Langley Good Times Cruise-In: Burger blockage averted

Organizers of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In breathed a sigh of relief this month after they got the word that a popular burger joint will be coming once again.

In-N-Out Burger is an American chain without any brick-and-mortar stores here in B.C. But for the past several years, it has had a presence at the Cruise-In, with a food truck serving the chain’s popular eats to the crowd.

“They are such a popular part of our show,” said Cruise-In president Eric Taylor.

This year, recent changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program threatened to keep the truck out of the country.

The epic lineups for the In-N-Out also help fund the main purpose of the Cruise-In: funding local charities.

The Cruise-In organization pays part of the costs of bringing up the crews of burger flippers.

But In-N-Out gives Cruise-In a $2,500 cheque towards their charities, and it’s actually the Cruise-In organization that sells the tickets allowing hungry visitors to claim a burger.

“At the end, we end up with about $10,000 in our hands,” said Taylor.

As Cruise-In is completely volunteer run and non-profit, that makes up a good chunk of the cash going to good causes at the end of the show.

The issues have since been smoothed over. It’s been ruled that In-N-Out will be allowed to bring in its workers for a one-day charity event.

Taylor said there had already been a lot of comments and questions on the Cruise-In’s website about whether the burger chain would be returning.

They’re expecting to sell 1,500 tickets this year for In-N-Out burger meals.
