As a gift from “his first home to his second home,” Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has officially opened his first Whataburger franchise.

If you live in the greatest Kansas City region (or just feel like a good road trip for some delicious fast food), you might want to head out now to get in line for what will undoubtedly be a very busy opening day for the newest Whataburger location in the area. That’s because this Whataburger franchise is the first one owned by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

To be clear, the Whataburger location scheduled to open today at 11:00 a.m. C.T. on 10780 Parallel Parkway in Kansas City, Kansas isn’t exclusively owned by Mahomes. He’s part of a restaurant ownership group called KMO Burger, and the group has big plans for the future with the expansion into 30 total Whataburger locations on a seven-year timeline. Per a press release:

"“As part of KMO Burger, I am excited our team is opening our first location in Kansas City,” said Mahomes. “It’s great to bring a gift from my first home to my second home.”"

Whataburger has locations already up and running in the region but none are owned by KMO Burger as of yet. KMO Burger group plans to open four more this year and four more in 2023.

Mahomes first pined for a Whataburger location in the region back in 2018, his first year as the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. It was that very season that his presence ignited the offense to new levels, and the team hosted their first of four consecutive AFC Championship games.

If you want to truly cash in on opening day, the store announced they are giving away gift baskets to the first couple of customers through the drive-thru and dine-in experiences with gift baskets that include free Whataburger for a year.
