AUSTIN (KXAN) - For fans of In-N-Out Burger, the wait for the California-based chain to make their mark in Central Texas can't come fast enough.
Last summer , In-N-Out received zoning to start building a restaurant in Round Rock; but fast-forward nine months later, the project has not started construction yet.
"We had thought originally they were going to start construction in January, but heard they changed the plan of opening the Round Rock location first," said Steve Norwood, Round Rock's City Manager.
Carl Van Fleet, Vice President of Planning and Development for In-N-Out Burger, doesn't want to speculate on when the Round Rock restaurant will open, but he did say they're aiming for the end of 2013.
"Once we begin construction on a new site, it usually takes us four to five months to build the restaurant and open for business," said Van Fleet. "But we still have some work to do before we're ready to start construction."
While the Round Rock location is still in the queue for construction, the company is also eyeing Cedar Park and Austin as potential sites.
"Those projects are even in earlier stages of development so it would be premature to comment on their respective timelines just yet," said Van Fleet.
According to a Cedar Park spokesperson, In-N-Out Burger has expressed interest but had not confirmed when or where the project will be built.
Even though there are no set dates for any of the Central Texas locations, the company plans on making a mark. "Austin is a fantastic area and we definitely look forward to being there in near future," said Van Fleet.
