“We are humbled by the warm welcome we have received from the Central Florida community and expect to hire outstanding team members when we gear up for our Orlando Castle opening this spring,” said Orlando Operating Partner Francis Nation.
Like many team members now holding leadership positions, Nation began his 25-year tenure with White Castle working behind the counter. Mike Guinan, vice president operations services for White Castle, shares a similar career trajectory with more than 34 years of service. “We’re committed to fueling continued growth in Orlando by providing a ‘best place to work’ environment for all of our team members, as well as a long-term career opportunity,” said Guinan. “We stand ready to encourage a friendly spirit in the restaurant as we feed the souls of ‘craver’ generations everywhere by offering hot and tasty affordable food.”
Located in southwest Orlando at Unicorp’s $1 billion The Village at O-Town West mixed-use development, White Castle expects to start satisfying Central Florida “cravers” by spring 2021. The 4,567-square foot restaurant will include indoor and outdoor seating and two drive-through lanes, highlighted by the brand’s eye-catching tower in a sleek, modern industrial-style architectural design.
Since its beginning 100 years ago, Columbus, Ohio-based White Castle has held fast to its founder’s belief that families everywhere should be able to enjoy an evening at a restaurant with tasty food at a great value creating memorable moments. March 10, 2021 marked the 100th birthday of White Castle’s business launch — America’s first fast-food hamburger chain. In honor of the milestone, White Castle will be celebrating all year long with special events, fun promotions and new menu items.
White Castle, America’s first fast-food hamburger chain, has been making hot and tasty Sliders as a family-owned business for 100 years. Based in Columbus, Ohio, White Castle started serving The Original Slider® in 1921. Today White Castle owns and operates more than 360 restaurants dedicated to satisfying customers’ cravings morning, noon and night and sells its famous fare in retail stores nationwide. The Original Slider is served alongside a menu of creatively crafted sliders and other mouthwatering food options, including White Castle’s Impossible™ Slider, named by Thrillist in 2019 as the “Best Plant-Based Fast Food Burger.” White Castle’s commitment to maintaining the highest quality products extends to the company owning and operating its own meat processing plants, bakeries and frozen-food processing plants. White Castle is known for its faithful fans, affectionately referred to as Cravers, many of whom compete each year for entry into the Cravers Hall of Fame. The official White Castle app, available at iTunes App Store or Google Play, makes it easy for Cravers to access sweet deals and place pickup orders any time. They can also have their orders delivered using one of White Castle’s delivery partners.
