(CBSLA) – LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Following In-N-Out Burger’s public refusal to enforce vaccination mandates for its customers in certain regions of California, at least one other state governor is pursuing the burger behemoth.
The fast-food giant has become a lightning point for debate about who should and shouldn’t check for vaccination verification inside companies.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has attempted to entice one of the golden state’s most prominent firms to relocate to the Sunshine State. DeSantis is known for his anti-vaccine crusade.
Following In-N-declaration Out’s that they would not comply with California’s vaccination laws, which require restaurant personnel to check for immunization verification if customers chose to eat inside.

Chris Holmstrom of CBSLA went to five of the 15 In-N-Out outlets in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and was never required to display a vaccine card or even verbally questioned about his immunization status.
Similar vaccination requirements were outlawed in Florida.
According to a burger business spokeswoman,
“In-N-Out CEO Lynsi Snyder-Ellingson spoke with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on the Governor’s request. Governor DeSantis warmly asked In-N-Out Burger to conduct business in Florida during that conversation. While we appreciate the offer, In-N-Out Burger does not have any intentions to expand its operations or relocate its corporate headquarters to Florida.”
Dr. Jennifer Cryer, a political science professor at the University of Southern California, discusses DeSantis’ efforts to bring In-N-Out Burger to his state.
“I find it really fascinating.” Is this simply them saying, “Hey, we’re on the same page on these problems, so let’s get together and find out what we can do about it,” or is this something that will have a long-term impact? Dr. Cryer said, “We don’t know yet.”

DeSantis’ spokesman issued a statement that included the following:
“Vaccine passport rules have forced In-N-Out to shutter a few of outlets in California. This is what sparked the idea of creating a facility in Florida. We would be delighted to welcome this fantastic enterprise to Florida, the finest state in which to conduct business and where freedom reigns supreme.”

California, on the other hand, does not have vaccination passports, and instead of enforcing the requirements, In-N-Out chose to shut down indoor eating at two bay area facilities.
“It’s a win-win situation for DeSantis,” said Jack Pitney, a professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College. “He could win some business for Florida, and he might be able to score some political points against California, which is huge in Florida.”
Snyder-Ellingson, who is known for being camera shy, talked with CBSLA in 2015.
“You know, we’re not simply trying to bring in new stuff like a lot of other folks,” Ellingson remarked in the interview.
While the cups at In-N-Out carry Bible passages, the corporation is not overtly political. She took over the firm after many family tragedies.
“At the end of the day, it’ll be a commercial choice.” In-N-Out is a very efficient business. Professor Pitney said, “They’ll make judgments based on what’s best for In-N-Out.”

California is often targeted by states such as Florida and Texas, who use lower taxes and a lower cost of living to entice firms to relocate there.
