Whataburger coming to Colorado Springs – KRDO

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — It’s the burger news that Texans in Colorado Springs have been anxiously anticipating for years: Whataburger is finally planning an expansion into the Front Range.

The Gazette was the first to report the development based on a proposal submitted to the city of Colorado Springs’ planning and development office.

The location would go into the InterQuest Marketplace, which is just off of Interstate 25 on the north side of town. That means the popular Texas-based fast-food chain will be close to the popular California-based fast-food chain that just opened in late 2020, In-N-Out Burger.

According to the proposal filed on Friday, the first Colorado Springs Whataburger could open as soon as this fall.

Whataburger’s corporate office confirmed the news on Wednesday.

“Whataburger is growing, and we have more good news. It’s true we are planning to bring our iconic burgers and exceptional customer service to Colorado Springs. We’ll have more information to share in the future, but we have some great fans in Colorado Springs and we hope they’re as excited as we are.”

Whataburger, which offers quite a few options more than just burgers, first opened in 1950 in south Texas and has since expanded to hundreds of locations in 10 states.

We’re working on getting more information on the opening. Check back for updates.
