I write extensively about the chain for NewsBreak, most notably of late regarding the fast food company’s current ambitious expansion.

Per There are 389 In-N-Out Burger locations in the United States as of March 20, 2023. The state with the most number of In-N-Out Burger locations in the U.S. is California, with 269 locations, which is about 69% of all In-N-Out Burger locations in the U.S.

According to a report from, entitled “Construction Begins on Idaho’s First In-N-Out Burger,” it appears as though the opening of the titular new location will be late this year, or early next.

As excerpted from the report: California-based burger chain In-N-Out officially started construction on its new Meridian location Monday. The site is located at 3520 E. Fairview Ave, which is currently a dirt lot inside the parking lot at The Village, south of the H&M store. In-N-Out hired ESI Construction as its general contractor, who recently set up a job trailer nearby. Construction is estimated to be completed in September 2023.

It should be noted as of press time there has yet to be an opening date officially announced by the company.

Now comes word that yet another Idaho-based location is coming soon.

Let us explore further.

In-N-Out Burger, 2023

Also per the linked piece linked above, the second Idaho In-N-Out location will be mall-based.

From the report: There’s another In-N-Out in the works at the Boise Towne Square Mall. As BoiseDev reported in January, the fast-food chain plans to demolish the vacant Pier 1 Imports store and build a 3,885-square-foot restaurant with a drive-through. Once construction starts, it would take approximately six months to complete.


This is a developing story. In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of progress and official announcements of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.

Thank you for reading.
