When the In-N-Out location is complete, expect it to be more than capable of handling the crowds it will likely draw. 

The dining room will have space for 69 people and a covered outdoor patio will seat another 80. If the hoopla surrounding the arrival of In-N-Out’s northernmost location bears out, the restaurant will likely need every one of them. 

“If we are fortunate to have a busy opening, we will be prepared with enough associates and fresh product to give our customers a great experience,” said Carl Arena, vice president of real estate and development for the company. 

Construction at the site began earlier this month and a large section of parking lot north of the hotel has been removed to make way for the burger joint. 

Arena declined to give an expected opening date, but said construction and preparation for opening typically takes five to six months. 

Aside from “animal style” burgers, Arena said the In-N-Out Foundation works “hard to assist all communities where we do business to become stronger, safer and better places to live.”

The In-N-Out Foundation focuses its resources on organizations that work with homeless youth, youth in foster care, adoption and youth survivors of domestic violence.

“In addition, we provide grants through our Slave 2 Nothing Foundation, make corporate donations and engage our associates with opportunities to volunteer in their community,” Arena said.
