Couple Traveling to all 722 Whataburgers will be passing through Tucson



Have you heard about the record-setting road trip involving two retired Air Force sergeants, 10 states, 1.8 million square miles and a whole lotta Whataburger?  Today, Karl and Carol Hoepfner, the Air Force sergeants, will resume the road trip they began in May with a goal of visiting all 722 Whataburger locations (and counting) and they will be passing through Tucson this week.

Since the two are both over 70 years old, they do rest between “legs” (and doubles with cheese).  The couple has been on R&R for a month, but embark today on the next leg of their Whataburger-fueled journey, flying from Corpus Christi, Texas to Tucson where they will rent a car to visit 57 locations in Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas on their way back home to the city by the bay.  At the end of their trip they’ll have visited 471 restaurants – more than halfway to their goal!

They’ll be traveling October 24 through November 6, and judging from past visits, they’ll receive a heroes’ welcome too. The couple has a storage shed full of Whata-goodies they’ve received from Whataburger staff while traveling, that they intend to auction in benefit the homeless, at the end of their journey.

Why the trip? The Hoepfner’s were named Whataburger’s Biggest Fans in April, a title that won them more than $10,000 in Whataburger gift cards and merchandise -- but the road trip was their idea.
