White Castle, the iconic hamburger chain that has played a pivotal role in popularizing hamburgers in America, has introduced an in-app delivery option through its White Castle app. This move eliminates the reliance on third-party apps for delivery services, offering customers the convenience of having their favorite White Castle menu items, such as the 10-sack of Original Sliders, delivered to their doorstep at the same affordable prices they would find in-store.
The in-app delivery option, available in all of White Castle’s restaurant markets, ensures that customers pay the regular menu prices, with a straightforward $4.99 flat delivery fee and no hidden or additional charges.
Jamie Richardson, Vice President at White Castle, expressed, “The White Castle app has delivered cravings and savings for customers since it first launched. The addition of delivery in the app truly makes this a one-stop shop for anyone looking to satisfy their hankering for that one-of-a-kind taste of White Castle!”
White Castle’s in-app delivery service is made possible through a partnership with Uber Direct, Uber’s white-label delivery platform. The service is now accessible to all White Castle app users, and orders are fulfilled within a 5-mile radius of participating White Castle locations using Uber technology to connect each order with a driver or courier, ensuring that the Sliders arrive fresh and on time.
Bernie Huddlestun, Head of Uber Direct in the United States, commented, “Uber is constantly innovating to make it easier for restaurants to meet their customers where they are. We are excited to team up with White Castle to power on-demand delivery straight from their White Castle app.”
In addition to the delivery feature, the comprehensive White Castle app offers customers:
– A complete menu selection.
– A Castle locator.
– Customization options for their cravings.
– On-the-go ordering.
– The ability to save favorite Crave selections.
– Exclusive app-only menu items and offers.
