Chick-fil-A is long established as the only fast food chain that doesn't run from Christianity. They have been serving the Lord's Chicken since 1964.
It says "joins" in the title, but In-N-Out Burger has never made it a secret that they are pro-Christ. For instance, it says John 3:16 on the bottom of their cups.
Just putting the message on the bottom of their cups isn't enough. The owner and heiress of the burger chain, Lynsi Snyder, is now going public with how much Christ means to her publicly.
When I go to the West Coast, I enjoy having at least one meal at @InNOutBurger, one of the most successful hamburger chains in America. Lynsi Snyder, granddaughter of the founders, now serves as president/CEO & is very vocal about her Christian faith. 1/2 https://t.co/Uk25mYS10U

During an interview with The Christian Post, Snyder talked about how bad life became before she embraced Christ. She was able to put drug and alcohol addiction in her past, along with broken marriages and physical abuse along with much more. Snyder said she “finally found that the deep need in my heart can only be filled by Jesus and my identity in Him.”
She made a beautiful statement when she said that even though you have have overcame the obstacles of your past, you will need Christ in order to get past the obstacles that are yet to come.
“I have learned so much through my broken relationships along with the ups and downs that come through marriage,” she said. “I’ve been the one to hurt, and I’ve been hurt. I have gained insight and growth through both sides of the coin.”
“Prior to the journey of marriage, it’s so important to seek time and healing with Jesus,” she stressed. “Even if you are blessed to be healed of personal wounds and past relationship baggage, life will still bring hurdles and trials to overcome in your relationship.”
John 3:16 has been on their cups for years, but now they have decided that's not enough. There are now Proverbs 24:16 and Luke 6:35 on their products.
“It was my uncle Rich who put the Bible verses on the cups and wrappers in the early ‘90s, just before he passed away,” Snyder said to the Christian Post. “He had just accepted the Lord and wanted to put that little touch of his faith on our brand. It’s a family business and will always be, and that’s a family touch. In later years, I added verses to the fry boat, coffee, and hot cocoa cups.”
In-N-Out Burger is not just putting verses on containers. Snyder has taken things a step further when she started an organization called "Army of Love," which gives emotional support to people like her when her third marriage was falling apart.
“I was calling out to God as my third marriage was failing. I was in a place where I felt I couldn’t do ministry because my own heart and home were a mess,” she recounted. “My husband and I were in constant turmoil. I became desperate for the hope that I could be used by God despite my circumstances.”
While driving through New Orleans one day, Snyder heard Isaiah 61 in her head. The passage reads, in part: “He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”
“I knew that I would be a part of a ministry that would unify the body of Christ into soldiers who would reach out to one another and to the lost in the last days,” Snyder said. “Many people attend church, but the pool of discipleship is shallow, so I saw training modules online to disciple people and take them deeper than they may have gone attending church or Bible study. I envisioned this Army uniting various ministries and supporting churches and organizations.”
