as employees,
their spouses/domestic partners and children in the BURGER KING^® system.

The BURGER KING^SM Scholars program is one of the premier programs of the
BURGER KING McLAMORE^SM Foundation which is named in honor of the BURGER KING®
brand's co-founder, James W. McLamore, whose commitment to philanthropy and
education made him a pillar of community service throughout his lifetime. To
date, the BURGER KING McLAMORE^SM Foundation has awarded more than $17 million
in scholarships to high school seniors, BURGER KING^® employees and their
children across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico through the BURGER KING^SM
Scholars program.

"One of the most rewarding initiatives we support every year is the
Foundation's BURGER KING^SM Scholars program," says Christopher Ondrula, Chief
Executive Officer of Heartland Food, LLC, the second largest BURGER KING^®
franchisee. "When we get letters from wonderful young adults in our community
who tell us we are making it possible for them to be the first ones in their
family to go to college, it's hard not to share in their pride of
accomplishment."
