SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – One of America’s most beloved fast food restaurants is celebrating its birthday on Monday.
A favorite of high-end chefs and millions of Californians alike, In-N-Out Burger is turning 70.
The burger chain was founded in Baldwin Park back on Oct. 22, 1948. To mark the occasion, the restaurant will be releasing its 2019 t-shirt collection.
Known for its simple menu but high-quality ingredients, In-N-Out’s fan base includes chefs like Gordon Ramsay and Anthony Bourdain. Just this past year, the chain was voted – again – as America’s favorite quick-service restaurant by Market Force.
In-N-Out Burger was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder and is still family owned.
The chain is known for its policy of slow, deliberate growth that keeps the restaurants family-owned instead of franchised.
There are now more than 300 In-N-Out restaurants spread across six states.
