Why we're not getting In-N-Out Burger here anytime soon

The 30-year-old owner does not want to fix what ain't broke.

Why we're not getting In-N-Out Burger here anytime soon


The owner of In-N-Out Burger - the California-based fast-food chain with a cult following - is a hot-rod-racing, thrice-married, 30-year-old mother of twins.

Lynsi Torres, whom Bloomberg dubbed the youngest female billionaire in the country, happened to have the great fortune to be the granddaughter of In-N-Out's founders. She inherited the company after her grandmother died in 2006.

"Since In-N-Out restaurants do not have any freezers or microwaves, every new location must be within a short distance of its Baldwin Park [Calif.] or Dallas distribution facilities," writes the Orange County Register in a great profile.

There are 281 locations, all in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Texas.

This, coupled with In-N-Out's slow growth and Torres' youth, means we'll probably be deprived of double-doubles forever.
