Drones and Meatless Burgers Abroad: This Week in B2B

This week marked a milestone in drone delivery. The first FAA approved long-distance drone flight using neither a ground-based radar or human visual observer took place in Kansas.

This could be a major breakthrough for companies looking to deliver products via drone, and it’s something we spoke about on the latest business casual radio show, so go check that out.

Burger King is shipping its meatless burger to consumers in Europe.

Burger King’s parent company announce on Monday its plans to launch the meatless menu item in more than 20 European markets.

The Impossible Whopper helped the fast food chain’s same store sales increase by 5.5 percent in the third quarter, it’s largest quarterly jump in four years.

And last but certainly not least, it was Veterans Day on Monday.

Earlier this week we caught up with a Navy veteran who is giving back to her community through her business.
