Earlier today, a petition was shared on the The Spirit Of Aggieland facebook group asking the iconic In-N-Out Burger to build a location in Bryan-College Station stating: “You can get a Double-Double Animal Style or 4×4 at t.u., UNT, UTSA and even Baylor these days. It’s time for Aggies to have access to some of the best burgers and fries on the planet without a 100 mile road trip being involved.”
In response to the facebook post, College Station Mayor Karl Mooney posted the following: “They are already looking to be in College Station — no petition needed.”
Given the source, it’s a safe bet we’ll be eating Double-Doubles and Animal Style Fries after a night on Northgate or after an Aggie victory on Kyle Field in the near future. Eating a 4×4 in your 4×4 will soon be a thing you can do on Texas Ave.
was founded in Baldwin Park, California in 1948 by Harry Snyder and his wife Esther Snyder. The chain is currently headquartered in Irvine, California and has slowly expanded outside Southern California into the rest of California, as well as into Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and Oregon. The current owner is Lynsi Snyder, the Snyders’ only grandchild. As the chain has expanded, it has opened several distribution centers in addition to its original Baldwin Park location. The new facilities, located in Lathrop, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Draper, Utah; and Dallas, Texas will provide for potential future expansion into other parts of the country.
In-N-Out Burger has resisted franchising its operations or going public; one reason is the prospect of quality or customer consistency being compromised by excessively rapid business growth. The company’s business practices have been noted for employee-centered personnel policies. For example, In-N-Out is one of the few fast food chains in the United States to pay its employees more than state and federally mandated minimum wage guidelines – starting at $11 per hour in Texas.
