A Great Company, a Great Burger!
Those simple ideas have guided us through more than 65 years of Whataburger® history. From day one, our founder, Harmon Dobson, believed that valuing his employees would ensure the success of the company, and he was right. What was once a two-man burger stand has now grown to over 790 Whataburger® locations.
We started way back in 1950 when an adventurous and determined entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson opened up the world’s first Whataburger® on Ayers Street in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had a simple goal, to serve a burger so big that it took two hands to hold and so good that with one bite customers would say, “What a burger!” He succeeded on both accounts and turned that one little burger stand into a legend known throughout Texas and the South.
Today, each and every Whataburger® is made to order, right when it’s ordered. And they’re still made with 100% pure American beef and served on a big toasted five-inch bun with all ‘the extras’ to suit your taste. Grilled jalapenos, extra bacon, three slices of cheese, no tomatoes, extra pickles? No problem, your Whataburger® will be made just like you like it 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
More than half a century later, road-trippers and hometown folks alike continue gathering under the big orange and white roofs for the fresh made to order burgers and friendly service with Harmon’s son, Tom, at the company helm.
Whataburger® still remains family-owned and operated with our employees even referred to as Family Members. We hire people we believe in, we train them for success and we help them build careers that last.
With more than 790 Whataburger® restaurants across 10 states -- Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia -- we are proud to be able to say we employ over 34,000 Family Members. Even with the passing of over 65 years, it is the privilege and promise of each and every one of our Family Members to uphold the tradition that Harmon began those many years ago.
Our Family Members bring to the company a wide variety of unique talents, ideas and perspectives. Each individual helps us to attract and maintain a workforce that is inclusive to our varying backgrounds and opinions. Our goal is to create an environment that draws upon the strength of each individual so we can consistently exceed customers' expectations.
