Whataburger fan makes things right with the orange-and-white, returns 150+ table tents before wedding

"It was time to get my life straight before I get married."

After taking an inventory of numerous orange-and-white-striped plastic table tents he had…acquired…from a lifetime love of Whataburger, Joseph Mora decided to come clean – and return his table tent collection to his local Whataburger in La Vernia, Texas.

Mora, 23, is about to tie the knot, and decided he needed to come clean. “It was time to get my life straight before I get married.”

Mora placed all 150+ table tents into a plastic Walmart bag (we hope it was recycled after buying some of his favorite condiments) and handed the bundle over to a Whataburger Family Member who was equal parts awe (“Are these all yours?”) and grateful for the bounty. 

To thank him for his sacrifice and congratulate him on his upcoming marriage, Whataburger is sending him some gear to help soften the blow of losing his orange-and-white table tent collection.

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.
