Mega Popular Fast Food chain to open its first location in Tennessee soon
Unveiled city planning documents offer a glimpse into the potential location of Tennessee’s inaugural In-N-Out Burger restaurant.
A public notice issued by the City of Franklin indicates that the California-based burger chain intends to construct a restaurant near the intersection of Goose Creek Bypass (Highway 248) and Village Plains Boulevard. Conceptual renderings of the proposed development depict a 4,000-square-foot In-N-Out Burger establishment serving as the anchor tenant, accompanied by approximately 90,000 square feet of office space.
In January, In-N-Out, in conjunction with Governor Bill Lee, announced plans to bring their signature Animal Style Fries to Tennessee. The company intends to establish restaurants in and around Nashville and Williamson County, where it plans to invest over $125 million in constructing its eastern U.S. headquarters.
Earlier this year, In-N-Out disclosed plans to commence construction on its 100,000-square-foot Franklin office building by late 2024, with completion targeted for 2026. The exact opening date for the Franklin restaurant remains unspecified.
A community meeting scheduled for December 5 will provide an opportunity for residents residing near the proposed site to voice their concerns and receive updates. Following the meeting, the restaurant plans will undergo a standard city approval process. Founded 75 years ago, In-N-Out Burger has rapidly spread across the US, serving its own take on fast food burgers. However, until now it has not ventured into Tennessee.
