Whataburger is moving forward with plans to open multiple restaurants across Middle Tennessee including one in Sumner County.
The popular burger chain is looking to hire a general manager for an unannounced Gallatin location, according to an online job listing posted in late October. The company is also conducting similar job searches in Hermitage, Lebanon, Madison and Murfreesboro.
The San Antonio-based company announced its return to Tennessee earlier this month and has already submitted plans for a Nashville location on Old Hickory Boulevard.
Despite the recent job positing, city officials say they are unaware of any specific plans for Gallatin.
Founded in 1950, Whataburger has more than 830 restaurants across Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The company employs more than 43,000 workers and is ranked sixth in sales among national hamburger quick-serve restaurants.
