The Tragic Death Of The In-N-Out President
By GINA LAVECCHIA RAGONE
As popular as In-N-Out is for its burger quality, the company has faced hardship with the loss of multiple CEOs. In-N-Out was established in 1948 by Harry Snyder, who left his legacy to his family when he passed in 1976 from lung cancer.
Rich Snyder, the younger of Harry’s two sons, took over the company that year at 24 years old and ran the company until December 1993, by which point the 41-year-old Snyder had grown In-N-Out to 93 restaurants, all while keeping it a family-owned company. However, he soon passed due to a fatal plane crash with no survivors.
The night before the tragic accident, Rich reconciled with his long-estranged older brother Guy, who was named the next CEO, a role he held until his own tragic death due to an accidental drug overdose in 1999. Current CEO/President "Burger Billionaire Heiress" Lynsi Snyder, daughter of Rich Snyder, took over the chain in 2010 at 28.
