I had the privelege of meeting her and her husband when they opened the 1st Fresno store. It was a shock when he and a couple others died in a light plane crash several years ago. I helped build 20 Carl’s Jr’s but I sure prefereed In N Out burger.

Sad news in the burger world:
Esther Snyder, who with her late husband Harry co-founded In-N-Out Burger in Baldwin Park in 1948 and popularized the drive-through window for the fast-food industry, has died. She was 86.
Snyder, who had succeeded her husband and two sons as head of the family business, died Friday, according to an announcement from the company. Neither the cause nor the place of death was announced.
She was an inspiration for all the associates at In-N-Out and for all the people in the community whose lives she touched over the years," Lynsi Martinez, her granddaughter and sole heir, said in a statement.
