Burger King will work with this PR firm to always promote the Burger King image and to help with the media if legal or controversial issues arise.

For example, a Burger King in Kayenta has a Navajo Code Talkers Display which illustrated the Navajos ability to code tactical messages in World War II. Exhibits such as this will hopefully get new customers or stimulate old customers to come back.
