I love In-N-Out Burger. It's not just because I love double cheeseburgers. It's not just because it started in my hometown of Baldwin Park, CA. It's because it represents a special side of goodness: great business practices.
It's almost too good to be true. They have a commitment to quality where no food is frozen, prepackaged, or processed. It's great tasting fresh food that is fairly priced. They treat their employees well. Starting wages for their restaurant employes is $10 an hour. In-N-Out is closed on holidays so that their employees can spend time with their families. They also work for the greater good of society. The In-N-Out Burger Foundation has been supporting agencies that fight child abuse and neglect since 1984.
Whenever I bite into an In-N-Out burger, I feel good not just because the food tastes great and doesn't cause me to go broke, but I know I'm supporting a good company doing good work in the world.
