Highway Hero

When their bus broke down, these students needed a hero. And some chicken strips.

For high school students, there’s nothing more exciting than heading to the beach for a spring break trip with your friends. Bags are packed, flip flops and sunglasses are donned, and you’re ready to hit the road … until all that excitement comes to a slow rolling stop on the side of the highway.

That’s what happened to a youth group from Grand Prairie, Texas, whose bus broke down on their way to South Padre Island, dooming them to hours of boredom (and hunger) on the side of the road.

Until a quick-thinking group leader pulled up the Whataburger app, that is. And a dedicated Whataburger manager made a special delivery to save the day.

Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio with more than 900 locations across its 14-state footprint and sales of more than $3 billion annually. Whataburger is a 2022 Top Workplaces winner. The brand has more than 50,000 Family Members (employees) and more than 60 million customers who like to customize their Whataburgers just like they like it.
