At a press conference yesterday, the rumors of White Castle opening a location in Orlando were confirmed. But this won’t just be a ordinary location.
Besides confirming White Castle will open its first Florida location in decades, it announced that the Orlando location will also be the brand’s largest.
That makes sense considering the reaction White Castle got when it brought its food truck to Fun Spot America’s two Central Florida locations in 2015. At times, lines were 2-3 hours long with people waiting to place their order.
“Florida Cravers have long been asking for us to open a castle there,” said Lisa Ingram, president and CEO of White Castle and a fourth-generation family member. “We believe now is the right time for us enter the Sunshine State, and Orlando is an ideal location to launch our business there.”
The 4,500-square-foot restaurant will be located at The Village at O-Town West, on Daryl Carter Parkway and Palm Parkway, near Walt Disney World and SeaWorld Orlando.
Like other White Castle locations, the Orlando location will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So no matter when the WC craving hits, they’ll be open.
O-Town West developer Chuck Whittall said they expect to break ground in early 2020, with an opening sometime late 2020/early 2021.
