On Saturday, September 28, 1935, the location known as White Castle restaurant number 30 in Whiting, Indiana, opened its doors for business.  Located at Indianapolis Boulevard and 119th Street, the restaurant hit record sales of $904.50 in only its first week and has been a high-selling location within the company ever since.  

In honor of this milestone, the Whiting-area restaurant will offer special savings via coupons in The Northwest Indiana Times from Monday, September 20 through Saturday, September 25. Customers can find coupons in The Northwest Indiana Times for offers like $.75 off any sack of 10 White Castle hamburgers, cheeseburgers or jalapeno cheeseburgers; a Crave Case of Original Sliders® for $14.75; or any breakfast sandwich on bun or toast for only $.75.  

"We are proud to have served the Whiting community for 75 years and plan to continue to provide our Cravers with hot, fresh food for many more years," said Bill Thompson, White Castle Regional Director.

The original building featured seating for 30 and parking for 26 vehicles.  It was one of the company's signature white porcelain steel structures with the instantaneously recognizable castle-type architecture and clean stainless steel surfaces inside.
