Lifelong customer shares the Whataburger tradition with his family
Whataburger customers are like family to us. We serve up warm meals and friendly smiles and love getting to know our customers. Mr. McDaniel grew up eating at our restaurants. And now, as a grandfather, he brings his entire family to dine with us weekly. In life’s busiest moments, we’re proud to bring families around the table to make memories.
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.
