Your Harold and Kumar dreams just came true: White Castle will open its first Arizona restaurant in 2019 in the Scottsdale area.
The company announced plans on Friday for the restaurant, which will be at The Block at Pima Center, on the northwest corner of Via De Ventura and Loop 101. It is the first White Castle family-owned location west of the Mississippi River.
"For years, cravers in Arizona have been asking us to feed their souls by bringing our delicious sliders to the state, and we're happy to announce that we're going to make this dream a reality," Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle, said in a statement. "We are eager to become a member of the Scottsdale community."
No specific date was given for the opening. White Castle, which bills itself as the country's first fast-food burger chain, is expected to bring 50 to 75 jobs to the area.
