June 29, 2015 -- As of 3 p.m. today, Whataburger proves opposites really do attract with the release of the new Sweet & Spicy Bacon Burger, available now for a limited time. With the ideal balance of flavors, Whataburger’s new Sweet & Spicy Bacon Burger is a unique combination, one that fans have not tasted before.
The burger features two 100-percent beef patties, bacon, grilled onions, Monterey Jack and American Cheese and Whataburger’s Original Mustard – plus Whataburger’s new Sweet & Spicy Pepper Sauce – all served on a five-inch toasted bun.
“When we create a new offering at Whataburger, we look for unique ingredients that will give our customers more flavorful options,” said Whataburger Vice President of Marketing and Innovation Rich Scheffler. “When we tasted this burger, we knew we had something truly special and we think customers are going to love the blend of sweet, savory and heat from this new flavorful burger.”
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.
