Burger King has been considering coming to Slovakia for some time but in summer 2009 its plans for expansion were delayed due to an unclear future timeframe, the ČTK newswire reported.

The Czech fast food chain Paneria will also open in the Eurovea complex. There are already several global fast food chains in Slovakia such as MacDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut, and Subway.
