You can breathe a sigh of relief, Whataburger lovers. A story has been circulating on social media that claims that the beloved burger business will be shutting its doors. But it’s all going to be okay. Earlier today, the chain confirmed on Facebook that the story is a hoax. Your burgers are safe.
An article is being circulated stating that Whataburger will be closing all stores. This article is a hoax, and we aren’t going anywhere.
Luckily, they “aren’t going anywhere.” Whew.
For better or worse, the popular Texas burger chain has been no stranger to attention on social. Earlier this year, CBS Austin exposed a fake coupon that was making its way across the internet.
Likewise, Whataburger has also been shown lots of love through social media. For example, this guy went viral thanks to his tribute to their delicious Honey Butter Chicken). Dozens of hungry Twitter users also dreamt up some unique poems to try and win a year’s worth of free food.
