Cult California-based burger chain In-N-Out Burger temporarily set up shop in Toronto today for a one-day only pop-up and people freaked out a little bit. According to the Globe and Mail, the chain was going to offer its famed hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and double-doubles from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. today at Ganzi Osteria. However, people started lining up in the very early morning hours and wristbands to purchase a burger were already sold out before 10 a.m.
Some have hoped that In-N-Out's popping-up in Canada may hint at expansion plans, but a rep for the chain tells Eater that the company is far from doing so: "We still have a lot of ground to cover in the United States." The Globe and Mail adds that the chain has been slow to expand because it's "dependent on its production facilities in California and Texas." Sorry Canada, no animal-style fries for you.
