The iconic California chain In-N-Out Burger was welcomed with hours-long line from fans as they open their first two outlets in Colorado.
Authorities were called in the outlet opened in Aurora to control the crowds as cars and customers stated to form a massive line around the new fast food restaurant.
According to the customers, they waited for at least 14 hours to get their hamburgers, fries and shakes.
“It’s official, traffic is double double animal style right now all around the mall,” Aurora Police tweeted.
“We are on hand helping manage the massive traffic response. Be patient and be kind.”
They posted another update warning people of a 12-hour wait, noting that the line “wrapped around the mall twice.”
Authorities estimated that the line was 1.5 to 2 miles long.
The outlets opened in Colorado Springs saw a similar situation, including one Southern California native who had slept in is truck outside the drive-thru since Tuesday.
“I’m waiting for them to open so I can get a hamburger. I’m hungry,” Ken Vizzini said in a quick interview.
“I had time off so I decided to just come down Tuesday and make sure I was the first one. It’s just been a fun and exciting experience, I don’t regret doing it.”
The family-owned In-N-Out had attracted a cult following over its more than 70 years in business.
At the moment, the fast-growing fast food chain has locations in only six other states: California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Texas, and Oregon.
“I don’t know if we’ve ever felt more welcome, between all the anticipation and the requests for In-N-Out to come to Colorado and now to see the customers out here this morning just feels great,” said In-N-Out’s vice president of operations Denny Warnick.
The company have announced plans to open at least seven more locations in Colorado.
