The Best Company I've Ever Seen

Ask my eldest son what he liked most about our recent vacation to California, and you'll get none of the usual responses. Disneyland? Sure. Legoland? Yeah, but it would have been nice to actually use his Lego gift card. Sea World? Cool dolphins -- but where are the sea turtles?

And, really, what's the deal with mixing a beer garden with a giant fish tank? What, no chips and tartar sauce? (Whoops, that's me.)

What our 8-year-old most enjoyed about our trip was the frequent stops at In-N-Out Burger. Me, too -- because In-N-Out is the best company I've ever seen.

Quality your portfolio can taste
So what's so special about In-N-Out Burger? Let me count the ways:

  1. It's family-owned. Since 1948, when Harry and Esther Snyder founded the first drive-through in Baldwin Park, Calif., In-N-Out's owners have maintained control over the business. Burger King (NYSE: BKC  ) -- home of the Whopper and the creepy mascot -- is 99% owned by institutional investors such as Goldman Sachs.
  2. It follows a disciplined growth strategy. In-N-Out insists on using fresh ingredients for its burgers and fries. All 200-plus locations are within trucking range of its Baldwin Park beef commissary. Expansion beyond southwest Utah would require freezing and, from management's view, damage the brand. Krispy Kreme's (NYSE: KKD  ) disastrous franchising strategy is all the evidence I need to agree.
  3. It attracts insanely loyal customers. Plenty of novelty restaurants have merchandise. Even Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX  ) does. But would you really wear a Starbucks shirt or show off your Starbucks mug in public -- even when you're not jonesing for what's inside? Perhaps a few of you would, but not to the degree that In-N-Out's customers do. Branded T-shirts from the restaurant are everywhere in southern California. Try to take mine, and you'll end up with a fistful of get-your-filthy-hands-off. Few companies short of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) command similar brand loyalty.
  4. It's different. Go back to that bit about fresh ingredients. In-N-Out likes to say that it sells "quality you can taste." I'll grant that there's no perfect method for testing such a claim. But on a personal note, I find it instructive and thrilling that my food-allergic son -- who can't ingest protein or most preservatives -- can eat fries from In-N-Out. They aren't loaded with the same junk served by McDonald's (NYSE: MCD  ) , Wendy's (NYSE: WEN  ) , or Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM  ) .

So what's the difference between In-N-Out, the best company I've ever seen, and the best stock idea I've ever seen? Two things. First, while both are great businesses, In-N-Out isn't public and may never be. Second, my top stock idea is neither family-owned nor early in its development. Mr. Market has merely mispriced its multibagger potential. (Say that five times fast.)

Still, there's something truly special about owning a piece of a business that possesses the intangibles that In-N-Out does:

  1. Engaged management, preferably via one or more founders with a big ownership stake.
  2. A proven track record of disciplined growth.
  3. An insanely loyal customer base.
  4. A unique angle that allows the business to stand out among its peers.

The Foolish bottom line
Sometimes you'll stumble upon companies that share these traits, as I stumbled across In-N-Out during my teen years in Camarillo. (Mmm, a Double-Double with grilled onions, please.)

Fortunately, you needn't rely on luck. Small-cap firms of In-N-Out's caliber are out there -- and if you're looking for a few ideas, Seth Jayson and Bill Mann search for them daily in our Motley Fool Hidden Gems investing service.

They've hit pay dirt more than once -- yet mispriced opportunities remain. One is a quick-serve specialist that Bill picked for the February 2007 issue. It's even more popular than In-N-Out on Facebook -- and that's saying something, since In-N-Out is ranked fifth among all restaurants there.

What's more, the stock offers an unusual discount to shareholders as a result of an accounting wrinkle. And like In-N-Out, it's self-funded, with engaged owners, and offers a unique dining experience.

And one more personal note: My food-allergic son can eat there, too.

Bill's recommendation is up nearly 50%, but he sees years of high growth remaining. Find out what he's recommending -- and why -- with a 30-day free trial to Hidden Gems.

    In-N-Out has been cult like experience (in a good way) for over a decade. For a while, they only had restaurants in So. California (I live in No. California) and people lined up for hours when the first one opened in my area.

    The food is great and is the only fast food my family will eat. When you look in the kitchen you see food items that you could find on a farm (i.e. whole potatoes, tomatoes, heads of lettuce).

    My secret dream, short of them going public, is that the family will want to diversify their wealth and will sell to BRK. This is a company that Warren Buffet would love, if it were for sale.

    I hate to rain on "In n out"'s parade, but I am not a fan. McDonalds, has gone to salads, shakes, semi- healthy food. None of those options exists for In n Out. I have heard people rave about their fries. They are OK. A limited menu is my experience. I grew up in the Mid-west and often think/crave for those sliders. But really, they are nothing special other then the urge to want them because you can't have them. On a recent trip to Wisconsin, a group us stopped at a chain called "Cullvers" I think. People were bragging about their burgers. They were good and also a heart attack waiting to happen. People seemed to inhale the fat that oozed from them. I often think of having one of those burgers and if I could have one when ever I wanted, I probably would be 6 feet under already. What's my point: To those of us that In n Out is available right around the corner, it is just another burger joint. As far as an investment, I would look else where.

    Are you insane!? I've lived less than a 3 minute drive from In N Out my whole life and it is most assuredly not "just another burger joint". Every Friday through Sunday the only thing "around the corner" is the line. In N Out is the greatest burger West of the Mississippi. Even with the economic downturn they can fill a restaurant on a weeknight, hows that for brand strength?

    I think that twosense ought to just put the crack pipe down and walk away. When a new In N Out opened in my neighborhood, there was a line wrapped around the block for the drive-in and a packed eat in with standing room only FOR THREE SOLID MONTHS after they opened. It is not that insane after three years, but the place never has "no customers waiting". There is always cars in the drive in and people at the counter. If for some personal reason you don't like the food (like if you are a strict vegatarian who hates fries and is lactose intolerant), then OK, don't eat there, but as an investment opportunity in an excellent and very profitable company, it would be hard to beat if it ever went public.

    As a fan of great burgers, I am fortunate to be living on the west coast and working on the east. So, I get to enjoy both In-n-Out and Five Guys. Both are excellent in their own ways. If only planes traveled fast enough to have a DD Animal Style with Five Guys' fries...it would be a match made in heaven. By the way, if either ever goes public it will be a downhill slide to mediocrity - Wall Street eventually makes a mess of every restaurant it touches.

    Native of So Cal and have lived here most of my life (couple of assignments to Texas). This is a company that has been at their knitting for 60 years. Great business model:

    1. Consistency in everything they do. Even when the CEO died in a plane crash several years ago, the family kept the mission in sight.

    2. Low EE Turnover: They pay their staff higher than minimum wage, 20% above normal QSR. They train, train, train their staff.

    3. Raving Fans: People are extremely loyal and these fans recruit. My brother in law who lives in Oregon requests their T-shirts every year. They have mobile trucks that attend school function, fund raisers, even golf tournaments and continue to recruit.

    4. Volume: Comp store sales grow year over year. Great locations (normally near freeway exits, highly visibility).

    5. John 3:16 is on every cup.

    Yeah bro, the lines are usually long - because they are about the slowest "fast food" there is. They claim to only cook to order, sure. But when all you offer are burgers and fries, and cars are lined up at the drive thru window beyond the parking lot, you don't need to be a genius to realize you should throw some more burgers on the grill and drop the spuds into the fry making machine to make more sales. Waiting in the drive-thru line at the In-N -Out was always about people watching, not the food (unless you like mushy, grease-soaked french fries). In SoCal, people watching while in line is interesting; most other places - not so much. Probably the main reason why it's just another burger place outside of the golden state. I mean, get a grip people: Wendy's doesn't use frozen beef either. So what.

    Here's the insiders joke for those east of San Andreas fault line: A big reason In-N-Out Burger became a cult fad in SoCal back in the day because people wanted the bumper stickers. Really! Those "in the know" cut the stickers to change the word "Burger" to "urge". (“Shaka that, Dude!”) After a few years, the company took the large word "Burger" off the stickers and killed all the fun. But you dudes late to the party missed the joke so it kind of makes you feel duped now, eh? You can go hang that In-N-Out T-shirt in your closet right next to your Razor scooter, fat boy!
