In-N-Out Burger is potentially expanding to Goodlettsville, marking a significant stride in its Tennessee growth campaign. This beloved fast food chain, famed for its distinctive "animal style" offerings, appears to be planning a new outlet near RiverGate Mall, as indicated by recent permit filings with the Metro Planning Department.

In-N-Out Burger Locations in Nashville

The locations in Tennessee under consideration include new outposts in Antioch and one adjacent to the forthcoming In-N-Out corporate offices in Williamson County.

In early 2023, In-N-Out revealed ambitions to erect a new corporate headquarters in Franklin's Berry Farms by 2026, which is expected to generate 275 corporate positions. With construction poised to commence later this year, Williamson County has awarded $1.6 million in tax incentives to lure the iconic burger brand, complemented by state-level economic perks. Presently, In-N-Out boasts approximately 400 sites across California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Texas, Oregon, and Colorado.

In-N-Out Burger's Scheduled Opening

The launch schedule for the Goodlettsville restaurant remains tentative. The development of the Antioch site, positioned off Interstate 24 within the sprawling Century Farms project, has been progressing since the previous year. Both the corporate headquarters and the Franklin restaurant are anticipated to open in 2026.

Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson, the president of In-N-Out and a descendant of the founders, shared insights into the company's expansion strategy. She noted the overwhelming customer turnout with new state debuts, prompting the strategy of opening two locations simultaneously for initial state entries. Following this initial launch, plans for a third location are expected to be announced soon, reflecting In-N-Out's methodical approach to its Tennessee expansion.
