One of the most infamous fast food restaurants that people love to eat at is coming one step closer to the Tri-State!

Soon, folks in the Tri-State area won't have to travel to Alabama, Texas, and Arkansas to enjoy the San Antonio-based food chain, Whataburger. In fact, the trip will be much shorter, as   Whataburger announced earlier this year that it is expanding its market into Missouri, Kansas, and Tennessee. According to a recent article by the Nashville Post, Wataburger will be making its way to Music City!

The Nashville Post says that Whataburger is looking to open a location at 5055 Old Hickory Blvd. in Hermitage, according to a document submitted to Metro.

For years, I have always heard people say "You gotta try Whataburger", "Whataburger is so good", "we need a Whataburger closer to the area." Heck, the first time that I even heard of Whataburger was a result of something that Stone Cold Steve Austin said:

That's how I knew Whataburger must be great, because Stone Cold said so! If what he, along with what everyone has told me about the fast food chain is true, I am sure that I will fall in love. Knowing that Whataburger will be closer than ever, I believe that I will finally get to try it for the first time soon.

According to their press release, Whataburger is building 35 restaurants (25 company and 10 franchise) in 2021. This is the first time in 20 years that they have partnered with new franchisees. Who knows, this expansion might not be the last.

There's hope that Whataburger will make it's way to Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana. You certainly couldn't rule it out. What we do know for sure is that we have one more reason to make a weekend road trip to Nashville now.
