San Antonio (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

As part of Whataburger’s ongoing commitment to deliver a “What a burger!” experience to customers every time, 100 Whataburger restaurants have emerged as semifinalists in the company’s “WhataGames” competition, a unique and spirited contest designed to test the skills of Whataburger team members in three categories: operations, corporate history and customer service.

The teams, who beat out their competitors among Whataburger’s more than 740 restaurants in 10 states, will continue to prove their skills through a series of elimination rounds to earn one of the 21 coveted spots at the WhataGames Finals in Dallas in April 2013. Finalists will compete in three days of high-intensity competition for the Gold Medal and the esteemed title of WhataGames 2013 Champion, as well as $165,000 in cash prizes.

“At Whataburger, we call our employees Family Members, and the biennial WhataGames is another great example of how we truly are a family and invest in each other,” said Clifton Rutledge, chief operating officer of Whataburger Restaurants LLC. “It also has proven to be very successful as a training program, allowing our Family Members to become the best they can be in a really unique and exciting way. The Family Members who compete in WhataGames take their preparation very seriously, but ultimately it’s just so much fun. We’re very proud of these 100 semifinalist teams and look forward to finding out who advances to the finals.”

WhataGames finals are the featured event during the Whataburger Family Convention, which will be held at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. The games were created in 1996 as a training exercise for operations to better serve customers. The first event hosted less than 500 people, and has grown steadily to more than 2,000 Whataburger team members. The convention is a family occasion, hosting Whataburger corporate and regional representatives, franchisees and suppliers, along with the WhataGames national finalists.
