KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Whataburger served more than 3,500 burgers and sandwiches at its new Lee's Summit location in its first 24 hours of business.

It's the first of several planned locations across the Kansas City area.

The restaurant opened Monday at 11 a.m., and served 1,500 customers over the course of the day, the company said.

Whataburger said that number of patrons is above average for an opening of one of its stores.

Those 1,500 customers ordered the following breakdown of food:

  • 1,300 double meat Whataburgers
  • 333 triple meat Whataburgers
  • 304 jalapeno and cheese Whataburgers
  • 1,348 Whataburgers
  • 245 spicy chicken sandwiches.

A timelapse video provided by Whataburger shows the restaurant remained busy through the night, perhaps prompting the Lee's Summit Police Department's move to reroute traffic.
