White Castle celebrated the grand reopening of its Hilliard restaurant at 1550 Hilliard-Rome Road on Dec. 8. The rebuilt Castle restaurant incorporates technology that leads the restaurant industry while maintaining old school dining options and keeping 40 jobs.
The 38-foot by 74-foot building seats up to 48 guests and includes drive-thru service. It includes self-ordering stations for guests to choose their meals from a touch-screen menu. Just like the original White Castle restaurants, seating will be available at a front counter. An open kitchen design will allow guests to watch their orders being made from start to finish. The updated design will be enhanced with a Coca-Cola Freestyle® fountain dispenser.
The sleek, stylish Coca-Cola Freestyle® fountains are touch-screen operated, enabling Cravers to select from more than 100 regular and low-calorie brands including waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages.
“White Castle’s had a presence in Columbus since the 1930s,” said Chris Shaffery, White Castle regional director. “As we explore new locations to open Castles, we know how important it is to reinvest in the cities where we’re currently located. As a family-owned business for more than 90 years, we’ve learned to listen to the feedback from our Cravers and to offer new innovations to make the White Castle experience more memorable than ever before.”
The newest White Castle will serve the chain’s famous fare, including the iconic Original Slider® 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Breakfast will be served from midnight until 10:30 a.m. The full menu is available online or with a mobile ordering app at http://www.whitecastle.com/onlineordering.
