Whataburger has announced it’s offering a freebie for customers this Saturday in honor of its 65th birthday.
It was 65 years ago Saturday that founder Harmon Dobson opened his first Whataburger on Ayers Street in Corpus Christi, unleashing one of the state’s most iconic and enduring brands.
Whataburger will give everyone a free Whatasize (large) upgrade on meals Saturday, August 8 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Rob Rodriguez, Senior Vice President of Operations for Whataburger, said Thursday that it’s a thank you to the chain’s loyal customers.
“Today, we’re a little bigger and we offer a few more menu items, but all of us remain committed to taking care of the values Mr. Dobson, his wife Grace, their children and all our more than 34,000 family members have held so dear for 65 years and counting,” Rodriguez said in a statement.
