Colorado’s Latest In-N-Out Location Opens in Lakewood
The In-N-Out craze continues to grow in the state of Colorado and the latest location has opened as of Monday, July 12 in Lakewood. The Lakewood location at 150 S. Wadsworth is expecting heavy traffic.
So much traffic, in fact, the Lakewood Police tweeted out the drive-thru plan to help alleviate traffic congestion on Wadsworth Boulevard.
According to an In-N-Out press release, the Lakewood location will employ an estimated 80 employees at a starting wage of $14.50 per hour. The Lakewood location for In-N-Out will have enough seating for 74 patrons indoors and 72 outdoors. The Lakewood location will also have a single drive-thru lane. In-N-Out locations are open from 10:30 am to 1 am and open until 1:30 am on Friday and Saturday.
In April, the announcement came from Loveland's Mayor Pro Tem Don Overcash that Northern Colorado will have their first In-N-Out location in Centerra where Mimi's Cafe previously used to operate. Initially, the Northern Colorado location was supposed to be in Fort Collins before the deal fell through. Another In-N-Out location is currently being built in Thornton at the intersection of East 136th Avenue and Lincoln Street.
The Lakewood location marks the opening of the fourth In-N-Out in Colorado. Plans are to open at least nine locations in the state of Colorado.
