Whataburger announces second round of corporate layoffs

San Antonio based fast food burger giant Whataburger had announced a second round of layoffs that affects furloughed employees that were slated to return to work on July 21st. Some of those employees had been let go by the company.

“It’s been a tough year all around. We are grateful to have many of our furloughed Family Members coming back to work. At the same time, it’s difficult to say goodbye to some of our other talented Family Members,” said Ed Nelson, president of Whataburger. “I’m hopeful, though, that our customers can see the focus we’ve placed on our restaurants. We’re continuing to hire restaurant Family Members at every level as our dining rooms start to open again. We hope you’ll find comfort in our fresh burgers and Family Member hospitality.”

In April, Whataburger had conducted its first round of layoffs and furloughs after Texas shutting down for the COVID-19 pandemic.
