COLUMBUS, OHIO — White Castle, the iconic fast-food hamburger chain, has stepped into the political arena by proposing the first-ever Slider Summit (#SliderSummit) to “reconnect the country.”

According to a statement from the company, the #SliderSummit would be a gathering of leaders in Washington “with the aim to continue import conversations, all while empowered by White Castle cuisine.”

The company even offered to drive the Crave Mobile, their “legendary” food truck, 300 miles from Columbus, Ohio to the shutdown streets of Washington, D.C.

“At White Castle, we’ve been connecting food lovers since we served the first slider in 1921, so we know a thing or two about bringing people together around a common table,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle. “That’s why we’re willing to drive the Crave Mobile more than 300 miles to Washington D.C. for the first-ever Slider Summit to assist with finding a solution that works for all Americans.”

Even if the Crave Mobile doesn’t make it to D.C., White Castle is offering Federal employees to visit their local White Castle restaurant on Tuesday, January 29, for a free Combo Meal or Breakfast Combo Meal.

Government employees must show their federal ID card.
