In-N-Out submits concept plans to Fort Collins

FORT COLLINS — In-N-Out Burgers Inc. could be eyeing a move to one of Fort Collins’ busiest roads.

The California burger chain had a meeting with Fort Collins city planners for a conceptual location at 1700 S. College Ave., which would demolish the current building there and build a 5,000-square-foot restaurant with a drive-thru and outdoor seating. City documents from that meeting include a site plan and facade renderings.

The property last changed hands in 2012 to an LLC in Golden for $866,250, according to Larimer County property records.

In-N-Out caused a stir earlier this summer when it announced that it would open regional offices, a distribution center and a restaurant in Colorado Springs sometime in 2020 and a restaurant in Lone Tree.

In a statement, In-N-Out vice president of real estate and development Carl Arena said the company is focused on finishing its design and buildout of its Colorado Springs sites before opening any other restaurant in the state. “Although our Real Estate team continues to investigate several opportunities in a number of Colorado cities, it is far too early to comment on any further location plans,” he said.
