Whataburger Launches Free Virtual Leadership Conference April 21

[San Antonio, April 8, 2021] - Ready for a new perspective on your career? Need help
reframing your future? It’s been a tough couple of years, and Whataburger is hosting a free
virtual leadership conference on April 21 to offer tips, tools and advice from some heavy hitters
to help inspire your career journey … no travel required.

Register at for the event, featuring former military turned NBA all-star David
Robinson; award-winning chef, restaurateur, author and TV personality Aarón Sánchez; and
Pivot Method founder, international speaker, podcast host, and author, Jenny Blake. During the
event, you can sign up for a real-time interview with Whataburger or request free career advice
via chat.

The celebrity speakers and featured Whataburger leaders all have compelling stories about
pivoting their careers. They tell stories about times of doubt and uncertainty, how they found the
inspiration to move forward and the skills and resources they used to find their dream career --
sometimes in unexpected places.

Pivot-You is part of Whataburger’s larger employee recruitment campaign to hire more than
50,000 employees with an emphasis on finding business leaders to run its multi-million-dollar
restaurants across its 14-state footprint.

“We know it’s been a struggle out there. Because of that, we wanted to create a free, easy way to
reignite people’s self-confidence and help leaders pivot their talent to a new career or consider a
completely different industry,” said Rob Rodriguez, Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer of Whataburger. “We know that leaders in the military, education, hospitality
and many other industries have amazing talent and are looking for a place to inspire teams and
make a difference. We want them to find a career that fuels their purpose, and we believe
Whataburger could be the home they’re searching for.”

This year, Whataburger is opening 37 new locations, across 14 markets, including Phoenix,
Austin, Dallas, Jacksonville, Pensacola, Panama City, and Tallahassee -- and in new markets
Kansas City, Nashville and Colorado Springs.

“There truly is no better time to be at Whataburger. Coming off the best year in our 70+ year
history, we are excited to expand our invaluable team of Family Members and leadership,” said
Ed Nelson, President and CEO of Whataburger. “We offer flexible schedules to fit your life, the
potential to earn six figures, great benefits and an opportunity to be a true leader in your
community through Whataburger resources. As an Operating Partner or Manager, not only do
you run a multi-million-dollar business, you also make a difference in the lives of your team and
all the people in your Whataburger neighborhood.”
