Whataburger enthusiasts, your next batch of fast-food merchandise is available.
To celebrate the chain’s 70th anniversary, the burger joint teamed up with the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks (who play in Whataburger Field) to release limited edition Texas-shaped Whataburger logo’d merch on the Hooks’ online team store.
The design features the Whataburger logo that appears to have been cut up with a Texas-shaped cookie cutter.
Adding some flavor to our lineup.
Introducing the Celebrate Whataburger Collection, honoring the 70th anniversary of the storied restaurant that started right here in Corpus Christi.

The first Whataburger opened in Corpus Christi on Aug. 8, 1950. They’ve been slinging burgers and losing order number tents ever since.
The new offerings are a cool homage to Whataburger’s Texas roots, but it won’t make us forget that the company is now majority owned by a Chicago-based investment firm. They are a welcomed peace offering, however.
A vintage orange T-shirt with the new logo and navy blue shirt are both on pre-order, but you can get your hands on hats, cups and even face masks with the limited logo today (digitally at least, shipping takes up to three weeks ).
