About Whataburger Restaurants, LLC
Whataburger® began in 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened a tiny burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. From day one, he believed that valuing his employees would ensure the success of the company. He was right! That two-man burger stand has grown to over 700 Whataburger locations across 10 states. We are still family-owned and operated and everyone who works at Whataburger is considered a Family Member. We hire people we believe in, we train them for success and we help them build careers that last.
