was the founder of WHATABURGER,INC. He started his first establishment
in 1950 as a large "wooden box" stand. Today the distinctive
orange and white WHATABURGER Restaurants can be found in seven Southwest
States from Arizona to Texas
to Mexico. Sadly, Harmon Dobson
died in an aircraft accident in 1967 and did not live to see his hamburger
empire expand to over 250 locations.
Since 1999 this
sculpture has stood in front of the WHATABURGER "Flagship"
Restaurant on the bayfront of Corpus Christi, Texas.
