It’s Official—Whataburger Is Thisclose To Opening (Okay, This Fall.)

Whataburger has a substantial number of enthusiasts in Kansas City—and one superfan. You may have heard of him? Some guy named Patrick Mahomes. With so much built-up demand, it was only a matter of time before the brand made its debut in the metro area.

Whataburger confirmed plans to open four corporate restaurants this year, with its first restaurant opening in fall 2021. The four locations are:

  • 1450 Douglas St., Lee’s Summit, Missouri 64086
  • 18811 E US 40 Highway, Independence, Missouri 64055
  • 8420 W 135th St., Overland Park, Kansas 66223
  • 905 Hwy 7, Blue Springs, Missouri 64014

A series of local events will be held to celebrate the new locations.

More Whataburger goodness is planned in 2022 with additional restaurants on tap. (Yes, please!) Plus, the company plans to hire more than 700 new employees in the Kansas City area this year. Founded more than 70 years ago, Whataburger now has more than 840 locations across 10 states, operating 24/7, 364 days a year.
