Whataburger Selected as Top Workplace for 2013

Company October 28, 2013 San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – Oct. 28, 2013 – Whataburger Restaurants LLC is proud to announce its selection as a San Antonio Express-News Top Workplace for 2013. The company was nominated by its employees and assessed in areas such as the company’s leadership, its values and future, company communication, and the company’s working atmosphere and environment.

The winners were officially announced Oct. 22 at an awards luncheon held at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio and published in the Oct. 27 Top Workplaces special section of the San Antonio Express-News.

“It’s an honor to be named a Top Workplace because it comes directly from Whataburger employees, who we call Family Members,” said Whataburger Vice President of Human Resources Marianne Dowdy. “From our restaurant operations to Home Office support teams, we take pride in our work, take care of each other and love serving our customers.”

Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. From day one, Harmon Dobson believed valuing his employees would ensure the success of the company, and that still holds true today. Whataburger hires people it believes in, trains them for success and helps them build careers that last.

The family-owned company has grown to more than 25,000 employees with more than 750 locations in 10 states, and still prides itself on fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly service. Whataburger is now headquartered in San Antonio, Texas with sales of more than $1 billion annually.

This is the fifth year for the San Antonio Express-News to team up with WorkplaceDynamics, an independent research firm, to recognize the best places to work in the San Antonio area. Winning employers are chosen through employee surveys on a variety of workplace topics, and survey results are verified by an independent organization.
