A timeline for when the restaurants will open is not known at this time.

Whataburger to-go bag

It is no secret Colorado is a popular destination for Texans looking for work or play.

Whataburger is a national chain that opened in 1950 as a roadside stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. The company was family-owned and operated out of San Antonio, Texas until it was sold to Chicago-based firm BDT Captial Partners.

You can find locations across Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

The chain won't be the only new burger joint getting attention in Colorado Springs. In-N-Out burger opened locations in Colorado Springs and Aurora last fall, leading to hours-long wait times. News 5 is told that the restaurant will open later this year.
