In-N-Out Burger opened its first Colorado restaurants in 2020. The restaurant is expected to take about 8 months to build if plans are approved.
TIMNATH, Colo. — In-N-Out Burger would like to build another restaurant in northern Colorado.
The California-based fast food chain has filed development plans for a new location in Timnath, near Fort Collins and Interstate 25.
The proposed 3,860-square-foot burger restaurant would be located at the Ladera subdivision along the I-25 Frontage Road.
Concept plans for the restaurant were filed with the Town of Timnath in May 2023 and a site development plan was submitted last month.
The site development plan includes plans for a restaurant, drive thru, 52 proposed parking spaces, and other site improvements. The restaurant is expected to take about eight months to build if plans are approved.
“Our team continues to make progress on a proposed site in Timnath. At this stage, we are in the development application review phase, so it’s still too early to say when, or even if, we will be able to open a restaurant there,” said In-N-Out Burger’s Vice President of Store Development Mike Abbate. “Once we do begin construction on a new location, it usually takes us eight to nine months to build a restaurant and open it for business.”
“We know the Timnath area is a wonderful community, and we are excited about the prospect of opening a new location there to better serve our customers in the near future.”
The new In-N-Out Burger would be the second in northern Colorado following a Loveland restaurant that opened in November.
In-N-Out Burger opened its first Colorado locations in Aurora and Colorado Springs in November 2020.
Since then, Colorado restaurants have also opened in Denver, Lone Tree, Lakewood, Thornton, Castle Rock and Loveland. It also has a 97,900-square-foot distribution facility in Colorado Springs.
In-N-Out Burger previously launched a Cookout Truck in Colorado that will bring burgers and side items to your private event as a catering option.
In addition to serving parts of Denver and Colorado Springs, In-N-Out has launched the Cookout Truck in parts of Los Angeles including parts of Ventura, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties in California as well as Dallas, Texas.
In-N-Out said the trucks are fully self-contained units, equipped with generators and operated and staffed completely by In-N-Out Burger workers. The trucks serve the Double-Double, cheeseburger, hamburger, grilled cheese, chips and fountain drinks. The burger chain notes that french fries and shakes cannot be prepared on the trucks.
In-N-Out Burger is known for its double-double burger and animal-style fries. In-N-Out Burger currently has more than 330 fast-food locations throughout several western states including California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Texas and Oregon.
In-N-Out was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder and is still owned and operated by the Snyder family and none of its locations are franchised.
