Orlando, Fla. — Only a few days left until Orlando gets a White Castle.
The 100-year-old chain’s largest building ever built is opening near Interstate 4 on Daryl Carter Parkway at The Village at O-Town West on Monday, May 3.
“We’ll open up at 8 a.m. and we’ll close at 1 a.m. and it’ll probably take us until three or four to serve the customers who are in line at 1 a.m.,” said Michael Guinan, Vice President Operations Services at White Castle.
“We anticipate the drive thru line will be at least a mile long.”
After opening day, the restaurant will serve up to 60 sliders per customer from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.
Eventually, the location will operate 24 hours a day.
Indoor seating allows for 127 people, an open-air patio can seat 72, and dual drive thru lines allow employees to walk up to the customer’s window.
Orlando’s White Castle is the brand’s return to Florida since the 1960s when they operated several restaurants in Miami.
