Item 7.01.
Regulation FD Disclosure.
Beginning on May 28, 2020, Restaurant Brands International Inc. intends to share the following information, or portions thereof, in one or more meetings with investors and analysts. 
Home Market Comparable Sales Update
As of the third full week of May:
 
Tim Hortons Canada comparable sales were trending in negative
mid-twenties
up from the negative
mid-forties
in the second half of March
 
Burger King US comparable sales were trending in negative
mid-single
digits up from the negative
low-thirties
in the second half of March
 
Popeyes US comparable sales were trending in positive
low-forties
 up from flat in the second half of March
Sequential improvement in comparable sales in our home markets has primarily been driven by the continued strength of our safe and convenient drive thrus; the acceleration of our digital platforms, particularly in home delivery; growth in group orders and family bundles as an attractive and affordable dining option; and an overall improvement in guest perception of how our restaurant brands have positively responded to this crisis. For purposes of calculating comparable sales, if a restaurant is closed for a significant portion of a month, the restaurant is excluded from the monthly comparable sales calculation.
Restaurant Reopening Update
As of the third full week of May:
 
Substantially all of our restaurants in our home markets remain open
 
In Europe, Middle East and Africa approximately 60% of our restaurants are now open
 
In Asia Pacific more than 85% of our restaurants are now open, including 98% of restaurants in China up from approximately 50% at the peak of the crisis
 
In Latin America, approximately 50% of our restaurants are now open 
Many of our restaurants continue to operate with limited services modes, however, we are in the process of fully reopening restaurants where appropriate with extensive safety precautions and in accordance with local and government guidance. We expect to continue our reopening process very carefully and with guest and team member safety as our top priority.
The information contained in this Item is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for any purpose, and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, regardless of any general incorporation language in any such filing.

SIGNATURES
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, each registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
