Community Outreach
Whataburger will provide fresh produce to the over 23.5 million people currently living in food deserts through our mobile WHATAWHEELS trucks.

It’s true, we make delicious burgers. But we also know we have the materials and platform to make real, tangible and shareable change.

TikTok Content
Why TikTok? 
  • Emphasizes short-form video content, easy to use and democratized virality.
  • Feeds on Gen Z’s appeal for entrepreneurship and creation.
  • Shows a place where you can be yourself and go viral for it.

Through TikTok, we’ll use diverse nutrition-influencer powerhouses to educate our socially conscious ‘Zellenial’ audience on the presence of food deserts & how fresh food is missing from so many lives in our nation, especially in this COVID stricken world.

TikTok users will be shown our truck’s journey around the US & watch road-trip style vlogs showing the hidden struggles of living in an area without access to fresh, nutritious food.

Throughout the initiative, more educational material will be released as well as coverage on site at the truck. 

All of this content leads to our Tender Two-Step dance challenge. For every participant, Whataburger will donate the cost of our chicken tender meal to food banks around the country. Entries are counted through the use of the hashtag #TenderTwoStep.
