Whataburger To Open Second Colorado Location This Week
Whataburger lovers, this one's for you.
Fans of the famed Texas-based burger chain were delighted to find out on Thursday (Sept. 22) that a new Whataburger location is set to open just before the end of the month here in Colorado.
Back in February - on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 11 a.m., to be exact - the first and only (but not for long) Whataburger in Colorado officially opened its doors and immediately began serving a hungry, anxious crowd of Coloradans, hundreds of whom seemed more determined than ever to get their fill of Colorado's latest fast-food sensation.
History is expected to repeat itself at Colorado's new Whataburger location during its grand opening this week (minus the sub-zero temps... hopefully).
Where Is Colorado's Newest Whataburger Located?
According to the burger chain's website, Whataburger fans in Colorado, particularly those down in the Springs, will have a new way to curb their "whata-cravings" beginning Thursday, Sept. 27, when Whataburger's newest location officially opens at 6140 Dublin Blvd in Colorado Springs.
Sure, for us in Nothern Coloradans, this means we'll still have to travel a little further to curb our Whataburger cravings... but who doesn't love a good road trip?
"With Operating Partner Irving De La Cruz and Director of Operations Armando Alvarez at the helm, the Whataburger team of 180 local employees, who we call Family Members, is ready to serve the community 24/7 through the dining room and the drive-thru. Additional services, such as delivery and online ordering via the Whataburger App and Whataburger.com, will be available in the coming weeks.", a press release written in regards to the new Colorado restaurant opening via Whataburger's website reads.
