Is there any reason why IN-N-OUT Burgers cannot expand and open at least few locations on the major cities on the East Coast such as in NYC?

IN-N-OUT is number 1 burger chain restaurant by far, always huge lines, great quality, amazing taste & cheap!

Won't happen, at least not in this lifetime. Pretty sure this is in the wrong forum, too.

Firstly, In-N-Out is family-owned; they don't let anyone franchise their restaurants. Secondly, the food is delivered fresh to each restaurant location a day, from their meat plants. There aren't any located on the East, only California and Texas, I believe. Clearly they're not going to be able to make their trips East in one day from California and Texas.

In-N-Out doesn't care too much about expansion. They've been around decades, and they're JUST now opening locations in Texas, a Southern state. What they need to do is open more locations in California. We need one in DTLA ASAP.

Do we really need more fast food, in an already grossly oversaturated market? Aren't there enough places to buy garbage to hork down our gullets?

We've got more fast food choices in this country than we do time (or desire) to try it all. It's depressing, really. Find the time to cook your own meals, people!

In-N-out is great, but backyard burgers, checkers, and bojangles all located in the southeast exclusively are all better. In-N-Out is top dog on the west coast but would be 2nd or 3rd in the south, if that.

Part of In-N-Out's appeal is its exclusivity i.e. it's not available in all parts of the USA. Therefore I can't see management making the decision to expand to the East Coast. On a side note, I never understood the big deal about In-N-Out. The burgers are alright, better than McDonalds and Burger King, but they're nothing to write home about imo.

We have them in Arizona too. There aren't ever lines out the door like some people describe.

They're really a California craze. Even with the locations in other states, Californians are the craziest about In-N-Out.

I'm sure I can make a better burger every single time. No thanks. It's a fast food joint...

If the market for fast food was oversaturated, the number of fast-food restaurants would be decreasing. And fast food isn't necessarly terrible for you either. You don't have to eat it every day, and you don't have to "super-size" your meal either. At McDonald's, a double cheeseburger with small fries and a small soft drink has about 700 calories altogether, which is only one third of most people's recommended daily caloric intake.

As for In-N-Out Burger, they're my favorite fast-food restaurant. You can actually taste the quality, especially in the fries, which employees can be seen cutting from fresh potatoes in the back of the kitchen.
