Bloomberg's Billionaires Index has been unearthing a lot of secretive wealthy people lately, including In-N-Out's 30-year-old president and owner, Lynsi Torres. The burger chain, which has about 280 stores, is worth an estimated $1.1 billion. Here are some facts about Torres:
- Torres currently has half ownership of the company, but will take full control when she turns 35.
- Her grandparents, Harry and Esther Snyder, started the original In-N-Out hamburger stand in 1948.
- She became the sole heir of the company after a series of family deaths. After her grandfather passed away, her Uncle Rich took over, but Rich died in a plane crash when he was 41. Torres's father then took over, but died from a prescription overdose in 1999 at age 49. Her grandmother then took over the chain and left Lynsi Torres as the sole heir to the burger chain.
- Torres has very little management training and she doesn't have a college degree.
- The burger chain heir has a love for drag racing and is currently married to a race-car driver, her third marriage so far.
- She bought a house last year worth $17.4 million that comes with seven bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a pool, a tennis court, and more.
