Marking In-N-Out Burger‘s long-awaited latest expansion across the United States, the California chain’s first Colorado location was met with a ridiculous line-up.
This past Friday, the grand opening of the Aurora, Colorado location saw people waiting upwards of 12 hours to get their hands on a Double-Double, Animal-Style. Following the CDC COVID-19 guidelines, customers were required to order via drive-thru causing a massive pile-up that wrapped around the mall where the newly opened In-N-Out is located. The commotion was so big that the Aurora Police department had to manage the line-up, asking people to be patient and maybe support other restaurants.
Despite updating its Twitter to deter more people from lining up, the line grew considerably stretching around the mall twice and reaching an estimated 14-hour wait proving the power of the In-N-Out Burger.
For decades fans across the world have wondered why the popular California establishment hasn’t expanded in the same way its competitors have. The answer is, the company refuses to sell frozen patties, in a move to ensure that customers are only eating the highest-quality meat, In-N-Out only opens locations within 300 miles of its production facility and distribution center. So far, In-N-Out only has facilities in Lathrop, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Draper, Utah; Dallas, Texas; and now Colorado Springs, Colorado.
