The Brookings Burger King should open on or “around April 17,” according to Director of Operations Heather Jared. She said the restaurant aimed to hire about 10 more people before then, but some food has been delivered, and the BK had passed all of its inspections as of Wednesday.

Jared said equipment was still being installed but much was already operational, and the store will hold a soft opening in about two weeks – around April 17 – and then a grand opening about a month later.
