Bay Area may have a new In-N-Out store in the South Bay

Fans of In-N-Out Burger’s double-double and animal-style fries may find a new location in the South Bay after the burger chain submitted a proposal to open a fifth store in San Jose.

In-N-Out has submitted a preliminary proposal ahead of an official planning application to launch a drive-thru restaurant at 3150 and 3158 Stevens Creek Blvd., as first reported by Mercury News. Initial plans suggest the restaurant will include drive-thru and enough seating to accommodate 84 guests indoors and 40 guests outdoors.

“We hope to open a new restaurant in San Jose,” Mike Abbate, assistant vice president of real estate and development at In-N-Out, confirmed to SFGATE. “We are currently in the development application process, so it is too early to say when, or even if, we will be able to open a restaurant there. We appreciate our customers in San Jose who have shared their anticipation with us.

According to the preliminary planning application that was submitted to the City of San Jose Planning Division and shared with SFGATE, the eventual In-N-Out store would occupy the space of an existing former Arby’s and Vitamin Shoppe store. in the urban village of Stevens Creek, which will be demolished if plans go ahead.

In-N-Out will have to bypass an obstacle on the site that “prohibits drive-through uses in the Stevens Creek Urban Village,” notes the City of San Jose Planning Division. The fast food chain, however, hopes to find an exception or an amendment to the rule. Stevens Creek Urban Village is also adding new housing, a hotel, shops and restaurants under Los Angeles-based developer Miramar Capital.

In the meantime, it’s unclear when the In-N-Out store might open. The chain plans to eventually open the restaurant seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Friday through Saturday. The site is also adjacent to the Westfield Valley Fair Mall and down the street from Santana Row. San Jose currently has four In-N-Out stores.
