Good, cheap burgers, coming to Colorado with a double helping of hype in a couple of years.
The devotee of west coast burger chain In-N-Out Burger
will have to wait a little longer to get their 3x3 animal style burgers with fries well done. According to an email we've received from Denny Warnick, the California-based company's VP of Operations, the previously announced distribution facility and office building
in northern Springs, plus the state's first In-N-Out restaurants, are still a few years out.
Here's what Warnick sent us:
The planning and design work continues to move forward for our facilities and restaurant in Colorado Springs. The city of Colorado Springs has been a great partner on the project.
It is great to be able to report progress being made, although we are still likely a couple of years away from serving our first Double-Double in Colorado. We are very much looking forward to that day, and we appreciate our customers in Colorado that have shared their anticipation with us as well.
So that's where we are. The chain's devotees have more time to study the secret
, and its myriad detractors can continue to talk about how burgers that are roughly twice as expensive
are better. We might also suggest patronizing a local option
, at least for now.
