“In-N-Out has been letting its fans down by failing to serve anything that would satisfy a burger-loving customer who wants a healthy, humane, and sustainable option,” the petition stated, calling out meat alternatives at other fast-food chains such as Chipotle, White Castle, and Burger King.
It continues, “As a company that prides itself on both customer satisfaction and ethical business practices, adding a meat-free option is a no-brainer.”
Once the petition reaches its goal of 25,000 signatures, it will be sent to Lynsi Snyder, the president of In-N-Out.
Though it has more than 23,000 signatures, some of the comments on the petition are less than supportive. One user wrote, “As a vegetarian myself, this is a stupid petition. Why, as a vegan, would you want to support a company that slaughters cows by the thousands? I wouldn’t ask Lucille’s BBQ to make me vegan ribs. I just won’t eat there.”
Customers have also turned to social media to express their opinions on the matter. “If In-N-Out (A BURGER PLACE) is required to serve veggie burgers I'm going to need all vegan/vegetarian places to offer me a meat option,” one user tweeted.
