Not all fast food establishments are the same. When customers are polled about their overall level of happiness, some perform better than others. The chicken fast food franchise Chick-fil-A, which is notably closed on Sundays but almost always has a lengthy line at the drive-thru every other day of the week, is one that consistently receives high honors in these surveys.
In-N-Out Burger is another fast food restaurant with a well-known lengthy wait. Although it is a local staple, the hamburger restaurant has not yet expanded statewide. The business takes pride in using only fresh ingredients and will not make concessions. Although California accounts for the vast bulk of the chain’s sites, it also has establishments in Texas, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and other states.
If you’ve ever had an In-N-Out burger, you undoubtedly understand why customers wait for such lengths of time for them even if many think it’s worth it. A double and fries is a special kind of burger.
If you’ve ever had the good fortune to eat In-N-Out, you might have noticed something in addition to the high-quality food and fresh ingredients. You may have noticed that the cups and wrappers had Bible scriptures on them.
Perhaps you missed the verses entirely because they are practically invisible, but they are there. You can read “John 3:16” on the bottom of the soda glasses. “Proverbs 3:5” is written on the bottom of the milkshake cups. You can read “Revelation 3:20” on the wrappers of the cheeseburgers and hamburgers. “Nahum 1:7” is written on the double wrappers.
Although many Christians have these well-known verses committed to memory, if you are unfamiliar with the Bible, you might not even be aware that these are passages from it. The meanings of the words and numbers can be obscure to you. The words make reference to a Bible book. It is specified by the number which chapters and verses. For example, John 3:16 reads “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
This unique In-N-Out fun fact has a long history. According to the company’s CEO, Lynsi Snyder, the idea to print Bible scriptures on the cups and wrappers originated from her uncle. The daughter of the In-N-Out founders claimed to The Christian Post that her uncle Richard “put the Bible verses on the cups and wrappers in the early ‘90s, just before he passed away. He had just accepted the Lord and wanted to put that little touch of his faith on our brand.”
Snyder keeps her family’s business to such high standards because she is a devout Christian and because of her beliefs. She explained, “My grandparents set the bar high and I only try to raise it.” She added that they “maintain what we’ve started with: not compromising the quality of product, service, or standards.”
In terms of Bible verses, Snyder is also imitating her uncle. She has added even more verses to additional goods over the years. She said, “I added verses to the fry boat, coffee and hot cocoa cups.” Snyder added, “It’s a family business and will always be, and that’s a family touch.”
