For as long as we've been cooking up #1s, Whataburger has been supporting the communities we serve through community giving, volunteerism and sponsorships. The first Whataburger sponsorship? A 1950's little league team out of Corpus Christi, Texas. Their uniforms were the first to don Whataburger's name and the kids were fed burgers and shakes after every game by Whataburger founder, Harmon Dobson, himself.
That was over 70 years ago.
Today, Whataburger is proud to sponsor over 100 professional, minor league, collegiate, high school and local sports teams and entertainment events across our 14-state footprint. While our roster may have grown, Whataburger's mission to give back to our communities has remained. Together with our sponsorship partners, Whataburger supports food drives, student reading programs, community events and charitable programs under the umbrella of Whataburger Feeding Student Success—the company's signature program focusing community giving at the intersection of food insecurity and education.
