Kansas gets its first Whataburger in Overland Park, will Wichita be next?

Whataburger pumped out a press release announcing their entry in to Kansas. Unfortunately, it won’t be Wichita. Overland Park will be getting the state’s first Whataburger that is expected to open in fall 2021. Three other locations will also open in Missouri:

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

According to the press release, more Whataburgers will be coming to the Kansas City area. I hope the term “area” focuses on a segment 2-3 hours away from Kansas City. The company plans to release information on 2022 growth plans later 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. Whataburger is best known for its signature, fresh-never-frozen beef burgers – available 24 hours a day along, spicy ketchup and its Wichita By E.B. Seal of Approval.

  1. I think name recognition is the only thing that brought it to Northern Kansas. Wichita won’t see it until it is established in the KC area. So another 3-5 years. Typical. People will have forgotten about them by then. Or felt blited.
