When Forbes released its list of “America’s Favorite CEO’s in 2016,” it was no surprise to anyone to find that Lynsi Snyder of In-N-Out Burger made the ranking. An icon of the Southwest, the burger chain has a reputation of strengthening communities and for maintaining high quality and family ownership despite the chain’s boom of popularity and expansion into six states.
Perhaps one of the most powerful ways in which In-N-Out Burger is strengthening communities is through the In-N-Out Burger Child Abuse Foundation, a non-profit that monetarily supports organizations which help children who have suffered abuse, as well as those that take preventative measures to stop child abuse.
The In-N-Out Burger Child Abuse Foundation was founded in 1995, 47 years after the humble beginnings of In-N-Out as a single burger joint in Baldwin Park, run by Harry and Esther Snyder. An innovative company from the beginning, In-N-Out has stuck to its moral backbone since its founding, serving high-quality food from 1948 to today.
In addition to their Child Abuse Foundation, In-N-Out Burger founded the Slave 2 Nothing Foundation, a foundation which takes a two-fold approach to freeing people from bondage, fighting both human trafficking and substance abuse. Between the two organizations, In-N-Out Burger has donated well over a million dollars to various community-strengthening organizations and efforts in the past year alone.
