White Castle Celebrates National Slider Day with Free Original Sliders

White Castle introduced National Slider Day in May 2015 to honor the iconic, steamed-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions hamburger, which in 2014 Time magazine declared "the most influential burger of all time."

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In honor of National Slider Day on May 15th, White Castle, the iconic home of The Original Slider® and America’s first fast-food hamburger restaurant, is inviting Cravers to indulge in a complimentary Original Slider. No purchase is necessary for this tasty treat. Customers can simply access a digital coupon on White Castle’s social media channels or enter the code SLIDERDAY on the app to redeem the offer.

National Slider Day holds special significance for White Castle, as it commemorates the beloved Original Slider, renowned for its steamed-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions perfection. Time magazine even hailed it as “the most influential burger of all time” in 2014. White Castle, founded in 1921, revolutionized the fast-food industry with its affordability and convenience, principles that continue to define its legacy.

“We’re proud to have pioneered accessible, delicious dining experiences for our customers,” said Jamie Richardson, Vice President at White Castle. “Whether you’re a long-time Craver or a first-time visitor, everyone can enjoy our menu without breaking the bank. It’s a testament to our commitment to creating unforgettable moments for generations.”

While the Original Slider remains a fan favorite for its irresistible flavor, its compact 2×2-inch size has also earned it the affectionate nickname “Slider.” Since its debut in 1921, White Castle has expanded its Slider lineup to include a diverse range of options. From the classic Cheese Slider introduced in 1962 to innovative creations like the Chicken and Waffles Slider, Panko Fish Slider, and the plant-based Impossible™ Slider, there’s something to satisfy every craving.

White Castle’s dedication to accessibility extends beyond its restaurants. In 1987, it became the first fast-food chain to offer its signature Sliders in retail stores, selling over 6.5 billion Sliders nationwide. The same quality ingredients found in restaurant-made Sliders are meticulously preserved in the retail versions, ensuring that every microwave-heated Slider delivers an authentic White Castle experience.

For Cravers eager to enjoy their favorite Sliders at home, White Castle provides a convenient store locator on its website, guiding them to the nearest grocery retailer stocking White Castle products.

As National Slider Day approaches, White Castle invites everyone to join in the celebration and savor the timeless appeal of the Original Slider, a true culinary icon.
