NEW WHATABURGER AND STARBUCKS COMING TO TUSCALOOSA
By WVUA 23 Student Reporter Madison MacLean
Whataburger fans have been begging for a restaurant in Tuscaloosa for years, but now they’re getting their wish.
“Beyond excited,” said fan Nicholas Heady. “I’ve been tricked every single year. Every year someone says it’s going to be in Tuscaloosa, but it’s crazy that there’s actually going to be one.”
But Whataburger isn’t the only new fast food spot coming to down, as Starbucks is building two new standalone stores.
Whataburger and one Starbucks will be at Highway 69 and Skyland Boulevard, near Cobb Hollywood 16 Cinemas. The other Starbucks, which will feature a drive-thru window, will be at McFarland Boulevard and 15th Street, near CVS Pharmacy.
