ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida’s only brick-and-mortar White Castle is getting ready to mark one year of business in Orlando by expanding its hours and operations.

The White Castle, located in The Village at O-Town West development, plans to expand its operating hours to 24-hours a day, seven days a week, according to a news release. The expansion is set to start in the summer, though no exact date was given.

The location is currently open from 7 a.m. to 4 a.m.


The change will come “this summer,” the release stated, but no date was given.

White Castle is also opening a second, 1,800-square-foot facility in the O-Town West development which will act as a ghost kitchen and will only be open for pick-up of online orders or for delivery services such as DoorDash or UberEats, according to the release.

This expansion will work in tandem with the White Castle ghost kitchen located in the Dollins Food Hall in downtown Orlando.
