Everybody loves White Castle. Don’t they? Late last year the fast-food restaurant chain announced they are returning to Florida in a big way.
The Ohio-based franchise, best known for their signature sliders, is bringing the largest restaurant in their family (4,500 square-foot restaurant) and it will located at The Village at O-Town West near Daryl Carter Parkway off of Interstate 4.
It has been awhile since sliders were served in Florida. White Castle said a location was in operation in Miami in the 1960s.
“Florida cravers have long been asking for us to open a castle there,” said Lisa Ingram, president and CEO of White Castle in a written statement. “We believe now is the right time for us enter the Sunshine State, and Orlando is an ideal location to launch our business there.”
Tomorrow there will be a Facebook live event broadcasting the restaurant’s virtual groundbreaking. If you want to join in on the celebration all you have to do is follow White Castle on Facebook and tune in at 4:30 p.m.
A few fun facts about this White Castle:
- The restaurant will open in 2021.
- It will create approximately 120 jobs for Central Florida residents.
- Like other locations, the restaurant will be open 24 hours, seven days a week.
- It is part of a $1B multipurpose project off Interstate 4.
