In 'N Out Looking at a location near Salem OR

Not 100% certain yet, but If the location does open it would be their northernmost location, just outside of Salem OR and a possible precursor to an expansion into Portland and eventually Seattle. I suspect that when the first In 'N Out eventually opens its first location in Seattle it'll make the frenzy around the first Chick-Fil-A locations here pale in comparison.

The Oregonian confirms that the chain is coming to Keizer (just north of Salem).

The downtown Salem sign earlier this year was apparently a (good) hoax.

The comments section claims they won't come into Portland because of Dea's in - n - out in Gresham but that seems kind of grasping at straws / local legend to me.

In Longview, WA, there was a small cafe (long-gone) called In & Out Cafe years ago (early-mid 1990s). If I remember correctly, the In-N-Out burger chain caught wind of this and, despite not having a location anywhere near Longview, WA, threatened a lawsuit if they didn't change their name. I think they did eventually change the name but shut down not long after. I get protecting a brand etc. but this wasn't even a burger place. I couldn't find an article about it, but the local paper has a history of only writing articles about businesses that advertise heavily with them, so that isn't surprising.

The In-N-Out in Keizer is getting ready to open soon (no date has been announced, but it is currently expected to be some time this month) and planning is underway in anticipation of massive crowds, with as many as 200 people expected in the drive thru line at peak times. Drive Thru customers will stage at a nearby baseball stadium parking lot before being ushered over to the actual parking lot.
