Construction recently began at Lakeland Plaza for the new Whataburger location.
According to officials from Whataburger, the “restaurant in Cumming is under construction with a projected opening date in late [spring] 2023.”
Fans of the chain might remember the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approving a conditional use permit for the brand to “conduct around-the-clock business in a 3,189-square-foot building” at a meeting on Oct. 21, 2021.
The location will also feature 33 parking spaces for hungry customers.
“This actually will be a … positive addition to not only [Lakeland Plaza], but as well as to the county,” said District 1 Commissioner Molly Cooper at the meeting, and she expressed that she “[welcomed] the business.”
