According to the company, the acquisition will take place later this summer. BDT Capital Partners will work with existing Whataburger leadership to develop a strategy for long-term growth.
“As the brand embarks on a growth and expansion plan, we decided the time was right to promote new leadership to carry the company forward,” stated Whataburger President/CEO Preston Atkinson, in a recent press release. “This leadership team has the right combination of Whataburger core values, strategic vision and people-centered leadership to take us into the future.”
The company will remain headquartered in San Antonio, and the Dobson Family, who founded the company in 1950, will retain minority ownership.
