Sometimes you just want to have a burger "your way." Where can you have a burger your way? None other than Burger King in South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota.

It was always so cheap to purchase a few Whoopers, a cheeseburger, a Big King Burger, BK Chicken Fries, or even sliders. But pretty soon, it will be a little bit tougher to satisfy your Burger King craving.

Multiple news outlets like Parade Magazine and TODAY are reporting 400 Burger King locations are set to close this year. A report TODAY explains "CEO of Restaurant Brands International Inc. Joshua Kobza announced during a call with investors that the fast food chain will be shutting down between 300 and 400 locations throughout the rest of the year. He noted that, typically, the chain only closes a couple of hundred locations a year, making this a historic high." 124 Burger Kings have already closed their doors this year.

So are Burger King locations one of 400 spots closing in South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota? The article from Parade Magazine appears to confirm some locations in the Sioux Empire could be shutting down next. As of right now, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Montana, North Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, and Michigan Burger King locations are set to close.

Burger King is really trying to stay open. The fast-food establishment even brought back some fan favorites to the menu like the melts (Classic Melt, Spicy Melt, Bacon Melt). There are also new Spicy Chicken Fries to try!

Fun fact: Burger King was the first fast food meal I ever had. It brings back a lot of great memories of road trips, practices, or games. I would always get a cheeseburger and my parents' go-to was a Whooper.
