Jamie Richardson is an "Ultimate Craver" who took his love of White Castle hamburgers to its logical extreme, joining the White Castle home office team in 1998.

Family-owned White Castle is the oldest hamburger chain in the United States. Twelve members of the Ingram family, through the fourth generation, work for the 420-unit business.

Jamie presently serves on the board of trustees for the American Red Cross of Greater Columbus, the Conway Family Business Center, the Kiwanis Club of Columbus, the National Council of Chain Restaurants, the Ohio Restaurant Association, the YMCA - Central Ohio and Siena Heights University.
