CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — As if we needed a special day to celebrate our love for Whataburger.
Nonetheless, the popular fast-food restaurant, which was founded in Corpus Christi in 1950, has proclaimed August 8 “National Whataburger Day” to celebrate 73 years of business.
The company will celebrate the day with free Whataburgers, VIP customer experiences and will even wipe out $73,000 in school lunch debt, $1,000 for every year they have been serving customers.
“At Whataburger, we believe hunger should never be an obstacle to a student’s academic success or prevent them from reaching their dreams,” the company said in a statement.
To get a free Whataburger, you must be signed up for Whataburger Rewards. Free burgers will be given to rewards members on August 7 and 8.
And listen up, table tent collectors: Whataburger will be be handing out limited quantities of inaugural National Whataburger Day table tents to customers who visit the restaurant on the special day. You can also snag a special table tent with any order at the online Whatastore.
The company is asking that fans show their love by posting their favorite Whataburger moments using the hashtag #NationalWhataburgerDay on social media.
