Support opening In-N-Out in Downtown Santa Cruz
An In-N-Out location in Downtown Santa Cruz would be a lively and successful addition to the county of Santa Cruz. Many students who crave the burger chain have to resort to taking their business to San Jose or elsewhere. Alternatives such as the Five Guys chain or other local restaurants like Betty’s Burgers often are too expensive for students to regularly enjoy and don’t match In-N-Out’s unique flavor. Clearly, an In-N-Out would not have an issue with revenue considering the over 19,000 young students, many of whom grew up eating the California-based burger chain. Despite the fact that small businesses would have to compete, many owners, such as Betty’s Burgers manager Seth Landig, maintain that they would still be competitive since they still have a local audience. Social media pages have garnered thousands of followers in favor of establishing an In-N-Out in the Santa Cruz county.
