Restaurant Brand International's Burger King clearly has one goal in life: to reinvent the Whopper until the end of time. Originally launched in 1957 by Burger King co-founder Jim McLamore as a way to capture the flavor of a beef patty cooked on the grill on an idyllic summer day, the sandwich has enjoyed 65 years of success, making it one of the industry's best-known legends. McDonald's Big Mac, for example, didn't come around until 1968, and the Quarter Pounder didn't debut until 1972, giving the Whopper 11 years to enjoy the spotlight exclusively.
