A Charlotte, N.C.-based Burger King franchise will spend between $350,000 and $450,000 to completely upgrade the fast-food company’s currently closed location at 210 East DeKalb St. in Camden. According to a façade grant application attached to tonight’s Camden City Council agenda, Big Bran Corporation -- which operates seven Burger King restaurants in the Charlotte area, three in Florence, two in Sumter and one each in Bennettsville and Easley -- will: • upgrade the exterior of the building (for which the city will match $3,000 through the façade grant); • add new lights; • paint with earth tone colors; • add Nichiha wood; • replace the Burger King logos; • replace the drive-through canopy; • repair the parking lot; • remodel the dining room; • replace the furniture; • add new air conditioning units; • replace the drink system; and • upgrade and repair the kitchen. According to the façade grant application, work will begin August 1 and is expected to be completed by October 1.
