I ate at Whataburger over the weekend when I was at Rocklahoma. I looked at my burger and fries and asked myself..."When will we have you in Wichita?" There are Whataburger locations as close as Stillwater and Edmond, Oklahoma. I noticed that they even have them in Northwest Arkansas. How long will it be till we get them in Kansas? Well, I reached out to the corporate office in San Antonio, TX and asked if they had plans on coming to Wichita in the near future. The person that I spoke to said they've received numerous calls about Wichita. He said "right now the company has been focused on building locations to the east." They recently opened locations in Northwest Arkansas. I let him know that Wichita would love and support a Whataburger location. He said that he "couldn't confirm or nor deny any plans to move north into Kansas." He simply said that the focus has been to the east right now.
Would you like to see Whataburger in Wichita? You can reach out to Whataburger's Corporate Office. That's what I did. Let's see if we can get a location in Doo-Dah! Who's with me?
The Story of Whataburger (from Whataburger website)
Over six decades ago, an adventurous and determined entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson had a bold idea: to serve a burger so big that it took two hands to hold, and so good that after a single bite customers couldn't help but exclaim, “What a burger!” He named his humble burger stand, located on Ayers Street in Corpus Christi, Texas, “Whataburger.”
Today, our founder's original vision still inspires everything we do. We're still family owned and operated. Each and every Whataburger® is still made to order—when it's ordered. We still use 100% pure beef and serve it on a big, toasted five-inch bun. We still greet our customers with a smile 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And while we now serve hot, fresh food at more than 800 Whataburgers across the country, that burger stand in Corpus Christi is never far from our hearts.
