Flower Mound is getting its first Whataburger location in the town’s more than 60-year history.

On Monday, the Flower Mound Town Council approved a zoning ordinance to modify conceptual plans and elevations for the construction of two fast-food restaurants — a Whataburger and a Slim Chickens — and a Dutch Bros. Coffee.

The three chains will be located south of Sagebrush Drive and west of Long Prairie Road in Flower Mound, according to the development plans.

Georgetown-based Embree Group is leading the charge on the project’s development, having worked closely with staff to ensure that the retail concept matches the aesthetic and feel of the area.

“The Embree Group has worked diligently with all three of these users to allow them to match in building materials for a comprehensive and unified look between all the exterior elevations,” Ashton Miller, land planner at McAdams, the full-service civil engineering firm that assisted the applicant on the project’s design, said at the city council meeting.

Flower Mound Mayor Derek France expressed eagerness to see such a fun project get approved for the town and its residents.

“I was wondering if you could tell us, are we going to be eating cheeseburgers, chicken, or drinking coffee first? Or will it all be at the same time?” France asked about which restaurant would go up first.

Site plan applications are expected to be submitted for Dutch Bros. and Slim Chickens on Monday, with site plans for Whataburger coming later, according to projections from McAdams Project Manager Scott Minnis.

Construction is anticipated to start during the summer and go through the winter. If things go according to plan, Flower Mound residents should be able to enjoy their new coffee, burger, and chicken spots this time next year, Minnis told council members.

“It’ll be great to actually have a Whataburger in town,” Council Member Jim Engel said. “Flower Mound is the largest city in Texas without a Whataburger, and I think it and Slim Chickens will do well here.”
