Army Awards Dining Facility Contract to Burger King, Troops ‘Have It Their Way’ For Chow Ron August 1, 2012 Army 24 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: THE PENTAGON – Burger King announced today that it has won a multi-billion dollar contract to run Army dining facilities (DFACs), beating out strong competition from Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR) and Anthony’s Pizza. The contract, to provide food, supplies, personnel, and daily operations for all domestic and overseas DFACs, has a ceiling of $8.3 billion over 4 years. “We are very excited to bring ‘The King’ aboard to provide fast, delicious, and nutrish-ish food to our warfighters,” said Pentagon spokesperson Helen Kleiding. Kleiding said the decision to award the contract to Burger King was based primarily on their competitive bid, but also on soldiers’ current eating habits. “The nice thing is, there’s a Burger King on every single post anyway,” Kleiding said. “Every. Single. Post. Troops have been eating this crap for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for years, so we figured, why don’t we reduce some paperwork and just cut Burger King a check ourselves?” Army Wife Janeane Smith was excited over the announcement The new DFACs will be made over to resemble standard Burger King restaurants in several ways. The menus will be the same, employees will wear the same uniforms, and even the rest rooms will have the familiar, unmistakeable stench of Burger King toilets. The only difference, Kleiding said, is that soldiers will pay using an issued meal card. Tyrone Setzner, Burger King Vice President of Business Acquisition, said in a prepared statement, “Since the 1980s, when the first Burger Kings began spreading throughout military facilities like an uncontainable virus, we have been thrilled to provide hungry warfighters food that a 2004 Federal Circuit Court has ruled is indeed ‘food.’ No more questions.” For the most part, soldiers are excited about the upcoming changes. “I’m happy because Burger King lets me have it my way,” said Specialist Frank Alvarado, a soldier in the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg. “Yo, I’m just glad Lil’ Anthony’s [sic] didn’t win it,” Alvarado added, “because that greasy-ass pizza gives me the worst diarrhea. At least with BK, the shits are manageable.” Don't miss the next story.Get the latest news and alerts from Duffel Blog delivered to your inbox—free.

My meal card has always made my ass bleed, and switching to BK for every meal hasn’t changed that. Now my Platoon Sergeant is making me go to medical for a colonoscopy. Mostly because he hates me.
