Chicago-based BDT Capital Partners said Friday it’s agreed to acquire a majority stake in Whataburger.
The burger chain will remain headquartered in San Antonio, and the groups will “begin exploring expansion plans,” they said in a statement.
Whataburger’s founders, the Dobson family, will keep a minority position in the company. President and CEO Preston Atkinson and Chairman Tom Dobson will retain their seats on the board but retire from daily operations.

Or maybe just a new beginning....

News of the sale to Chicago-based BDP capital Partners prompted dismay from its fans, including the Houston Texans defensive end, who tweeted his proposal.

Watt tweeted, “Ok, 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.”
