It looks like we could soon be enjoying In-N-Out’s famous burgers right here in Florida, at least that’s Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis’ plan.
During an interview with Fox News earlier this week, the state’s elected chief financial officer said he was trying to entice the famous burger chain to leave California and relocate to Florida as In-N-Out continues to refuse to comply with California vaccine mandates.
The chain which owns 378 burger shops in the southwest and the West Coast has seen a number of its locations shut down temporarily after refusing to follow local ordinances that in California require indoor diners to show either proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result.
Patronis told Fox News he had written to In-N-Out owner Lynsi Snyder to offer his sympathy for the difficulties her company is currently facing and to invite her to relocate In-N-Out to the Sunshine State. “What I can offer you in my commitment on behalf of the state of Florida is you’re going to be in a mandate-free state. We love to see businesses prosper and flourish in our state…From the bottom of my heart this is a full invitation that we will do anything we need to enjoy your product in our state,” said Patronis.
Snyder is yet to reply to Patronis’ offer, meanwhile, the CFO has taken his campaign to Facebook where he shared excerpts of his letter to Snyder and his plans to bring In-N-Out to Florida. What do you think? Would you like to see this famous burger joint opening here in Miami and enjoy one of their iconic burgers?
