Full disclosure here. I have not experienced the gastronomical Nirvana that is In-N-Out burger. I've been informed by what I consider to be reliable sources that they provide a “next level” burger experience. I'm also told that they are “next level” choosy when it comes to picking their next location.

All you can do is beg and plead. Go to Contact Customer Service - In-N-Out Burger And shamelessly ask them to consider coming here. Click the link above and let them know how happy you would be to be able to eat a “Double Double” every day for the rest of your life. (your cardiologist will not thank you) 

Is it possible that In-N-out would consider a store in Wenatchee? If someone has the cash to build it, they might consider it. (I emphasize the word might)
