The In-N-Out Burger on Central Texas Expressway in Killeen was open for business Wednesday following a statewide closure earlier this week due to bun quality.
“I don’t mind that they closed for a day,” said Michael Davidson, a Killeen resident who was eating lunch at the burger joint Wednesday. “I just had to wait a little longer to get my burger fix.”
The franchise abruptly closed 36 stores across Texas on Monday afternoon due to what the company said was an issue with the quality of buns.
Buns delivered in Texas did not measure up to the company’s quality standard but did not present any food safety concerns, according to a news release from Bob Lang Jr., the company’s executive vice president.
The Herald asked the company what specifically was wrong with the buns, but the company did not answer. Employees at the Killeen location referred all questions to corporate headquarters.
In-N-Out’s Texas locations include restaurants in Austin, San Antonio and the Dallas/Fort Worth area whose buns come from the In-N-Out distribution center and meat commissary in Dallas, according to media reports.
