White Castle Plans for Second Arizona Restaurant, This Time in Tempe


A new White Castle restaurant is planned to open in Tempe in the first half of 2023. It will be the 101-year-old Columbus-based chain’s second Arizona location; the first opened in Scottsdale in 2019. White Castle fans across the region have been craving an additional location ever since, says the company.

The newest Arizona White Castle will be approximately 2,800 square feet and will feature the iconic White Castle tower. The location will create 60 new jobs.

The newest White Castle will be at 8755 S. Jewel St., 85284 in south Tempe at the Emerald Center off Warner Road at I-10.

Partners with Arizona presence will play an essential role in bringing the site to life.  The property developer is Emerald Center. Cuhaci Peterson is the architect. Kimley-Horn is handling civil services.

Founded in 1921, White Castle is home to The Original Slider®, recognized by Time Magazine as the most influential burger of all time. White Castle remains a family-owned business and was recently awarded certification as a “Great Place to Work” for the second year in a row.  Today, White Castle’s famous fare, including breakfast, is served 24 hours a day, seven days a week in most restaurants.
