Whataburger breaks ground on Scottsboro restuarant

Closest location yet to Chattanooga for southwest fast food chain

SCOTTSBORO, Alabama (WDEF) – A new fast food chain is debuting in the Tennessee Valley.

Whataburger broke ground on Thursday for a new location in Scottsboro, Alabama, the closest one yet to Chattanooga.

The Texas chain has been moving east for years.

There are now locations in Huntsville and Nashville, but none further east.

Operator John T. Reno of MWB Restaurants says “We’re a step above a typical fast food, or quick service restaurant. And we take pride in what we do. We’re a people first company so we need to make sure that we hire the best talent that we can possible, we try to create cultures that keep them around. It’s a little different than a traditional model, and of course, we serve amazing food.”

The restaurant will open next May with 100 team members.
