According to the Toronto Star, the voluntary package has been extended to 15 managers in corporate-owned restaurants, but it doesn’t include sales staff at it some 3.800 franchise locations.
The Star also says permanent full-time and part-time staff in ranked below Vice President at the Oakville head office have been offered the deal, with just over three percent taking the offer.
A spokesperson told the publication that the offer was to provide employees with “generous financial means,” allowing them to explore other career opportunities.
The move comes after around 350 corporate staff were cut following a merger with Burger King.
