In-n-Out Burger opens in Tucson
IRVINE, CA -- In 1948, Harry Snyder developed In-N-Out Burger, California's first "drive-thru" hamburger stand. Today, hamburgers are still made-to-order, shakes are still made with real ice cream and In-N-Out associates are still treated like family.
Starting April 24, 2007, In-N-Out hamburgers, shakes and fries will be available at our newest location in Tucson.
Andy Castaneda, who has been a veteran of In-N-Out for 11 years, will manage the new restaurant, located at 3711 Broadway Boulevard. The 3,220 square-foot restaurant will employ approximately 50 In-N-Out Burger Associates.
There will be one drive-thru lane, with indoor accommodations for 70 customers. The new In-N-Out Burger will be open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and until 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
As with all locations, fresh ingredients will be supplied to the store from the In-N-Out warehouse. Hamburger patties are made from 100% pure American beef. Whole chucks are boned and ground by In-N-Out's own butchers. All patties are produced and delivered fresh throughout the week to the stores and are never frozen. French fries are made from fresh, whole potatoes and are hand diced.
In-N-Out was started as California's first drive-thru and has locations throughout California, Nevada, and Arizona. In-N-Out was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder and is still owned and operated by the Snyder family. None of the units are franchised. The corporate offices are located at 4199 Campus Drive, Suite 900, Irvine, CA, 92612.
