Burger chain Eyes Washington state location

In-N-Out Burger hopes to expand to Washington state, the company told USA Today on Friday.

Although In-N-Out has been in Oregon for nearly 10 years, it only expanded to Idaho in December, USA TODAY previously reported.

The company soon filed a development application for a location in Washington, Mike Abbate, vice president of store development at In-N-Out, told USA Today. “However, it is still very early in the development process.”

The target city for the new site is Ridgefield, north of Vancouver in Clark County. Abed said construction will take eight to nine months once building permits are obtained. An opening date has not been announced.

As the company works with the city to pursue permits and approvals, Abbate said, “there is hope for a positive outcome.”

City comments about In-N-Out coming to town

Not only will Ridgefield “work closely with In-N-Out to create enough row spaces to avoid backups on the roadways, but the design of the building will be unique, upscale and complimentary to Ridgefield,” the city manager said. Steve Stewart told KOIN-TV.
