What's the big deal? She inherited the business. It's not like she created from the ground up which would be impressive for one so young.
The media is making a big deal out of it like she was personally responsible for it.
Just like The Donald...
R1 is right... she has a publicist working overtime to maker her into a media-darling.
Can someone post a picture of her, because I always wanted to know what she looked like?
I had a burger from there for the very first time a few weeks ago while I was in San Diego and it was heaven. Absolutely delicious. Shame it's only located out west.
i saw her on the news today, i believe they said she's 35yrs old (grand parents started the biz), she's been married 3 times, is mom to twins and her hobby is racing cars.
Apparently she has inherited the whole enchilada because she is the only survivor of a very dyfunctional family. I heard something about prescription over-dose deaths and that sort of thing. Having a billion dollar business handed to you by default is hardly something to boast about.
She sounds awesome. I want to be her friend.
r3 the link is for you. Her name is Lynsi Torres. She has no college degree and no business background. She claimed in a lawsuit filed against in-n-out that she has "minimal business involvement in the business decisions."
Read about her in the in the Bloomberg article.
"she is the only survivor of a very dyfunctional family. I heard something about prescription over-dose deaths and that sort of thing"
Oooh, and this is the company that puts little references to bible verses on their burger wrappers?
The fact that they are using the Bible as a sales gimmick probably means that they don't really believe it.
Their burgers are gross. They're slathered in onions. And they make their workers wear idiotic outfits and hats.
So her grandparents were Jewish I assume? Did someone like her father Rich convert to Xtianity?
She'll be dead in 5 years time. Easy come easy go.
I think some of her family got killed in a plane crash -- their plane flipped and was dashed to the ground when they followed a larger, stub wing plane too closely and got caught in the vortex.
Isn't In-n-Out the Chick Filet of burgers?
They do have the Bible quotes in their cups, but I've never heard of them supporting antigay politicians or groups, or taking antigay positions on any issues.
Bikini bottoms and tops for sale... how mighty Christian of them.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
