68 Years of Orange Spirit

Whataburger Celebrates 68th Anniversary by Investing in Local Community


On Aug. 8, 1950, Whataburger started with a single road-side stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Now, 68 years later, with more than 820 restaurants in 10 states, we’re proud to celebrate our birthday with our community. 

That’s why we’re kicking off Orange Spirit Week, a week-long initiative celebrating 68 years of service. In the spirit of serving others, hundreds of Whataburger employees, known as Family Members, will be volunteering in the San Antonio community. Whataburger is proud to be your hometown favorite, and we look forward to 68 more.

August 6, 2018 - The DoSeum

To kick off the week, we unveiled the Whataburger Truck, a “play” food truck in the “Little Town” area of the DoSeum, where 50+ Whataburger volunteers helped prepare materials for kids art activities.

August 7, 2018 - The Brighton Center

Whataburger Family Members continued to volunteer in the San Antonio community today in celebration of our 68th birthday at the newly announced Whataburger Literacy Center at the Brighton Center.

August 8, 2018 - Communities in Schools

Today, on Whataburger’s 68th birthday, we’re proud to partner with Communities in Schools and support their mission of providing students with the tools they need to stay in school. Whataburger donated $60,000 to provide mental health coaching to CIS staff and partners while our Family Members sorted donated supplies to give students a fresh start to the new school year.

August 9, 2018 - Warriors Family Support Center

On Thursday of Orange Spirit Week, Whataburger Family Members helped serve those who serve our country. Family Members visited Fort Sam Houston to volunteer at the Warrior Family Support Center, updating walking paths and sprucing up gardens for military members and their families.

August 10, 2018 - Paloma Place

We capped off Orange Spirit Week with a very special trip to Paloma Place at the Sutherland Springs Support Center, an organization focused on assisting families impacted by tragedy. Our Family Members spent the day landscaping and painting their brand-new support center.
