(Scroll down for video) A new restaurant in Nevada, couldn’t keep up with demand and had to shut its doors until employees were able to restock the refrigerator.

The 24-hour White Castle that opened in Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon around 2:00 p.m., closed its doors just a day later because they were too busy.

The steady stream of customers forced the fast food chain to close while replenishing supplies.

A spokesperson for White Castle said that the restaurant was selling hamburgers at a rate of 4,000 per hour for the first twelve hours.

He also said that workers needed a rest and the restaurant had to be cleaned. It was the first time that a White Castle closed its doors due to high demand.

The closest White Castle is 1,500 miles away in Missouri.
