by Brittani Tuttle

White Castle, the restaurant chain known best for its small, square hamburger sliders, will be opening its first Florida location in Orlando.

The restaurant will be located at The Village at O-Town West, and is set to be among the company’s largest locations at 4,500 square feet. Construction is scheduled to begin in April 2020 and should be finished by late 2020 or early 2021.

“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 to enter the Sunshine State, and Orlando is an ideal location to launch our business there.”

Based out of Columbus, Ohio, White Castle operates more than 375 restaurants in 13 states. Once open, the Orlando location will bring that number up to 14. The Orlando castle will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week – the same as other White Castle locations.
