White Castle Teams with Dave Pollot on Special Jigsaw Puzzle

    Industry News | January 4, 2023

    White Castle has teamed up with New York artist Dave Pollot to offer something new and different to Cravers, especially those with a taste for fine art and puzzles.

    The famed home of The Original Slider has turned one of Pollot’s collectible works of art into a 285-piece jigsaw puzzle, which is now available for sale while supplies last at the House of Crave, White Castle’s online store. Net proceeds from the sale of the puzzle, which costs $24.99 plus tax, will be donated to White Castle’s Team Member Relief Fund, an emergency support program designed to help team members who encounter unexpected financial hardships.

    The still-life oil painting is one of several pieces in Pollot’s “Calorie Composition” series, which all feature food items representing various brands thoughtfully placed among flowers and other inanimate objects, creating an interesting juxtaposition between classic images and contemporary icons. The White Castle print shows three Sliders and some onion rings along with French fries and a soft drink in White Castle’s distinctive packaging, all displayed among bunches of grapes and a vase holding muted pink and peach flowers.

    “When we saw Dave’s painting featuring White Castle, we just knew we had to collaborate with him to give even more value and recognition to this fabulous work — it is ‘art of the unexpected’ at its finest,” says Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle. “We loved the idea of creating and selling a jigsaw puzzle to heighten awareness of the piece, and the idea of using the proceeds to support our Team Member Relief Fund makes the project even more worthwhile.”

    Pollot is a New York-based artist known for bringing “new life to old art.” He finds unwanted, thrift paintings and adds his own touch, most often pop culture icons and parodies. In doing so, he says he “bridges the divide between classic and pop art.”

    Purchasing a puzzle for a good cause will make anyone feel warm and fuzzy inside. If you want to feel even cozier, then treat yourself to some delicious comfort food as you put your White Castle puzzle together.

    For a limited time, White Castle is offering its unique and delicious take on two seasonal favorites — sloppy joes and mac and cheese — all for special low prices.

    The Sloppy Joe Slider features lean ground beef made with savory onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers for a sweet and tangy flavor. It’s the classic traditional sloppy joe, slider-sized! The Smoky Joe Slider is the Sloppy Joe Slider topped with smoked cheddar cheese and crispy onions. Those looking to spice things up this winter can enjoy the Spicy Joe Slider, topped with spicy jalapeño cheese and jalapeño crisps.

    White Castle’s Mac and Cheese Nibblers are cheese-covered macaroni coated with a crave-able crispy batter, making them soft and creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. A perfect pair to all three Sloppy Joe Sliders, the Mac and Cheese Nibblers are available in three sizes starting at $1.99: small (five Nibblers), medium (12 Nibblers) or sack (20 Nibblers).
