    I know there's a lot of In-N-Out fans here.

    Pretty interesting story about the chain, and the woman who now controls it:

    How I wish there was one within driving distance of my house.

    There was a guy at my high school who had an In N Out Burger bumper sticker on his car...

    I'm sure the California natives here know which letters were blacked out... :D
  5. While running the chain she and her husband (No. 3) are drag racers.

    Yup, and she did it the old-fashioned way. She inherited it.

    “Like most kids, or second or third generations of a very wealthy family, I don’t know that she has restaurant blood in her veins, or if she’s a trust fund baby.”

    Even though it would go against everything her grandmother would have wanted, I hope she goes for the money and expands across the country... :D

    Yay for how In N Out has done it. Most restaurant chains start as someone's dream, then that person, who takes the windfall that being bought out by a company brings. Then that company expands wildly, then the chain gets bought out or transferred among companies and partnerships several times, losing stores and quality along the way, until someone acquires it just to kill it

    I've heard that some of the restaurants outside of California aren't as good. I've been to the one in Vegas and it's every bit as good as the ones in California. I have a friend who has been to one of the ones in Utah and Arizona and said there's a bit of a dropoff.

    Married three times by 30?


    Hey, Creosote, is she on pace for your record?

    For a piece of a billion bucks, I'd hit it.

    Aw, who am I kidding? I'd hit it for a burger and fries.
