Plus, Chick-fil-A expands to Long Island and Mast Brothers has a chocolate ‘beer.’

— Burger King continues to excel while McDonald’s continues to struggle. The former, which is now based in Canada, reported that same-store sales increased by 6.7 percent in the second quarter, while the latter’s dropped by 0.7 percent. Burger King attributes it success to new “innovative” items like its popular chicken fries and its extra long pulled pork sandwich. However, one place McDonald’s is being Burger King is in Germany where the chain plans to open 100 new locations, many of which will be former Burger King outlets.
