The Whataburger hamburger chain is moving its corporate headquarters form Corpus Christi to San Antonio.

  A company statement says the move will be made gradually as early as next year. Meanwhile, the Corpus Christi home office will continue to function during the transition. The move will affect 250 headquarters workers.
 
Whataburger president Preston Atkinson says San Antonio offers cost-efficient office space, easier flights to the 10 states where the chain operates, a skilled technology work force and shelter from hurricanes.
 
The move comes 58 years after the family owned company started with Harmon Dobson's single stand in Corpus Christi in 1950. The company now has more than 700 restaurants in 10 states with 21,000 employees and 2007 revenue topping $1 billion.
