Love burgers, fries, and milkshakes… or simply interested in making six figures a year? In-N-Out, coming to Colorado Springs, may have a job for you.

Last November, we first told you about In-N-Out coming to north Colorado Springs — a move that will bring forth a distribution facility and office building on a 22.4-acre parcel for future growth in the state along the Interstate-25 corridor. The distribution center may pave the way for more stores, since all must be located close to the hub due to the company’s policy of serving “food fresh, not frozen.” 

Did you know — the burger chain pays store managers an average yearly salary of more than $160,000? That’s according to the latest California Sun newsletter. You don’t even need a college degree or previous experience. 

Store manager responsibilities include leading a single restaurant and being responsible for overseeing all operations at that location, according to KTVU.

“These responsibilities, include ensuring that quality, service, and cleanliness meet our high standards. As leaders, they hire, train, and develop their team, and are responsible for creating and maintaining an enthusiastic and positive working environment.” In-N-Out Burger corporate told KTVU.

In-N-Out employees start at a higher-than-average salary of at least $13 an hour and have the opportunity to advance to six figures as a store manager, according to SF Gate. 

To put all of that into perspective, a typical architect in California makes around $112,000 a year, while a lawyer takes home around $117,000, according to Indeed. 

Benefits include 401(k) plans, paid vacation, and dental and vision insurance for both part and full-time employees.

In-N-Out was ranked No. 4 in the list of best places to work in 2018 by Glassdoor, beating Google and Microsoft. It was the only restaurant chain in the top 50 to make the list.
