Last year, it was announced that Whataburger was coming to Wichita, KS. The timeline they gave was in the next seven years. There wasn’t anything specific.
But good news came this morning when KMO Burger, the franchisee, announced they were hoping to open the first of many Whataburger locations in Wichita by 2024. They are currently scouting areas of town to open their stores.
As you may recall in the original press release, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, is part of an investor group that will bring multiple Whataburgers to Wichita.
No word yet on a specific location, but you can almost bet there will be one in northwest and northeast Wichita.
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 which I know means nothing.
