This is a sore spot with me. I love White Castles. Grew up with them. The store bought ones just aren’t as good; you might say, they can’t hold a candle to the real ones. There’s no White Castle stand within probably 200 miles of where I live now. But I know that if they ever opened one in my town, it would be packed all day and night. Years ago I contacted the WC people, begging them to consider opening a franchise in my town. Got back this curt little note about how they’re the experts regarding their marketing plan and that it would never include my town. Like a said, it’s a sore spot with me.
How about this candle? Burn one for the aroma while eat a store bought one...
Failing that, eat the candle.
I've heard that they have "studied" locations for 10-15 years before putting up a WC. They have pretty strict qualifications. Traffic patterns. Potential city growth. Demographics. They study how cities develop their streets. That's why there are so few.
