In Bob Shallit's Thursday column in the Sac Bee, he reports that the word on the street is that In-N-Out are looking at a location on Alhambra.
[Carl Van Fleet, the company's VP for planning and development] says the company has no current plans for additional sites in the region.
But we keep hearing rumors that In-N-Out execs have their eyes on at least one other high-profile local site: near Alhambra Boulevard.
We know that In-N-Out builds their own buildings, so they'd probably prefer an empty lot. They'd also probably want somewhere with a lot of traffic. My best is guess is that it has to be that spot at Alhambra & Folsom Blvd.
Anybody have a better guess?
