SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — One of the 30 items on the Sherman Planning and Zoning Commission agenda Tuesday night was a proposal to build a new Whataburger restaurant in the city.

The plan passed with just one dissenting vote.

The restaurant will be erected at the corner of West Travis Street and U.S. 75, currently a vacant lot. The time frame for construction has not been announced.

"The city's perspective? We're really excited, because we have these chain restaurants that are adding second, third, fourth locations... that's really a sign of a good, growing, healthy city," said city spokesperson Nate Strauch. "You don't go to McKinney or Plano and expect to see one McDonald's, so we think this is a great thing that shows really the economic health of our city, that these large major brands are doubling down investment in our city."

Strauch said the city is always reaching out to lure more unique retailers, and hopes that the Whataburger will be part of a second shopping center on the south side.

Other items discussed and approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission included a new Jack in the Box restaurant, just south of the new Whataburger location.

Two new restaurants have been approved for the south side of Sherman.
