DALLAS (KRLD) - The company called Raygun has a t-shirt for sale with the phrase: "Chicago's Most Famous Texas Hamburger Chain as of June 2019." 

It's after Texas-based Whataburger announced it was selling a majority interest in the company to BDT Capital Partners, an investment banking firm.

Whataburger says its headquarters will stay in San Antonio despite the sale. In the meantime, the t-shirt company tweeted it envisions new menu items, like deep dish pizza and Chicago style hot dogs.

Together, BDT and the Whataburger team will begin exploring expansion plans - while staying true to the brand it has been over the past 69 years, the company added in its statement. 

"Whataburger has grown significantly over the years. And, in order to keep satisfying our customers, we've been exploring different options to expand the brand and introduce it to new audiences," said Whataburger President/CEO Preston Atkinson.
