Nashville-Area Welcomes a Fourth Whataburger with Murfreesboro Opening on Monday

New restaurant will open with drive-thru service only

The fourth Nashville-area Whataburger is making its way to Murfreesboro as it gears up to start serving guests at 1835 Old Fort Parkway, beginning at 11 a.m. on Monday, August 29.

The restaurant will open with drive-thru service only, with plans to roll out additional service options, including dining room access, ordering via the Whataburger App and Whataburger.com, curbside and delivery in the coming weeks.

“Our dedicated team of Family Members is hard at work training and eager to deliver our extensive menu of bold flavors, made to order, fresh and hot with a side of extraordinary hospitality,” said Operating Partner Jon Polito. “For the time being, we look forward to offering our friends in the Murfreesboro community the great Whataburger experience from the most convenient spot around – their vehicle.”

Once the restaurant opens it dining room and app and online ordering, Whataburger will celebrate its grand opening by welcoming guests inside to be served by its 175 local employees, called Family Members.

The new restaurant’s design pays respect to Whataburger’s storied history while looking to the future with forward-thinking features, including an open-concept dining room and double drive-thru lanes. Interior details include custom wall art featuring area landmarks.

With an additional six confirmed locations to open by the end of 2023, Whataburger is positioned to have a significant economic impact in Middle Tennessee.

Whataburger Family Members are paid weekly and have access to flexible schedules (open 24/7). All employees participate in a robust training program that puts them on track for career advancement. Managers have the potential to earn up to $60,000 a year, based on both market and performance. Operating Partners earn an average of six figures or more, including bonuses of up to 150 percent of their target incentive. Both Operating Partner and Manager positions receive competitive health, dental and vision benefits, paid vacation and 401(k) benefits.
