It’s official! The first White Castle in the state of Arizona will debut with much fanfare and a ribbon-cutting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, October 23. The Castle, located at 9310 E. Via de Ventura in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community’s Talking Stick Entertainment District near Scottsdale, has been long-anticipated by White Castle Cravers throughout the Phoenix region and beyond. This newest Castle has hired 130 team members and managers.
“White Castle has so many fans in the Phoenix area who have been clamoring for us to come,” noted Lisa Ingram, 4th generation family member, White Castle president and CEO, who was on-site for the groundbreaking event earlier this year. “Many years ago, we sent semi-trucks full of sliders across the nation to Fountain Hills to temporarily satisfy their Crave. Today, we’re officially here for the long haul.”
Since its inception nearly 100 years ago, 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. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, White Castle is excited to venture west to become part of the desert community, providing a place where morning, noon and night, fans can satisfy their cravings and create memorable moments.
Founded in 1921, White Castle is home to The Original Slider®, recognized by Time Magazine as the most influential burger of all time. Today, White Castle’s famous fare is served 24 hours a day, seven days a week in most restaurants, including breakfast.
