** YES ** In-N-Out should be allowed to open in this location !
I’m shocked this process of possibly blocking a good company from opening is still carrying on ☹️. My family moved from Los Angeles (where you can conveniently dine at In-N-Out), to Campbell (where you have to drive far to dine at one) two years ago. This location would be amazing! I’ve seen many different locations where In-N-Outs reside in LA and when there are more patrons (e.g lunch break) In-N-Out staffs up, sends an employee outside to take orders in person on a tablet, and the drive thru works super efficiently! Design of the drive thru & parking lot is well thought out too!
Don’t kill good businesses.
Do let a stable, community supporting, highly enjoyed business join our great city.
We are lucky they are even willing to put up with so much push back & haven’t taken their business to another city!

The task of the City is to regulate traffic for the sake of business, not regulate business for the sake of traffic. I support the proposal.

There is not anything wrong with competition. I've seen many of these establishments and their drive-thru and public eating area are always busy. This tells me they are selling a good product. Also, I've known many who have worked there saying they work with there school and college schedules. They pay more for what you know how to do in the restaurant, and every one I have gone through the staff is the same friendly and reception is always cordial. They bring a great atmosphere to the area!!

I live in Campbell behind mountain mikes pizza been raised in Campbell (1976 on) . There is NO fast food locations in the area of elephant bar ! That's a great spot its by hi 17 on ramp and MANY people go to that home depot ( across the street) at all times . A in-n-out burger will bring many jobs there and much needed good fast food on that route , its hard to believe it has no happened all ready !

I think the Hamilton Ave location is perfectly suitable for In-N-Out. Hamilton Ave is a major throughfare with many businesses. Arguments that somehow traffic is going to be drastically affected have no weight. I have lived in Downtown Campbell for 17 years, and have driven that stretch of Hamilton thousands of times, at all times of the day. Bottom line is that there's a lot of traffic on Hamilton--always has been, always will be. The prior establishment, the Elephant Bar, had a lot of patrons--this had zero impact on the traffic, even during high commute times.The people complaining are the folks who live closest to the proposed site, and are trying to use this flimsy "traffic" gripe to get their way. This "hissy fit" is completely self-serving and really a waste of the City's time. Guaranteed none of these folks were out in force protesting businesses moving into other areas of town. It's selective outrage. My response to them is that if they have a problem with traffic, they should never have moved to where they are. This part of Hamilton Ave. is a "business district"--that's just the way it is. I like In-N-Out--their food is good and I've always had very positive experiences at their establishments. Plus, they don't serve booze (as opposed to Elephant Bar)--I wonder if in their moment of self-righteousness, these "protesters" ever paused to consider the benefit of that.

Who doesn’t like In-N-out? I think having this restaurant here in Campbell is a great idea. The closest one I know about is near the airport. I would be happy to have this fast food joint at the proposed location as long as traffic patterns make sense. This is a good thing for Campbell. I’m very much in favor of it.

I am a Campbell resident and would love to see an In and Out burger in Campbell. I usually have to driver to the In and Out on Coleman Avenue close to the airport and I regularly take my kids there so having a location closer to home would be very helpful. I think the proposed space where Elephant bar used to be is a good location and it looks like it would work great for a commercial setting like an In and Out burger. I am in favor of opening an In and Out at this location. In and Out delivers consistently good food at an affordable price and their locations are always busy and a success because they run their business so well.

All members of my family are In n Out fans!! Currently we must drive considerable distance - Sunnyvale, Mountain View or South San Jose - money that could be spent in Campbell!!
The stats posted regarding drive thru' queue, parking and seating appear quite substantial and appropriately planned for this property. While I understand the concerns regarding traffic, any business going into this location is bound to generate traffic and it seems logical to approve one such as In n Out that will bring substantial tax revenue to Campbell.

I have lived in this neighborhood (Harrison Avenue) for 18 years and always have been open to development but it has just gotten to be too much. The traffic issues are astounding. The In and Out would just simply clog this area even more. I am totally open to a sit-down type restaurant (like Elephant Bar that was there before) because people come, sit and eat and it is more reasonable with traffic. The nature of In and Out is just that "In and Out" and the fast food traffic patterns would simply create a terrible burden to an already ridiculously heavy Hamilton Avenue load but also to the neighbors who already deal with a deluge of traffic. Bring something more reasonable to that site. I am totally open to that. Just not this type of restaurant. It is not a good fit.

I live in the Hamann Park neighborhood and work in Campbell, driving past this intersection on my way to work. I absolutely support the In n Out! This will of course increase traffic, but right now the location is vacant and a blight. SOME business is going to be put here, that business will try to serve the public and as many customers as possible, so, traffic is going to increase no matter what. Since traffic will be increasing, we might as well have ready access to tasty and affordable hamburgers, fries, and shakes!
