When most people think of the fast-food restaurant company, In-N-Out, they usually imagine the palm trees, but most of all, California. When the news came out that In-N-Out would be spreading to Tennessee, I’m sure many were appalled by it. “In-N-Out? In Tennessee?” was perhaps a thought that went through many Californians’ heads. Though one would argue that In-N-Out is a bit of a western American symbol (at least in my opinion), I feel like it’s more affiliated with California, especially Southern California. “We are very excited to provide Tennesseans with our quality burgers, fries, and shakes,” says Lynsi Snyder, who is the In-N-Out owner and president. Apparently, In-N-Out has been hearing requests from Tennesseans to expand to the state for a while now.
Lynsi Snyder also says that they (the company) look very much forward to serving Tennessee in years to come, as well as becoming a part of the wonderful communities in the Volunteer State. The new restaurants in Tennessee are planned to first open in the Nashville region in the year 2026, this is according to the family-owned company. In the plans, there is an “Eastern territory office” that is sure to be headquartered in Franklin, Tennessee, just on the outskirts of Nashville. Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee was the one who broke the news about the restaurant chain’s expansion to the state. Lee stated: “It means a lot of opportunity and a lot of jobs for a lot of Tennesseans,” and added: “Welcome, In-N-Out Burger, you’re going to love it here.” Currently, In-N-Out has restaurants in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Texas, Oregon and Colorado.
