Move Over BBQ: In-N-Out Expands To Texas
At least eight In-N-Out restaurants are planning to open in Texas with the first locations set to open in as soon as two months, reports the OC Register. When In-N-Out announced it was conquering Utah three years ago, the regional chain reportedly said it had no additional plans for US domination. Does this mean we can expect an In-N-Out in Philadelphia?? For now, the answer is no. However, the Lone Star state is about to get less lonely.
In Texas, the chain is looking to set up outposts in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. "We have been under construction on Frisco and Allen for some time and hope to have those two open by the end of May," said Carl Van Fleet, In-N-Out’s vice president of planning and development, reports the OC Register. Future growth is also being considered in Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
The move to Texas was first announced last spring, and to "recreate a phenomenon that for 62 years has been isolated to the West Coast, In-N-Out will build a second meat commissary in Texas," reports the OC Register. The company is temporarily leasing a 60,000-square foot facility in Dallas to house a beef processing plant and warehouse to mirror the chain's Baldwin Park distribution headquarters.
