Quinlan, Texas on the southern edge of Hunt County has come into its own with the groundbreaking of Whataburger number 656 (just guessing here, folks) restaurant in Texas. From just one store in Corpus Christi in 1950 there are now over 790 stores nationwide.
The team from regional headquarters braved the threat of rain to break ground at 8851 Highway 34 North for the new store. Many sages have observed that once a town has all of the Big Four hamburger chains then it is on its way to greatness. Greatness became a reality today with the addition of Whataburger to McDonald’s, Dairy Queen, and Sonic. Perhaps one of the really big gas stations will be next.
