On Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021, residents around downtown Orlando started to order the tiny burgers/sliders from the new virtual/ghost kitchen of White Castle of Orlando near John Young Parkway and Colonial Drive, at 18 N. Dollins Ave. The response was so overwhelming that White Castle had to shut down the virtual kitchen just two days after opening, on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021. One of the Orlando residents ordered from White Castle at 10:30 am on Tuesday via Uber Eats. Two hours later, she was notified that her order was canceled. The company resumed online ordering on Thursday at 10 a.m., but for online pick-up orders only. Around noon on Thursday, a statement was released saying White Castle virtual/ghost kitchen would have to cease operations until Spring.
White Castle announced that the company needs to pause operations until Spring (when its full-service restaurant will open near Disney World, in the O-Town West development on Daryl Carter Parkway near Disney), due to overwhelming demands. In a statement released on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, “We are going to pause operations at our virtual kitchen in Orlando until after our full-service restaurant location in the O-Town West development opens. The overwhelming number of orders for White Castle has been humbling and reinforces we made the right choice to choose Central Florida as the site for our next permanent destination Castle. Because of the relatively small size of the virtual kitchen and the incredibly high number of orders, running the virtual kitchen isn’t currently sustainable.”

That craving for some White Castle sliders soon will be satisfied. The popular burger chain is set to open a brand new Florida restaurant Tuesday, Feb. 23, near downtown Orlando, according to the Orlando Sentinel. It’s been a long time coming, with the company announcing initial groundbreaking plans back in 2019, in the video published on Feb. 21, 2021, “Florida’s newest White Castle in years opens Tuesday for delivery”, below:
In a sea of fast food competitors, White Castle stands out. Perhaps it’s the small size of its iconic sliders, the mystique of its busy late night hours, or scarcity in certain states, but the company has been successful creating a “crave-worthy” business. Here are a few fun facts you should know before your next White Castle run. Step aside, Harold and Kumar: Martin Kessman was a frequent customer of White Castle for an impressive 50 years, but he eventually became so overweight that he could no longer fit himself into the booths at his local Nanuet, New York, location. So Kessman sued White Castle in 2011 under the Americans with Disabilities Act for not providing him with six more inches of, quote, “gut space.” This lack of gut space became a real problem when Kessman tried to squeeze into one of the booths and injured his knee in the process. Rather than shun White Castle burgers for good over the cramped seating, Kessman simply had his wife pick up his slider supply. The lawsuit was eventually dropped once White Castle renovated the location, providing proper gut space with new seating, in the video published on July 3, 2019, “Here’s The Truth About White Castle People Don’t Know“, below:
