In-N-Out to close only Oakland location due to crime

The In-N-Out location near the Oakland Airport has been affected by crime.

In-N-Out Burger has announced that it will close its only Oakland restaurant in March due to concerns over crime and safety for customers and employees.

The big picture: Oakland’s In-N-Out will shut down on March 24 despite being a busy and profitable location for 18 years.


  • The city’s lone In-N-Out is near the Oakland Airport, an area that has dealt with high-crime.
  • All employees will have an opportunity to transfer to a nearby In-N-Out location or receive a severance package.

What they’re saying: In-N-Out Chief Operating Officer Denny Warnick said in a statement that the company cannot ask customers and employees to visit or work in an unsafe environment.

  • “Despite taking repeated steps to create safer conditions, our Customers and Associates are regularly victimized by car break-ins, property damage, theft, and armed robberies,” Warnick said. “We are grateful for the local community, which has supported us for over 18 years, and we recognize that this closure negatively impacts our Associates and their families.”
