First covered in the Coloradoan, the California-based fast casual In-N-Out Burger chain will continue building out its Colorado footprint with plans to move into the vacant property at 1450 Fall River Dr. in Loveland. The building, formerly home to Mimi’s Cafe, was abandoned for years. In-N-Out purchased the property on Feb. 17, for $1.3 million, according to the paper.

Enthusiasm for the iconic burger restaurant caused traffic backups when the eatery first opened in Aurora in November, 2020 (per the Coloradoan). People queued up for up to 14 hours to get their hands on one of the classic cheeseburgers. Serving up burgers, fries, and shakes since 1948, fervor for the Southern California restaurant’s simple menu has resulted to the company remaining true to the fresh product patrons have demanded for nearly 75 years. Each patty is made in In-N-Out production facilities that process chuck meat from premium cattle into housemade patties (per In-N-Out).

The restaurant claims to not even use microwaves or frozen, pre-packaged food as it delivers fresh supplies to each location. This includes “hand-leafed” lettuce, quality onions, juicy tomatoes, real American cheese, and fresh-baked buns from “slow-rising” sponge dough. Cooked fresh to order, In-N-Out has grown via a resistance to change.

This dedication to repeatable recipes has not stopped the popular restaurant from expanding. After building in states throughout the West through the beginning of the century, the company agreed to build its first restaurants east of Texas in 2018. The first Tennessee In-N-Out is expected to open sometime in 2026 (per Yahoo).

Construction has not yet started on the new Loveland location. In-N-Out build-outs take about eight to nine months, assistant vice president of real estate and development Mike Abbate told the Coloradoan. Look out for the backhoes and bulldozers to break ground sometime in the next few months.
