The competition coincides with the Whataburger Family Convention, which will be held this year at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. About 2,000 employees, including corporate and regional representatives, franchisees, and suppliers, are expected to attend in addition to the WhataGames finalists.
Rutledge explained the event promises intense competition over a three-day contest.
"It's so much fun to see the teams rally together when the stakes are this high," he said.
The local Whataburger store employs 37 people.
