The fast food chain is set to open in Terminus Road where Clintons was.
An application to change the use of the site from retail to a restaurant and hot food takeaway was approved conditionally last month.
Within documents submitted to the council it is confirmed that the plan is for a Burger King restaurant.
It is not yet known when the restaurant, which used to be in Eastbourne, plans to open.
Burger King has been contacted for a comment.
