Oh no! I’ve always loved Whataburger. I hope this doesn’t change the chain. It’s the only place you could get whole wheat buns, spicy ketchup before other folks caught on.

You don’t get it the reason what a burger was good quality was because it wasn’t that big of a business like McDonald’s or others chains of fast food so honestly if you wanted to try good quality burgers you should have came to Texas before it was bought out because the quality is about to drop so much that the company will go out of business

Next is a slow family fade, cheaper ingredients, lower wages and poor customer service. I’ll give it a year or 2 before they start closing less desirable locations. Sorry, I won’t support this. Ok

NOTHING original survives feckless paper shufflers who are NEVER actually interested in running businesses, but more interested in fictitious inflated market caps. If you want to destroy your brand, this is what you do. But hey, the original owners get to retire happy, before their time's up. good for them, regardless.
