DENVER — Several Coloradans got excited Monday when a fake news story surfaced that In-N-Out Burger was coming to Colorado. But it’s not true.
The story from the website I’m From Denver quickly went viral with more than 4,200 shares and 3,200 reactions on Facebook as of Monday afternoon. The website cited a tweet from a fake account.
Turns out the real In-N-Out hasn’t used that Twitter page since 2011.
While some Coloradans might wish the news was true, an In-N-Out spokesman has been responding to Coloradans on its official Facebook page.
“We do not have any locations in the works for Colorado at this time,” the spokesman said.
In-N-Out is a popular Southern California-based fast food chain that only serves burgers, fries, shakes and drinks. It has locations throughout California, and in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Texas.
Last week, Shake Shack, a popular East Coast burger chain, announced it will open its first Denver location in late 2017.
