Whataburger has arrived in KC area — here’s when it plans to open 5 Johnson County franchises


San Antonio-based restaurant Whataburger is set to open five Johnson County locations, four in Overland Park and one in Olathe, by Summer 2022. The location at 8420 W. 135th St. in Overland Park is set to open as early as late this year. Image via Whataburger Facebook.

The Kansas City metro finally has a Whataburger, which opened its first local franchise in Lee’s Summit this week to crowds and snaking lines of cars.

When can Johnson Countians expect the same? Maybe sooner rather than later.
