White Castle Franchise Information

Starting a white castle franchise may not be as hard as you think it would be. Just like starting any other types of franchises, dedication and efforts are needed to ensure the success of the business.

Here are some of the things that you should consider if you are planning to purchase White Castle franchise.

The first thing that you should know about the franchise company that you want to be a part of is its history and background. This is for you to somehow have an idea on what type of people run the franchise company itself because whether you like it or not, these people are the ones to whom you need to communicate with in order for your own franchise to grow.

White Castle was actually established in the year 1921 in Wichita, Kansas. As of today, there are more than 400 units of White Castles in approximately 11 states here in America. White Castle is also considered as the first ever hamburger fast food restaurant. With this, White Castle has become famous when it comes to hamburgers. White Castle is also for its “Slider”.
There is an important thing that you need to know about White Castle franchise. White Castle is actually a franchise company which is being run by a family. In short, they are not open for franchisees. But if you still want to start a white castle franchise, you can contact the franchise company on how to open a White castle franchise internationally since you do not have the chance to start one in the United States.

As a general rule, for you to be able to earn money, you need to spend money first. If you want to be successful in business, you should be willing to invest your money. And the amount of the profit that you will earn depends on how much capital you are willing to invest. In White Castle franchise, it would take thousands of dollars or even a million in order for you to start a single unit. But once you have started a franchise of White Castle, the likelihood of you becoming successful will increase.

In case that you were granted to become an international franchisee of White Castle, the most important thing that you need to consider is the location of your business. Make sure that you choose a good location. A location is considered suitable for White Castle when there are a lot of people. Ideal places to start your White Castle franchise are malls, main streets, and different places wherein there are a lot of people who will see the establishment.

You will be provided with an effective marketing plan to ensure that your business will become successful. Also, the franchise company will not let you start your own business without them educating you of the important things that you need to know about the franchise company itself.

    I live in Saudi Arabia for the past 10 years and have a wonderful idea of spreading the fantastic taste of White Castles here. All of the other big name restaurants are here with great success. But, what a shame the people here have not yet experienced the great taste of the "slider". I am very interested in becoming a franchisee of the establishment and share its great taste all over the middle east.

    I am very interested in being the first to open a White Castle on the west coast here in Las Vegas, Nevada. Las Vegas is a booming 24 hour city that's strives on conveyance. I think a White Castle would be ideal for Las Vegas.
  • Jimmy said on June 20, 2011
    White Castle is not a franchise. It is privately owned. I have contacted their corporate office a few times and always receive the same response. I'd love one here in Miami but it doesn't look as if it will happen anytime soon. I sure hope though.

    WE live in Wilmington NC and it is a very busy tourist town and would love to own and or Operate a White Castle burger here. I lived in Jacksonville Fl for a few years back in the late 80's and getting a White Castle Burger on Friday night with my family was the best night of the week now a mother and young grandmother I would love this experience for my family now. They have never had a White Castle burger in their life.
  • Smith's Family said on July 2, 2012
    I have tried many times to contact White Castle incurring about opening a location in Las Vegas and my family funding everything, but sad to say they have not responded nor contacted us back. I'm very sad that we could not have one here in Las Vegas, NV. That would bring so much money to the city and also the business. I so love there burger's and I do not even eat meat,but there just one of a kind.

Anything that creates work for people to have jobs is a good thing. Think about that! EXPAND A PUT PEOPLE TO WORK!!!!!

  • nadia nunn said on March 14, 2013
    I want to franchise a white castle through Atlanta Georgia why? Because I am from Chicago and I grew up eating these sliders. I recall momma bringing the 24 case home after work on Friday evening for the family I would eat 6 cheeseburgers fries and a coke I have relocated to Atlanta Georgia and the closest things to sliders is Krystal's and they suck. PLANTING A WHITE CASTLES IN THE SOUTH WOULD BE LIKE WINNING THE LOTTERY.

  • Brendan Quigley said on May 1, 2013
    Providence, Rhode Island. I would like to build a White Castle franchise on the University of Rhode Island Campus. There are no White Castles in New England and I feel like if one was built on the URI campus it would be extremely popular because URI is highly populated with students from New Jersey. Rhode Island needs a White Castle. I know it could be successful if I was given the chance
  • Frank Lopez said on July 23, 2013
    Jacksonville, NC. If White Castle was to expand to NC it should plant one right here in Jacksonville. Here is why. It has 40,000 service members from all over the U.S. the fast food industry is never lacking in business here, there are always lines especially the drive thru. I am originally from Chicago and any other service member I speak to from any area a WC is located go nuts at the mention of the delishousness. Please White Castle locate and plant in NC.
  • David Jones said on August 13, 2013
    To whom it may concern. My wife and I live in Carson City, Nev. where there is not a White Castle franchise. We moved here from Kankakee, Ill. and we both miss the certain taste of a fresh White Castle. I have a great idea on how to up the sales of White Castle in grocery stores throughout the country.I sure do wish you would contact me so I could submit my idea. Thank you, David Jones (dwjones1940@charter.net)

    To Whom It May Concern, I am very interested and re-opening a White Castle franchise here in Kansas City MO. Kansas City is a big major market for this type of business. White Castle has been a part of the KCMO area for years and for some reason it relocated out. Kansas City is still having those big talks regarding the (GOOD OWE White Castle Burgers) and would love to have them back up and running around the KC area. If you’re interested in re-opening a location within the Kansas City area, please email me back.

  • Kevin Fordham said on April 13, 2015
    Obviously, white castle is hands down the best fast food restaurant. The first experience I had was in New Jersey. I live in Pennsylvania now, but seriously the franchise really doesnt want to expand only due to the fact of profit? No no, as a business enthusiast i assure you the you have to spend money to make money and i absolutely guarantee, just off of highway 81 in carlisle or harrisburg PA, you would be able to transfer your local raw material and triple if not quadruple your profits as well as spread joy. You have to know that times changed it's 2015 and I think its time people had a real slider burger. NO MORE WALMART FROZEN BURGERS.

  • Penny Holderbach said on September 8, 2015
    I am interested in opening a White Castle here in Phoenix, Arizona. I believe that Phoenix would be a perfect place for a White Castle for many reasons. Arizona is home of one of the largest University's and with that comes many hungry college students. Because of the reasonable price of White Castle, I believe college students would be all over the idea of having one. Great hangout, for a reasonable price. Secondly, the west is home to many snowbirds, and people who used to live in the east, where White Castle is most relevant. I believe that White Castle would appeal to that age group as well. The people who are in the age range of 60-75 make up the majority of our current population, and oddly enough most of them grew up with a White Castle right in their backyard. I would like to argue that a White Castle was just built in Las Vegas not too long ago, and it has done a phenomenal job. I believe the same will happen in Phoenix, and I am willing to risk and invest the money to see it happen. Thank you.
