The popular fast food chain, boasting more than 800 locations across 19 states, announced it was sold to the investment company BDT Capital Partners.
While the terms of the agreement were not immediately revealed, Whataburger says it runs more than $ 2 billion in revenue per year.
BDT Capital's holdings, which consist exclusively of family-based businesses, include minority investments in Einstein Bros. Bagels and Krispy Kreme Donuts.
Okay, I say we all chip in and buy Whataburger back. Make honey butter chicken biscuits available all day, add kolaches to the menu and change nothing else. Especially not the ketchup. https://t.co/HadutHXJ9l
