The president of In-N-Out credits the chain’s success to more than just burgers.






In a new interview, Lynsi Snyder – whose grandparents founded the first of the restaurants in 1948 – opened up about the adversities she faced in her earlier years, and how they ultimately helped her to shape her future with the company.

Snyder, 37, recently told the Christian Post  about how she strives to maintain the success of her family’s iconic chain with a little help from her faith.

"I’ve been the one to hurt, and I’ve been hurt,” Snyder said of her three rocky marriages, one of which she described as abusive.






“I have gained insight and growth through both sides of the coin,” she added before stressing her method of seeking “healing time with Jesus” before embarking on new relationships.

Snyder, 37, also lost her father in 1999 at the age of 17, a tragedy she partially dealt with by abusing drugs and alcohol, the Christian Post reports.

“I finally found that the deep need in my heart can only be filled by Jesus and my identity in Him,” she told the outlet

is also encouraged Snyder to found something called the Army of Love ministry to “unify the body of Christ into soldiers” and “unite various ministries.”

“The battle over souls is being waged in the heavenly,” she told the Christian Post. “We want to be on the front lines of this battle to save the lost and bring fallen Christians back to their first love.”

Snyder, who is now the owner and president of the chain – and became a certified billionaire by her 35th birthday, according to  Forbes  – says she’s very happy with the company and the people who work for it. They appear to be fond of her too, as she was recently ranked third in Glassdoor’s annual list of the 100 best CEO’s by employee approval, with a rating of  99 percent .

She’s also keeping up a tradition started by her uncle, Richard Snyder, who first put “John 3:16” on the bottom of the chain’s cups after rekindling his own relationship with his faith.

“It’s a family business and will always be, and that’s a family touch,” she said, explaining that it was actually her idea to put other verses (Proverbs 24:16 and Luke 6:35) to the fry containers and hot beverage cups.

Snyder has previously said that the quality of the overall In-N-Out experience also remains essential to the business’ success.

In an interview with  Forbes  in 2018, Snyder alleged that the quality of the experience – coupled with the fact that In-N-Out isn’t everywhere – are what make it so in-demand. In-N-Out has locations in California, Nevada, Texas, Arizona, Oregon and Utah.

“I don’t see us stretched across the whole U.S. I don’t see us in every state. Take Texas — draw a line up and just stick to the left. That’s in my lifetime,” Snyder said of her plans for the family franchise.

“I like that we’re sought after when someone’s coming into town. I like that we’re unique. That we’re not on every corner. You put us in every state and it takes away some of its luster.”

Snyder originally became president of her family’s chain in 2010, after her late father, late uncle and brother-in-law served in the position. In-N-Out is currently worth upwards of $3 billion, according to recent estimates.

I don't think it's an accident that those two chains are consistently the best liked fast food outlets, and #1 and #2 in customer service (they actually go back and forth in polls). Great customer service is intentional and when you see it in a chain, it has to come from the top.

Serving heart attack food is a battle for souls? Who knew that burgers were your first love? How bizarre, to equate religion with a hamburger. French toast, maybe ... but burgers?

From what I've heard, In N Out burgers are very overrated, but the Hollywood types made them famous, and now everyone thinks they're a Hollywood star if they, too, eat an In N Out burger.

Good to see that you're trying so hard to emulate the left.

Meh. It's a matter of personal preference, I suppose (and I don't think burgers have the fanatical fans that barbecue has, who will spend a half hour arguing over the best barbecue). I haven't personally tried one, but people I know who have say they're good, but not worthy of the nationwide hype; plenty of others are just as good. They're a huge Hollywood fad and I'm not sure I trust 90 pound actresses to tell me what the best burger is.

I have a local pub that makes one of the best burgers I've ever had. On the rare occasion when I eat a burger, I get it there. Burgers with short rib and brisket mixed in are just heavenly.

From what I've heard, In N Out burgers are very overrated,

I agree. There was an In N Out burger not far from where I once lived and I tried it a couple of times. The meat was over done and tough, the buns were very dried out and the tomatoes were cut so thin you could see through them. However, there sure was a heap of lettuce. 

The first time I tried it I thought it was just a slow day and so I decided to try it again. The second time was no better than the first, except, there was even more lettuce. I didn't even bother to finish the burger and never went back.

A year or so later I tried another In N Out and although the buns weren't as dry, the meat was also over cooked and tough, and paper thin tomatoes. But, there wasn't as much lettuce, however, what there was of it was hard. That was the last time I tried In N Out. Waste of money IMO.

That's too bad. There are three of them in Manhattan but none anywhere else in New York state it seems. And if you don't judge a restaurant on the quality of food, and courteous infallible service as important, you are missing out on some of the best in the country. As a matter of fact, I believe they are #1 in fast food. I guess sometimes ideology ruins the view.

I have a tough time with their fries. They have a good flavor for the reasons you mentioned, but  for me, they don't fry them right. You can order them well done, which helps a little, but they just don't nail the proper blend of crispy outside, tender inside. I don't what it is. Maybe it's the oil. Maybe it's the temperature.

I say Merry Christmas and I sing God Bless America, but I'll be damned if I'm going to perform my faith and patriotism for anyone, much less for their burger.

I have to admit, when I used to eat red meat I liked In-n-Out. Haven't eaten there in years now though and it had nothing to do with their politics. We'll see if their current President's desire to push her personal faith instead of just pushing good product will have any effect on the companies bottom line here in California. Unfortunately I predict this public faith stance will have an adverse effect on investors. Perhaps they will make up for it with a large evangelical surge of supporters, but it's certainly a gamble. I doubt "Jefferson City" will be able to replace the lost business in Los Angeles and San Francisco this decision might produce.

To ignore the fate of others is an act of callous disregard or indifference

You pretend you're not telling anyone what to believe, but you're basically threatening them with your evil boogeyman ... which is rather laughable to anyone who's read the bible and isn't a fundie. Thinking you can convince moral people to worship evil is silly, and most Christians don't worship the evil god that fundies believe in.

Stating what Jesus taught is not threatening anyone, especially if they don't believe that Jesus is God.

Secondly, I'm not a Fundamentalist.  Fundamentalists believe that Pentecostals and Charismatics are heretics.

You believe it's true, so you intend it as a threat.

Secondly, I'm not a Fundamentalist

I thought you believed in a strict, literal interpretation of the bible - which would make you a fundamentalist (there are many different sects of fundies).

Fundamentalists believe that Pentecostals and Charismatics are heretics.

And you could well believe that Catholics are heretics. 33,000 Christian sects - each of them convinced that they alone know the one true meaning. If there were a god, it would be laughing its ass off at human attempts to define it and worship it.

You greatly exaggerate the total number of different Protestant denominations out there.  Many are independent sunsets of s much larger group with almost identical beliefs.  Some are in almost total agreement but emphasize some key point while another might key on something else in their worship yet all largely believe the same thing.

Also there were many Protestant reformers protesting what the Church of Rome had become since the founding of the Christian church.  Many denominations named after the reformer they followed went as far as he did and didn’t seek further light or newer understanding of what was already in the Bible.  Thus some mainline Protestant denominations only moved so far from what Rome was then while others followed solo scriptures or The Bible alone incrementally further.   I’m not for the record saying or implying that the Rome we see today is presently the same as what it was then and there are certainly saved Christians within it now.

You disagree with pretty much everyone else who's ever given them a review, then. Not surprising - as long as someone's preaching at you, they could serve you cardboard and you'd rave about it.

Ok...

Let's put this to bed already.

It's a personal choice to go to IN-N-OUT or any other fast food place.

Me?  I prefer making my own burgers at home.   But, if I'm on the road going somewhere and don't want to have a long drawn out meal, I'll go to either a Chic-fil-A or a Wendys (yeah another Christian business owner) and keep to my road schedule.  Currently, there are no IN-N-OUT that are convenient to me and driving 45 minutes to get one is ridiculous.   I might stop the next time I'm headed north in I-35 towards Dallas and then points east.

Having said that, I applaud the people operating IN-N-OUT.   They are doing what they believe in and will obviously continue to do what they believe in while operating their business.  They're not twisting the arms of anyone to buy their product.

I like Wendy’s too.  The 4 for $4 meal is a good value and I trade out the fries for a side Caesars salad.  I own some shares of and like the Yum Brands (Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut) places as well.

The scripture is on the bottom of the cups. I doubt if many people look at the bottom of their cups - and probably many of those leftist Hollywood people don't drink soda in the first place.

You do realize that just because some Hollywood people like them doesn't make them Hollywood burgers, right?

To some of the religious anti-liberal folks in here, I imagine it DOES make them Hollywood burgers, based on other comments they've made and their apparent confusion about food, their politics, and their gods. I don't recall you being one of those whose primary purpose in life is to piss off liberals, so you probably don't understand.

It all comes down to so what.  So what if they put shit on their cups?  Don't order a drink.  So what if you do or don't like the practice?  It is not the only burger joint in town.  This entire thing is a In-N-Out nothing burger.
