The San Antonio-based burger chain opened the largest number of new restaurants in its history last year and now operates more than 1,000 restaurants.

The location in Austin, Tex., is cashless and seatless and without a traditional drive-thru. Customers order via mobile app or kiosk.

Debbie Stroud, who also spent 27 years with McDonald's, will take over operations at the 900-unit Whataburger.

She has more than 30 years of human resources experience, most recently with True Food Kitchen.

Elena Kraus takes over for the retiring Michael Gibbs at the 880-unit burger chain.

Patrick Mahomes is part of an investor-led franchise group that plans to grow the quick-service burger brand in Kansas and Missouri.

The regional burger chain is also revamping its compensation plans to raise unit managers' potential pay above $100,000.

The chain’s president took the helm as the chain expands and plans to start franchising.

Sweets, sips and toasty sandwiches are the top menu choices.
