    White Castle is widely considered to be the first hamburger fast-food chain in the United States. It's famous for small, cheap hamburger sliders and its role in the 2004 stoner comedy "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle." Despite its notoriety, the brand has a limited footprint in the Midwest and Northeast. So why is White Castle not nearly as big as rivals like McDonald's and Burger King?

I walked by a way Castle on the Fremont strip in Vegas and it smell like armpits that's probably why they're not a fast food giant. If I won't eat it when I'm super drunk on vacation in Las Vegas it's a good indicator that I won't eat it ever

White Castle is at a stage of stagnant growth so is an example of what ALL businesses must do if we are to tackle climate change without destroying any chance of an inhabitable Earth for the next generation. Of course, that probably won't happen, so instead, many (if not most) businesses can expect to be wiped off the face of the Earth entirely. At least they knew what was needed I guess.

Oh, I didn’t know living two blocks away from White Castle was that rare. Now I know why some relatives from different states are so amazed by White Castle.

Why isn't it a Giant? Well, they're everywhere here in Chicago. Sliders taste great, but man they slide out as easily as they slide in.

When you offer retail sales in the markets, that should be an indicator to that community right? If people are buying your frozen burgers in a retail store, dont you think they would definitely buy them fresh at a store? OPEN MORE WHITE CASTLES PLS MY CITY DOESNT HAVE ONE AHHHERHHGHHRHGFHRH!!!!
