New fast food chains

New local restaurants aren’t the only thing that caused a stir in Johnson County this year, several fast food chains have also been causing a stir.

Hawaiian Bros., a Hawaiian food chain based in Belton, Missouri, has opened several branches in the area since early 2021, since the first day they opened.

Also, we couldn’t finish a review of the new restaurants for 2021 without mentioning Whataburger.

The San Antonio-based burger chain has yet to officially open branches in Johnson County, but the company (which has the backing of Kansas City chief quarterback Patrick Mahomes) caused a stir during the first metro franchise at Lee’s Summit opened in November at miles-long lines of cars and record sales.
