The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson, the famously private owner of In-N-Out Burger, had a call with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis this week after the company’s high-profile spat with Bay Area health departments over proof-of-vaccination requirements.
DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw said that Snyder-Ellingson and the governor had a “productive conversation” on Monday about In-N-Out possibly expanding to Florida.
In-N-Out entered the national discourse over COVID-19 policy when a company executive said the chain will “refuse to become the vaccination police for any government” and locations in San Francisco and Contra Costa counties suspended indoor dining.
Read the full article. The burger chain, which prints bible verses on its packaging, has become a folk hero in the right wing fever swamps with Mike Pence and Franklin Graham among those posting photos of themselves eating there.
Snyder-Ellingson rarely makes public appearances or statements. https://t.co/qjmGbR5Ydo
