Ray Maldonado

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. Hired in 1969 when he was just 16, Ray 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. Ray’s passion for teamwork and helping others reaches 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.
