They compete under the Whataburger flag.
The competitors at WhataGames are in it to win it
At Whataburger we do fries, not flips; shakes, not Salchows; hamburgers, not the halfpipe.
But we do have our own hyper-intense competition where folks fight for their moment of glory on the medal stand.
It’s called WhataGames. And if you’re part of the Whataburger Family, it’s a big deal.
Every other year, Whataburger restaurants compete for a chance to attend this event, where restaurants vie for the gold medal – and thousands of dollars in prizes.
WhataGames is three days of non-stop activity for the competing teams. Restaurant teams show off their kitchen skills, and their customer service talents. Maintenance techs fix things on the fly. Everyone tests their knowledge of the company history and culture in a high-production quiz show.
And when it’s over, the winners take home $5,000. In cash. Each.
Like we said, it’s a big deal. Check out the excitement here:
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. Dobson gave his restaurant a name he hoped to hear customers say every time they took a bite of his made-to-order burgers: “What a burger!” Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, 100 percent beef burgers served on five-inch buns. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 820 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually. Visit www.whataburger.com for more information.
