White Castle has expanded its retail food manufacturing plant in Vandalia, Ohio. The plant, named “The House That Bill Built” in honor of former president and CEO Bill Ingram, supplies packaged frozen sliders to retailers, large and small, in all 50 states, according to a press release.
White Castle invested more than $27 million in the expansion, which doubled the size of the facility from 75,000 square feet to approximately 150,000 square feet. The project, which took just over a year to complete, will add 75 jobs to the current workforce of 160 once the new production lines are fully operational.
“We continue to see a growing demand in all markets for our retail sliders,” Dave Rife, chief manufacturing officer at White Castle, said in the release. “This expansion gives us the capacity we need to ensure grocery stores and retail outlets across the U.S. have the White Castle products they need to satisfy their customers’ cravings.”
The plant has been under construction since July 2021.
White Castle operates more than 350 restaurants.
