Fox News’ Madison Alworth reports live from a White Castle in Merrillville, Indiana to show how the robot might just be changing the workforce.
White Castle is expanding its 1921 Slider line with two new menu items that will be available for a limited time.
On Friday, White Castle launched a 1921 BBQ Bacon Slider and 1921 Ghost Slider, the regional hamburger chain announced in a press release.
The two burgers join White Castle’s 1921 Slider.
It's a hamburger the company created and launched in April, which takes inspiration from the recipe that the chain used 101 years ago.

"My great-grandfather came up with many brilliant ideas as he launched White Castle in 1921 and in the decades to follow," White Castle CEO Lisa Ingram said in a statement at the time of the slider’s launch.
The 1921 Slider line reportedly uses 100% beef patties.
Each burger is served with lettuce, pickles, a slice of Roma tomato, grilled caramelized onions and a signature bun, according to White Castle.
With the 1921 BBQ Bacon Slider, customers get bacon, smoked cheddar cheese and Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce added to their burger.
The spicy 1921 Ghost Slider, on the other hand, is served with a slice of ghost pepper cheese and a creamy jack cheese that’s infused with ghost pepper flakes.
Both burgers will be available at participating locations through the end of November.
White Castle currently owns and operates more than 350 restaurants in the U.S., according to the company’s corporate summary.
