In-N-Out don’t want none of your business unless it’s got (good) buns, hun.
The acclaimed fast food chain has temporarily ceased operations in all its 37 Texas locations due to an undisclosed problem with its burger buns.
In-N-Out’s Executive Vice President Bob Lang Jr. said in a press statement, “At In-N-Out Burgers, we have always served the highest quality food with no compromise. We recently discovered that our buns in Texas do not meet the quality standards that we demand.”
Lang assured that the quality of the buns did not raise any food safety concerns. “We decided to close all of our Texas stores until we are confident that we can serve our normal high-quality bun.”
The brand’s Texas outlets include restaurants in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antorio. The burger buns are likely delivered by In-N-Out’s own distribution center and meat commissary.
The stores were supposed to resume operations by Tuesday, but they remain to be closed and don’t have a set reopening date.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause for our customers,” Lang added.
