GRANTS PASS, ORE.In-N-Out, one of the country's hottest burger chains and reportedly one of Southern California's best employers, plans to open a second location in Oregon. The first opened in Medford in September; the latest will be about 30 miles northwest in a former Shell gas station in Grants Pass. No word yet on an opening date. [Seattle Times]

LEXINGTON, KY.—Speaking of hot burger expansions, The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington will host Kentucky's first outpost of Danny Meyer's unstoppable Shake Shack. Don't bother lining up yet, though, as the shopping center and restaurant aren't scheduled to open until March 2017. [ENASH]

ANKENY, IOWA—Staying on theme, Des Moines' popular stunt-burger-maker Zombie Burger is looking to open its third restaurant by May 2016 in Ankeny. The franchise, which opened in 2011 and had already sold a million wacky items by last year, is also developing plans to open restaurants in Iowa City and Omaha, Neb. [Des Moines Register]

TORONTO—Chef and TV personality Masaharu Morimoto has cancelled plans to open a new two-story restaurant in a Toronto condo development, which has been hindered by delays. Morimoto's restaurant was originally expected to open sometime before 2017; a replacement project for the now-vacant space has not yet been announced. [blogTO]
