Breaking News: Is In-N-Out Burger coming to San Carlos?

by Chuck Gillooley

Sure looks that way.  Take a peek at what’s on the City Council Agenda for this coming Monday’s meeting:

San Carlos City Council Agenda — 10/12/09

According to the email update I received from the City, the city-owned parcel at the corner of Industrial and Holly that’s specified as item “6d” in the agenda is going to be purchased by none other than  In-N-Out Burgers.   This is such a no-brainer!   Not only is it the perfect location for an In-N-Out location — the closest ones are in Mountain View and Millbrae — but it will be a HUGE sales tax revenue generator a City that really needs a shot in the arm (or bank account.)

This is a great coup for the City of San Carlos, but not so great for my cholesterol level. Oh well, I’ll still take a #1 animal style, chocolate shake….

UPDATE:  Here’s an article in this morning’s Daily Journal with more info:  In-N-Out Coming to San Carlos

    • No kidding! That must have been tough to keep a lid on that one. But kudos to the City — San Carlos is the perfect location for an In-N-Out….even more appropriate is that there someday may be hospital right next door to this place so we can get our arteries checked out after one of those double-doubles!

  • I hope if this goes through that they will COMPLETELY think the access through before it opens. Many of these restaurants create huge traffic messes (Mountain View location at Rengstorff). It would be great to have this excellent source of tax revenue, but please plan access so that this intersection is not adversely affected.

  • Chuck, now you need to add another option your poll on Measure U: “Will the increased sales tax revenue from In N Out Burger change your vote on this Measure”.

    • Funny you mention that — I was thinking exactly the same thing. I wonder how the inclusion of a gold mine like In-N-Out will change the viewpoint on Measure U. The problem lies with timing — I think the City needs cash right now, and the revenue we’d see from In-N-Out is at least a year away.

  • Chuck,
    How about the idea of adding parking meters to downtown San Carlos as a way of bringing in revenue?

  • In-N-Out Burgers will be a nice addition to the entry to San Carlos. But the annual sales tax revenue from that development is only $30,000 to $40,000 per year according to the Daily Journal story. That’s a far cry from the $2.7 million per year the City is looking for to balance their budget.

    Adding Parking Meters to the Downtown was actually discussed – and dropped – from the City’s Climate Action Plan by the City Council. Revenue from that is said to be around $100,000 per year. But it would change the character of the downtown. And again, a far cry from the revenue that would come if Measure U passes.

  • If In n Out comes in San Carlos, many small restaurant owners will have hard time especially burger shops. Big corporation makes tons of money while small restaurant owners have to work very hard just to make payments.
