Citing Crime, In-N-Out Burger Announces Closure of Oakland Location

In-N-Out Burger

On Sunday, In-n-Out Burger announced it will close its Oakland restaurant in March due to crime and safety concerns.

The location (8300 Oakport Street) is located near the Oakland International Airport and cited “due to ongoing issues with crime.”

According to the media statement released:

“We have made the decision to close our In-N-Out Burger location in Oakland, due to ongoing issues with crime. Despite taking repeated steps to create safer conditions, our Customer and Associates are regularly victimized by car break-ins, property damage, theft, and armed robberies. Our last day of business in Oakland will be Sunday, March 24, 2024.

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. Additionally, this location remains a busy and profitable one for the company, but our top priority must be the safety and well-being of our Customers and Associates – we cannot ask them to visit or work in an unsafe environment.

All affected Associates will have the opportunity to transfer to a nearby In-N-Out location, or alternatively, receive a severance package.

In-N-Out Burger has a history of supporting the Oakland community through charitable giving that predates the opening of our location here Although we will no longer do business there, we will continue to support local charitable organizations in Oakland through our In-N-Out Burger Foundations and Slave 2 Nothing Foundation.

Denny Warnick
Chief Operating Officer

The City of Oakland is also now sending invoices to local businesses who are victims of crime should Oakland come out and investigate. In a recent video posted by Chris Moore, who is running for Alameda County Supervisor, posted a recent robbery victim and then an invoice was sent to the business owner.

Oakland keeps voting in these liberal politicians including the mayor. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET !!! Get a clue and start voting in politicians (if you are lucky enough to have one run) that are going to put all possible resources into fighting crime and not a bunch of lip servive and pathetically weak council meetings that are doing zero to curb crime in Oakland !! If not, you will see nothing but shuttered businesses boarded up in your city. IN OTHER WORDS…WAKE UP WOKE LIBERALS…WAKE UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THEY are destroying everything.

Obviously the leadership prefers catering to the desires of criminals than a contributing business. Oakland is a dying city and the leaders want it that way. RIP Oakland

Oaklands leadership might be worse then Antiochs. None of this is surprising to anybody that knows Oaklands true crime stats.

Oakland and SF – The next Flint, Michigan. Give it a couple of years and Sales Force will exit next.

Soon there will be little left to rob. Of course, the progressive left will blame business for “abandoning” Oakland rather than admit that their own failed policies are the real cause.

Good Riddance. While acknowledging the actual crime problems society at large is facing, this feels disingenuous from a pretty disgusting company that’s all too happy to push their own ideologies over their actual products and ON their actual products. This seems like a stunt and since I have never liked these garbage burgers anyway.. It’d be helpful if the public would actually study just a little about crime and punishment because finding an answer is a lot more complicated than the simpletons in these comments seem to think. I mean it’s actual news that a restaurant that literally sells arguably garbage food from a nutritional standpoint is closing and people are mad…that they have less access to garbage food.. Nobody throws a fit when a farmers market closes or a sprouts. Fat bastards.
