LONE TREE, Colo. — In-N-Out Burger is ready to debut its third Colorado location.
The California-based chain said it plans to open its newest restaurant in Lone Tree on Monday.
The 3,867-square-foot Colorado establishment will open at 10 a.m. on East Westview Road next to Park Meadows Mall.
In-N-Out expects the restaurant in Lone Tree to be so busy that designs for the drive-thru lane plan for it to accommodate 26 cars at a time.
The chain has announced the Lone Tree location will feature a covered patio with outdoor seating for 20 guests, and indoor seating for 74 guests, although onsite dining is currently unavailable.
The City of Lone Tree has developed a plan to deal with traffic during the restaurant's opening and for the weeks ahead.
For the restaurant's opening, Lone Tree is asking people heading to In-N-Out to get off Interstate 25 at County Line Road and turn on Yosemite Street to get in line.
For those trying to access other businesses, Lone Tree recommends people trying to get to Park Meadows mall avoid most of Yosemite Street and instead use access points on Park Meadows Center Drive, County Line Road, Chester Street and Westview Road.
Robert Dumont, an 18-year veteran of In-N-Out, will manage the Lone Tree restaurant. In-N-Out said the Lone Tree location will employ approximately 80 workers with a starting wage of $14.50 per hour.
In November 2019, Lone Tree City council voted 5-0 to approve construction for the Park Meadows In-N-Out restaurant.
The space, near East County Line Road and Yosemite Street, was previously occupied by Suds Factory Car Wash & Auto Detailing Center. The car wash closed its doors in January 2020 to prepare for the new construction.
In-N-Out opened its first Colorado locations in December 2020 in Aurora and Colorado Springs. The chain also constructed a 97,900-square-foot distribution facility in Colorado Springs, which will anchor further expansion in the region.
The famous burger joint is known for its double-double burger and animal-style fries. In-N-Out Burger currently has more than 300 fast-food locations throughout several western states including Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Texas.
