Our interests piqued, we contacted In-N-Out for more info about the pop-up and learned that the company -- which famously hasn't expanded much beyond the West Coast -- has no plans to make Cali-style gluttony (including the distinctly L.A. concoction of carb-free iceberg lettuce wrapped double cheeseburgers with animal sauce) a reality for our friends across the pond. In a response to our questions, the company's VP said the following:
We have done events like this before in other countries and they are just one part of our efforts to promote and expand our brand as well as determine the best way to continue reaching out to customers around the world. These events also help to protect the In-N-Out Burger brand in important markets like London. We do not have any immediate plans to open permanent restaurants there but these special events will help us make future decisions.Apparently the chain has opened pop-ups in places like Singapore though no word on what their next destination will be. A strip-mall in Kyrgyzstan, perhaps?
