Anyone else hungry for a burger? Good news for Hoover residents—a new Whataburger is coming to the former Pier 1 location across from the Riverchase Galleria in Spring 2022. Keep reading for the delish deets.

According to the Birmingham Business Journal, Whataburger leased the former Pier 1 location across from the Galleria and will be opening its new restaurant in Spring 2022. This isn’t your typical Whataburger, though. This location is set to be a prototype of their refreshed design. The coolest part—the Hoover Whataburger will be the first in the country to feature the new design. A win for Hoover (and hamburger lovers everywhere).

Along with a menu of burgers, fries and shakes (one chocolate shake for me, please), this new Whataburger will bring more jobs to Hoover.

“Hoover is excited to welcome its first Whataburger restaurant to the City. The chain is a popular one with a large, dedicated following and it will be a great addition to our commercial corridor. Even more exciting is that the Hoover Whataburger will feature the restaurant’s new, modern design, adding a fresh feel to an already popular retail area.”

Melanie Posey-Joseph, City of Hoover, Public Information Officer

Get ready to see even more Whataburgers popping up across Alabama. The company has plans for major growth across our state, especially metro Birmingham.
