Burger King is raising the price of its $1 double cheeseburger deal in an effort to appease franchisees, who say the value meal hurts profits. Instead, Burger King will offer a double burger with one slice of cheese, called the BK Dollar Double, for $1 starting in April. The price cuts had been designed to drive more traffic and compete with McDonald's value meals, but the moves sparked the ire of franchisees, who alleged in a lawsuit that the chain can't set maximum prices.
