COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- White Castle, America's first quick-service hamburger chain, announced today the launch of its newly redesigned mobile app, perfect for those who want to save time and money, and for those craving convenience in addition to their coveted Sliders.
"As a brand, we are constantly looking for ways to improve, evolve and keep up with ever-changing trends," said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. "Our revamped mobile app makes it easier than ever for our customers to order our menu items, right from their smart phones."
White Castle debuted its original version of its mobile app in 2012, and was one of the first quick-service hamburger restaurants to offer a mobile app for ordering food. The original app was created to help save customers time, by allowing them to order ahead for larger parties. It also gave them the option to customize their orders. White Castle values its customers' feedback, and updated the app to include the same crave-worthy benefits, but in a way that's more user friendly.
"We think our customers will really love the newly redesigned app and we're looking forward to hearing their feedback," said Richardson. "And while offering our Cravers a more user-friendly app was highly important to us, we wanted to do more because we truly value their loyalty and support of the White Castle brand. That's why in addition to convenience, we're offering our Cravers a way to save money, too."
To celebrate the launch of the app and encourage customers to download, White Castle is giving those who order online or through the mobile app a Crave-worthy deal – a sack of 10 Original Sliders for just $5.
The White Castle mobile app is available for free download now on the app store. In addition to ordering through the mobile app, White Castle also accepts mobile payments via Apple Pay and Android Pay.
