NEAR SCOTTSDALE, (3TV/CBS 5) -- Get ready Arizona, White Castle sliders are on the way!

White Castle broke ground on the first Arizona restaurant on Wednesday morning. The restaurant will be located west of the Loop 101 on Via de Ventura on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

The restaurant is scheduled to open in fall 2019. A specific opening date has not been announced. Up to 80 new jobs are expected to be created.

“White Castle has so many fans in the Phoenix area who have been clamoring for us to come,” noted Lisa Ingram, fourth-generation family member, White Castle president and CEO, who was on-site for the groundbreaking event earlier today. “Many years ago, we sent semi-trucks full of sliders across the nation to Fountain Hills to temporarily satisfy their crave. Today, we’re officially here for the long haul.”

Wow! I didn't think the tribes allowed franchises on their land. It will definitely be a coup for them since people from around the city and state will want to come try White Castle at least once. Money rolling in.


The Pavillions shopping center (also on the reservation) has housed numerous franchises for years.


Another coup for the indians. (If you can call opening a fast food joint a coup...)


Sounds good. I hope they are as delicious as I've heard about them.
