We reported here several months back that it was rumored that In N Out Burger, the California based cult chain, many whom believe it to be the best fast food burger chain out there, was coming to Dallas area. We first heard this via a contact in the banking industry, but quickly dismissed it as a humor website known for pranks played a big ole April Fools joke on the New York area stating it was arriving there.
Then a small article in the Dallas Morning News reported that a local area suburb had cleared a zoning request for what was rumored to be an In N Out Burger location. I reported this once again at this time in a separate post.
Well they are speaking freely of their plans now. 9 area DFW locations are planned along with a distribution center. All locations have not yet been committed to, but the original zoning request in Garland, Texas has been confirmed as one of the locations. Another has been committed in near north Dallas along one of the major freeway arteries. They are rumored to be spread evenly throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area.
As reported previously, we look forward to the arrival. We believe In N Out Burger is clearly the best in fast food. Every time we go to Las Vegas, which as you readers know is quite regular, we go to In N Out Burger several times during one four day trip. We have the extra poundage to prove this, as these are not low calorie trips. But they are great trips to the best fast food out there.
All In N Out Burger outlets are corporate owned. There is no franchising. Most of the local competition is shrugging this off, and I agree, there is space enough for their existence in with the rest of the DFW fast food landscape…after all, we have enough large people in their electric chairs to feed all of the local fast food business. But we do believe there will be some impact on the current fast food scene.
But the one question remains…this chain has near cult like status. Part of this is because they stay very geographically tight on the west coast. With their expansion, will they truly retain their cult like status?
I welcome In N Out Burger to my area….I will drive miles to provide my patronage.
