In-N-Out is headed to the UK — but only for four hours. The California-based burger chain with a cult following will host a one-day-only pop-up in the London borough of Camden next Wednesday, the Camden New Journal reports.
The brief burger takeover is being held at a Brazilian steakhouse called Estancia Brasil; the restaurant’s owner tells the paper he’s not familiar with In-N-Out, but that the events company who approached him about renting the space told him to “expect crowds.”
That’s perhaps a bit of an understatement: An In-N-Out pop-up in Singapore a few years back sold out in five minutes flat. The last time the burger chain popped up in London was in 2012; it’s also made appearances in Sydney, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, among other cities.
Unfortunately for international Double-Double fans, In-N-Out probably isn’t scouting for expansion: The chain has stated numerous times that it has no interest in franchising, and considering it has yet to even open any locations on the East Coast, a move across the pond is highly unlikely. But serving its burgers and fries in the world’s biggest cities — however briefly — likely helps keep a steady stream of international tourists flocking to its U.S. locations.
