Fast-food chains: Come for the coffee, stay for the cheeseburgers and french fries

Burger King QSR QSR, +0.51% announced on Friday a new $5 coffee subscription, allowing customers to get one small cup of hot brewed coffee everyday for a month.

To access the Burger King Cafe Coffee subscription deal, customers can download the Burger King app. The service only applies to a small hot coffee and cannot be paired with a delivery order.

The discount coffee comes at time when America faces an obesity epidemic that some say is partly fueled by junk food.

A small cup of coffee at Burger King without the subscription service varies between $1 and $1.29 depending on the market, however the Miami-based chain announced it would drop the price of a small cup of coffee to 50-cents for those who don’t participate in the subscription service starting Monday.
