Texans’ favorite fast food place is reportedly for sale with an eye on expansion.

Whataburger confirmed it hired the investment banking firm Morgan Stanley to explore its options.

The company has more than 800 locations in the south and southwest. Most are in Texas.

But the sale of all or part of the San Antonio-based company would allow it to expand beyond its seventh place among American burger chains.
