The KMO Burger? REALLY?

I have heard the further you get from Texas the worst Whataburger gets. I have a Phoenix experience that proves it

IMHO, since being bought out by BDT Capital Partners, which is based in Chicago, Whataburger hasn’t been as good as they used to be.

It hasn’t been as good because that’s what the gonorrhea of the financial world, private equity, does. Buy a popular brand, rapid expansion, massive cost cutting, relying on the goodwill previous owners built up, run it into the ground, and finally sell for scrap.

If a company sells out to private equity ight is either in serious financial trouble and it’s excepting a brief extension on it’s life span at the expense of it’s soul. Or in the case of Whataburger they are pulling a cash grab and telling everyone else to cram a barbed wire phallus where the sun doesn’t shine.


I think you forgot saddle the newly-bought company with massive debt. And charge massive “management” fees before running the business into the ground.

They are in Tucson.

Strictly average. In-and-Out easily better. And others, such as Five Guys.

Nothing lasts forever. Including Burgers.
