In-N-Out Burger has closed all indoor dining of the restaurants in Contra Costa County, California, instead of complying with the county’s vaccine mandate. After the closures of some In-N-Out Burger’s, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis appealed to the CEO of the restaurant to come to Florida.

No Indoor Dining

In-N-Out has closed all indoor dining in the restaurants in Contra Costa County. At the restaurants, though, you can still have drive-thru and take-out. [1]

Why Close Down?

The reason In-N-Out shut down the indoor dining was because they did not want to comply with the county’s vaccine mandate. The mandate required that all customers be checked of their COVID-19 vaccine status. This course of action comes after an In-N-Out Burger in San Francisco was closed temporarily and another one in Pleasant Hill was closed indefinitely because they were not checking for proof of vaccination.

“Come To The Sunshine State”

After the closing of the restaurants, Florida’s chief financial officer, Jimmy Patronis, wrote a letter to the In-N-Out CEO appealing him to move to Florida.

The Letter

In the letter to In-N-Out CEO Lynsi Snyder, Patronis said he was impressed by her courage.

First, I want you to know I’m impressed by your courage to oppose this government overreach and I hope your story inspires other business owners across the country to do the same. [2]

Patronis went on to say that his motto is “Florida is for Winners,” and that he would be honored to start a new In-N-Out story in the Sunshine State.

I’d be honored to introduce you to our team and help you find the perfect place to start a new In-N-Out story right her in Florida. My motto is “Florida is for Winners” and I have no doubt that your team can win here… [3]
