2024 is shaping to be a good year for Cravers in Arizona demanding even more White Castle. The iconic family-owned brand, the first fast food hamburger chain in America, plans to open a third Arizona restaurant – in Goodyear.

The new 3,220-square-foot Castle will be located at 1420 North Bullard Ave., near the intersection of McDowell Road just north of I-10 in Goodyear. The new location will create 50 jobs. The groundbreaking in Goodyear will take place in the coming months.

“The response of Cravers everywhere in the Valley of the Sun has been amazing through our first two openings in Arizona,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle. “White Castle has always prioritized hot and tasty affordable food, and we can’t wait to create more memories with this Castle in Goodyear.”

The Goodyear Castle will feature 52 dining room seats, a covered patio with 14 outdoor seats, and a double drive-thru. State-of-the-art technology will include digital interior menu boards and the new AI-assisted menu board in the drive-thru. The AI drive-thru technology at White Castle is called “Julia,” named for Julia Joyce, a beloved host at White Castle in the 1930’s.

White Castle’s first location in Scottsdale at 9310 East Via de Ventura opened in October 2019. The second Castle location in Arizona, at 8735 South Jewel Street in Tempe, opened on November 28, 2023, and included a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by a Tempe-area couple who met at a White Castle 72 years ago.

Like the Scottsdale and Tempe locations, the Goodyear Castle will feature the full White Castle menu of hot and tasty customizable sliders and a variety of delicious sides to satisfy White Castle fans’ cravings, morning, noon and during the gorgeous Arizona nights.
