Legendary fast food chain Whataburger has expanded its market into Missouri. The first Missouri Whataburger opened in Lee’s Summit earlier this week and a second location is due to open before the end of the month in Independence, MO.

There will be four more Whataburger locations open in the Kansas City area by next summer, too. This is big news for burger fans and even bigger news for people who are looking for a job — the chain plans to hire 400 employees before the end of the year and an additional 1,000 employees as the locations expand.

“We’re excited to bring our big flavors, fresh ingredients and original recipes to Kansas City,” said Whataburger Senior Area Manager Mike Garza. “We’re looking forward to growing here and being part of the community.”

If you’re headed to the area, here’s where you can find the new Whataburger locations:

  • 1450 N.E. Douglas St. in Lee’s Summit – open now
  • 18902 E. U.S. 40 Highway – open November 29
  • 8420 W 135th St, Overland Park, Kan. – open late 2021/early 2022
  • 905 Hwy 7, Blue Springs, Mo. – open early 2022
  • 1921 W Foxwood Dr, Raymore, Mo. – open summer 2022
  • 95th & Metcalf, Overland Park, Kan. – open summer 2022
