The legendary fast food chain Whataburger has expanded its market to Missouri. The first Missouri Whataburger opened at the Lee Summit earlier this week, and another venue is set to open before the end of the month in Independence, MO.

There will also be four more Whataburger locations open in the Kansas City area next summer. This is big news for burger fans and even bigger news for people looking for jobs – the chain plans to hire 400 employees before the end of the year and another 1,000 employees as the locations expand.

“We are excited to bring our great flavors, fresh ingredients and original recipes to Kansas City,” said Whataburger Senior Area Manager Mike Garza. “We look forward to growing here and being a part of the community.”

If you’re heading to the area, here’s where you can find the new Whataburger sites:

  • 1450 NE Douglas St. in Lees Summit – open now
  • 18902 EUS 40 Highway – open November 29th
  • 8420 W 135th St, Overland Park, Kan. – open late 2021 / early 2022
