ok
i found out why they won't come to los angeles
they never wanted to franchise to anyone, and the owner has a psychotic aversion to rats and prickly pears
 
the court cases against TOWER were dragged out as long as humanly possible
and then, at the end, the copy cat guy admitted everything--even told how he had secret pictures taken of the inner castle dimensions with smugglered spy cameras
and how he purposely copied everything
and was given a few restrictions and made to pay a quite reasonable fee, (350 or 450 dollars), to CASTLE, for every TOWER he opened
and i saw no mention of exclusive territories or anything
so, essentially, he ended up with a situation where he had ultimately forced CASTLE to give him de facto franchising rights to do a chain of restaurants that looked like white castles and followed the same business techniques
and had a comically similar slogan
but, either by court order or design
 didn't serve the slider
or anything much like it
just sorta another round dry regular sized burger
like everyone else
and they don't exist any more

    Just for the record, there are White Castles west of the Mississippi in Minneapolis and St. Louis.

        This whole conversation with Dwylbtzle reminds me of a Seinfeld episode where Elaine communicates with some guy whom she thinks is sensitive to her needs, etc. She ends up going to his apartment and it is some 13 year old boy......

            you gotta go out with 'em a few times
            you never know how old from the voice
            guys that old are kinda set in their ways
            always wanting to settle down and get serious
            i go more for the randy young devil may care free types, myself

                  Dwylbtzle ......... your in big trouble ..........I understand and enjoy every thing your writing .... you are a blast of fresh air here on Roadfood and your doing a fantastic job of breaking up the mundane babble of  RF contributers that have over 1000 posts,  (after 1000 posts we just become boring)....so please don't go away, not until you have at least 100 posts and two warning e-mails from a moderator.

                    I'm surprised that your extensive research on the subject didn't turn up the fact that White Castle originated west of the Mississippi River in Wichita, Kansas. Kansas is still west of the Mississippi River, isn't it?
