The City of Tehachapi is reaching out to In-N-Out Burger following the closure of their San Francisco location by that city for failure to enforce vaccine mandates---and is inviting them to Tehachapi to open in a more business-friendly climate.
City Manager Greg Garrett and Economic Development Coordinator Corey Costelloe have produced a recruitment video for In-N-Out, offering potential sites for a restaurant in the City of Tehachapi, which serves a trade area with over 75,000 people and is adjacent to Highway 58, and the 30,000-plus vehicles a day that travel that busy trade corridor.
“In Tehachapi, you can serve your famous Double-Double with a side of fries, or freedom,” Garrett said in the video.
Costelloe added “we offer you what places like San Francisco will not, a chance to do business in a city that only mandates you serve great food to great people.”
The video offers a quick glimpse of available development sites and reiterates Tehachapi’s commitment to the American Dream and “a darn good burger.”
