New York--As British liquor giant Diageo Plc ponders ways to dispose of its Burger King business, one thing is certain: the new owners will face a whopper of a task to boost sales amid unprecedented competition in the fast-food industry. As Diageo finalizes its long-awaited plan to shed the hamburger chain to focus on its core drinks business, analysts say a clean break would give Burger King a chance to revamp itself in the eyes of customers and franchisees. The company hopes changes like its new menu items and management team will improve Burger King's sales. -Reuters
