VIDEO: Miss Connie Never Missed a Monday

The story of one very special team member serving up burgers and smiles for nearly 50 years

What makes Team Member Connie Claxton so darn special? Maybe it’s the nearly 50 years she’s been serving Whataburger customers. Perhaps it’s in her ability to courageously battle cancer without losing her infectious smile and energy. We’ll leave it up to you to decide. We’re just plain thankful she’s a part of our team.

Check out her inspiring story.


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.
