Since A&W started out as a root beer stand in 1919, many people consider White Castle to be the world’s first true fast food restaurant.
White Castle was founded September 13, 1921 by Walt Anderson and Billy Ingram in Wichita, Kansas.
Billy Ingram moved White Castle to Columbus, Ohio in 1934 after buying out Anderson’s share of the business.
They are currently headquartered in Columbus, Ohio.
White Castle created the Cravers Hall of Fame in 2001 as an exclusive, honorary club to recognize White Castle’s most dedicated and zealous fans. Each year, White Castle receives several hundred entries that show just how far some people will go to satisfy their crave. Some of the stories are funny, some are poignant and some are remarkable, but all of them are very personal, heartfelt testaments to the ways in which White Castle has touched their lives and created lasting memories. A total of 228 people have been inducted into White Castle’s Craver Hall of Fame. Notable inductees include rock ‘n’ roll icon Alice Cooper, comic pioneer Stan Lee, award-winning fashion designer Telfar Clemens, and the stars of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Kal Penn and John Cho.
