Hey, you there! Yea...YOU! This is for you, BYU Students.
In-N-Out is the famous gourmet fast food chain sensation that has swept the West Coast. Founded in 1948 by Harry and Esther Snyder, In-N-Out has been an establishment devoted to the quality of their food and the satisfaction of their customers since the beginning. Although some may argue that In-N-Out is a restaurant with just a boring menu and a fanatic following: In-N-Out is the best dining experience for BYU students because of their fresh ingredients, strong work ethic , and lowered prices compared to other gourmet fast food restaurants.
“Quality you can taste”. This is In-N-Outs motto and so; of course, the ingredients of the food are vital. All of In-N-Out’s ingredients are 100% fresh. The beef patties are made directly by In-N-Out from the best cattle to be found, packaged in the business-owned packaging plant in Baldwin Park, CA. 100% pure beef with no preservatives added to it, this is just one of the reasons the burgers from In-N-Out spark millions of people’s taste buds. On top of that amazing patty, In-N-Out hand leafs all of their lettuce. They pick the best tomatoes they can find, and ship in the freshest potatoes straight from the farms. Employees make the special “secret sauce” (special Thousand Island dressing) right in the store, fresh every day. Every bun is made from sponge dough (the old fashioned way) and is toasted to perfection. My favorite part about dining out at In-N-Out is that first bite into the burger made from all of these fresh ingredients. It really is “Quality you can taste.”
Not only does In-N-Out have the freshest ingredients, but they also have a strong work ethic that makes eating at their establishment enjoyable. With high standards for employees making such fresh food, the company treats their employee’s right. Starting wage for restaurant workers is 10$s! The reason for this high wage the company says is because “They are important to us!” This is part of the reason In-N-Out is so successful. Employment opportunities are always filled at In-N-Out because of the high wages, paid vacation, flexible work schedule, and free food. Happy employees at In-N-Out mean more quality food and service for customers. So, when a BYU student has had a long day of class and homework, at night they can go to In-N-Out and know that they will be treated right. Workers at In-N-Out are happy and show this in the way that they respect all their customers! There is no place that treats their customers better. Customers are given their food as fast as possible, with always a smile and “have a good night” accompanying it! This is one of the reasons why BYU students should always eat at In-N-Out. Just last Saturday night, my friends and I were absolutely starving. So, a car load of BYU college students, all hungry as hounds, pulled into the In-N-Out parking lot at midnight. Now, the employees I’m sure were tired from their Saturday dinner rush, but they still served us with all the respect and attention that they would have shown to any other customer, at any other time of the day. This strong work-ethic is just one of the reasons BYU students should eat at In-N-Out.
Along with their work ethic, In-N-Out also serves its customers by keeping their prices for their burgers, fries, and shakes low compared to other gourmet fast food places. At 5 Guys, a national burger chain that is said to rival In-N-Out, to get just a cheeseburger is $5.79. At In-N-Out, a cheeseburger is just $4.12! This price difference is huge for a BYU student, who is always looking for the best bang for their buck. Just look at the difference in price of fries. A regular order of fries from In-N-Out is $1.35; whereas, 5 Guys fries are $2.69. In-N-Out also offers real ice cream milkshakes, made with the freshest cream to be found. 5 Guys does not even offer milkshakes on their menu. In-N-Out works with the freshest ingredients, keeps their customers happy, AND keeps their burgers more than a dollar cheaper than the other competition. This is what I’m talking about! Cheap is the way we do things here in college, and this is why In-N-Out is a clear choice for a BYU college student.
In-N-Out is the best choice for dining out for BYU students. They have the freshest ingredients, a work ethic that rivals even us BYU students, and lower prices than other gourmet fast food places. BYU students may have to drive just a little ways to get there, but the small amount of gas is worth the delicious and inexpensive food. We should support this business because of what they stand for and the quality food that they produce. In my experience with In-N-Out burgers, there is nothing better than to walk into to that homey atmosphere, and order my standard 2 cheeseburgers, no onion, fries, and medium drink. Then, wait just a couple minutes (salivating the whole while) to have an awesome employee call my order number. Then, that first bite into the burger--priceless.
