Whataburger Johnson County

San Antonio-based restaurant Whataburger is set to have a busy year in Johnson County in 2022, with four new franchises planned for Overland Park and one in Olathe, all expected to open by the summer.

Though the Kansas City metro officially has its first Whataburger, there is still much more Johnson Countians can look forward to from the restaurant chain at the start of the new year.

In November, Whataburger opened its first local franchise in Lee’s Summit, Mo., an event greeted by large crowds and long car lines.
