First Colorado In-N-Out Burger won’t open until at least 2020, report says

An In-N-Out Burger won't open in Colorado until late 2020 at the earliest -- and at this point, it's not clear how many other restaurants will follow.

At least until 2020, you’ll still have to book a flight or drive the 9 hours to St. George, Utah to get your hands on a double-double if you live in Denver.

The California-based burger chain – which has a cult following – announced  last year it is headed to Colorado and will build a distribution center in Colorado Springs.

Now, we’re getting more details about what that will entail, thanks to a report by the Colorado Springs Gazette, which sifted through documents.

Construction of the distribution center, the Gazette reports, is slated for the spring.

The report says it won’t finish until summer 2020 – and the first restaurant, which according to the Gazette is slated to be at the corner of Interquest and Voyager, will open in late 2020 at the earliest.

Once that happens, Colorado will be one of only seven states with an In-N-Out.

The rest are: California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Texas.

At this point, it’s not clear how many In-N-Outs will come to Colorado.
