It looks like Raleighites can look forward to dipping their fries into Whataburger Fancy Ketchup sooner than later.
The iconic orange-and-white-striped restaurant plans to expand along the I-85 corridor with South Carolina’s first stores opening next year in Greenville, Anderson, and Spartanburg.
“I get the honor of bringing Whataburger to the Carolinas, to Atlanta, to Charlotte, to Raleigh, and to many other communities,” said Nelson to the Post and Courier.
A spokesperson for Whataburger did not have news to share with RALtoday.
The chain operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and plans to employ around 100 people per restaurant.
In case you aren’t familiar with the hamburger haven out of The Lone Star State, the restaurant has been flipping patties since 1950 and is known for its original A-frame structures, specialty products + burgers, and fan-favorite late night breakfast.
Can’t wait until 2025 to try them out? The closest locations opening next year will be in Irmo and Lexington, SC, which is approx. 3.5 hours from downtown Raleigh.
