Patrick Mahomes is a hero in Kansas City, but residents will have a new reason to love him soon enough. He is a fan of food along with football and the QB is bringing a big franchise to the Chief’s home city.

Steinberg Sports tweeted out that Mahomes is bringing in a Whataburger restaurant to Kansas City. Those franchises are very popular in Los Angeles, but are seldom seen elsewhere. Naturally, this move took a bit of finessing.

Lines of cars jammed the streets to get their hands on a Whataburger in Kansas City. Mahomes was a big part of making is all come together as he partnered with the KMO Burger Group.

Mahomes was thrilled to get some public interest in his new venture. He tweeted out in reply: “Let’s go!” Whataburger is a $2.698 billion business, so this is a big deal indeed.

There are now five Whataburgers in the KC area, an impressive accomplishment. It is also going to be a guaranteed revenue driver as people will undoubtedly come from far and wide to get their teeth around one of those famous burgers.

We’ll have to see what’s next for Mahomes, but he obviously has a very savvy business mind. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more!

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
