Why Isn’t White Castle A Fast-Food Giant?

    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?

White Castle is a classic. Their chicken rings are just as good as McDonald's chicken nuggets

In the late 1970's and early 1980's, I used to go to White Castle in Rahway, N.J. after the nightclubs closed. I/we would each order a BAG o burgers cheeseburgers, fish sandwiches and fries. Burgers were $0.05, cheeseburgers were $0.06. So, we ordered like 6 burgers, 6 cheeseburgers, 2 fish and one fry, for around $2.00. The canned onions made a HUGE stink the next morning in the outbound stage in the bathroom. But, they tasted GREAT the night before. Flash forward to 2006, on a business trip to Chicago, I stopped into a White Castle. The burgers, still 2 bites and gone, were NOW $0.80 EACH!!!! Cheeseburgers NOW $1.00 EACH. I turned around and left. WAY overpriced for the size and quality. White Castle and other FAST FOOD stores were successful because they were CHEAP and FAST. Pull off the highway, order a sack, get back on the road and continue onward. NOW, a Burger King Big Whopper is nearly $5.00!!!!! With fries and a soft drink, nearly $10.00. Where in most restaurants one can order a fresh cooked sit down meal for around the same price. I no longer order any Fast Food.

They need to stop putting every burger in those little boxes. WAY too much waste for the environment.

Kinda feels like White Castle doesn’t know what they are doing, and a bit timid to do any crazy

They're also in Tennessee and the map does not show it. I put their taste in the same category as Krystal: YUCK! They both have the same taste of onion and Their bread comes from the same place by the way...

I'm surprised your Executive team hasn't told you to spring a few dollars to work on those eyebrows. Let's call those "cry brows". Ha Never had a White Castle, here we have Krystal's.

The only problem with White Castle is if you have two or three vehicles in front of you in the drive thru, it’s guaranteed you’re gonna be there a while.

I can’t speak for all of them but the ones I’ve been to around the Louisville area have really declined in quality. The price is still expensive for what you get and the good managers all seem to have retired or left. Quite sad for me as I really used to enjoy them.

Simple, you have 1 store in vegas on the west coast, you have east coasters that are transplants and can not get white castle, plus generations of people that have never had them. Time to rethink the game white castle. I'll even manage one and I live in a college town where only place open 24 hours is mcdonalds, you have almost no other competition.

I grew up eating White Castle in Chicago and I haven't eaten it in about 15 to 20 years because the last time I ate it I had gas so bad my side was cramping for a couple of days. I use to love it but it will give you gas real bad.
