Ray Maldonado: The In-N-Out Burger Family, His career and mentoring
June 17, 2015
Hosted by Ann Beal
Hired in 1969 when he was just 16, Ray Maldonado has played a key role in the growth of In-N-Out Burger. In his 46 years with the company, he has helped pioneer the carefully planned expansion from its Southern California roots into Northern California, Arizona and Utah, and now Texas. Since In-N-Out Burger opened its first store in 1948, its reputation for made-to-order, fresh, high-quality hamburgers has spread throughout the West. Since 2011, that reputation has been growing in Texas, supervised by Regional Manager Ray Maldonado—a longtime member of the In-N-Out family. Ray’s also discusses his passion for teamwork and helping others reach across generations within the In-N-Out Burger family. In addition to his involvement with his church, his children and grandchildren, Ray makes time for one hobby that shouldn’t be too surprising—“grilling and cooking” are at the top of his list, he says.

I give them a deep desire to thrive and not just exist, to take that deepest desire of their heart, whatever it is and go get it. I remove the stumbling blocks that get in their way, that threaten their success in reaching their dream. Not a goal, a dream. Not a small dream, but a huge dream; the biggest dream they have ever had. I breathe into them my deep love for life and my total faith in their ability to achieve whatever they desire and they do. I teach people how to love life. I believe in passion and embracing all emotions to reach a closer, deeper understanding of one another. I give people courage and make them brave. I see in people their greatest potential and am energized by strengthening and empowering them to reach it.”
