Medford officials are bracing for a popular California-based company to open its first restaurant in the Beaver State.

The In-N-Out is rumored to open in Southern Oregon on Sept. 9 and wait times are believed to reach three hours. 

“I know I wouldn’t wait in line for that long, but some people will,” said Alex Georgevitch, city transportation manager.

Georgevitch and other city officials met with In-N-Out representatives recently to discuss a traffic plan to prevent backups on Highway 62 or even onto nearby Interstate 5. The Oregon Department of Transportation has expressed concern about potential traffic problems on the freeway or off-ramps.

In Portland, residents aren’t as excited about a California incursion, apparently.

Residents are reportedly placing “No Californians” stickers on real estate signs in protest of rising prices.

“A lot of these homes are going into bidding wars and going over ask price,” [Quinn] Irvine [of M Realty] said. “And a lot of these guys are getting outbid. And I think they’re going around to agents who have properties that have sold over ask price and putting anti-California stickers.”

[Lori] Fenwick, of Premiere Property Group, said somebody covered her name on one of her signs, replacing it with a phrase: “STOP THE BUBBLE.” Both Fenwick’s and Irvine’s listings were in North Portland’s Arbor Lodge neighborhood, they said.
