The untold story of the renegade burger chain that evokes a
passionate following unlike any other
In fast-food corporate America, In-N-Out Burger stands apart.
Begun in a tiny shack in the shadow of World War II, this
family-owned chain has steadfastly refused to franchise or be sold.
Over time, In-N-Out Burger has become nothing less than a cultural
institution that can lay claim to an insanely loyal following.
Stacy Perman''s In-N-Out Burger is the inside story
behind a real American success story-not only a tale of a unique
and profitable business but also of a family''s struggle to
maintain a sustainable pop empire against the industry it helped
pioneer. A keenly observed narrative that explores the
transformation of a California fad into an enduring cult of
popularity, it is also the story of the conflicted, secretive, and
ultimately tragic Snyder family, who cooked a billion burgers and
hooked a zillion fans.
