Another In-N-Out Burger Tour

Filed under: — stan @ 8:45 pm

After our visit to the In-N-Out Burger museum a few weeks ago, I was looking at the In-N-Out Burger web site, and in particular, their page about the history of the company. And from that, I put together another little In-N-Out-themed tour.

The first sight is the In-N-Out on Foothill in Pasadena. It turns out that that’s the oldest In-N-Out still operating in its original building.

They currently have 335 locations in six states, and of those, only five do not have a drive-through window. And it turns out that one of them is in Glendale. So that was the second sight.

Another tidbit about the company was the the founder, Harry Snyder, was a big fan of the movie, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. So beginning in 1972, he started having a pair of crossed palm trees planted in front of new In-N-Out restaurants. He said that In-N-Out was his treasure, so the trees were his nod to the “Big ‘W’” where the treasure was buried in the movie.

So that was our theme for today.

45 miles.
