In-N-Out Burger

A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

“This book grills up an enjoyable read for both avid foodies and novice diners alike! Perman’s sneak peek into the fascinating history of In-N-Out is as good as the delicious burgers themselves.”

—Mario Batali, celebrity chef and author of Molto Italiano

A behind-the-counter look at the fast-food chain that breaks all the rules, Stacy Perman’s In-N-Out Burger is the New York Times bestselling inside story of the family behind the California-based hamburger chain with a cult following large enough to rival the Grateful Dead’s. A juicy unauthorized history of a small business-turned-big business titan, In-N-Out Burger was named one of Fast Company magazine’s Best Business Books of 2009, and  Fortune Small Business insists that it “should be required reading for family business owners, alongside Rich Cohen’s Sweet and Low and Thomas Mann’s Buddenbrooks.”

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 09, 2009 – Perman (Spies Inc.) casts an affectionate and admiring eye at In-N-Out Burger, the family-owned, Southern California chain that has become a cultural institution without franchising, going public, changing its menu or precooking its burgers. This book traces the history of the company and the Snyders, the family that founded and still owns In-N-Out, interspersed with the evolution of the fast-food industry. Perman never makes good on her promise to go behind-the-counter and analyze the company's dealings her access to executives and family members did not extend to gleaning financial or strategic information consequently it's never clear whether In-N-Out's conservatism is a conscious business strategy, a personal preference of the owners or plain complacency. More a glowing fan letter from an appreciative customer than expos , this book has more to say about the company's celebrity fans, American family dynamics and our collective love affair with fast food.

Customer Reviews

Worthy of It's Subject

A well-written, well documented narrative describing the establishment and ascendancy of this hyper- popular restaurant. As an In-N-Out regular every time I am in California, this recounting seems ver accurate. It captures the massive affection regulars feel for In-N-Out without leaving out the one seamy period in the restaurant's history. Interestingly, I read a good portion of this book on a recent vacation to SoCal where I introduced two friends to In-N-Out, one of whom is not a burger lover...need I tell you we went back? It really is THAT good and so is this book.
