In recent months, the rumor mill has been grinding out juicy gossip that In-N-Out Burger will expand its empire into Texas. Looks like those rumors were well-founded.
Last week, Nancy Luna of the Orange County Register reported that she received confirmation that Southern California’s most beloved burger chain is indeed seeking approval to open fast-food units in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
â€˜Yes, we are working on a few locations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth market and Garland is one of them,â€™ In-N-Out executive Carl Van Fleet told Luna, referring to the Dallas suburb. â€˜While we are very enthusiastic about the opportunities there, our Dallas area plans are still in the early stages.â€™ Van Fleet, vice president of planning and development at In-N-Out, said the 1,500-mile move to Texas will force the chain to build a â€˜new patty production facility and distribution center.â€™
