Youngest female billionaire in America now is Lynsi Torres, the low-profile owner of In-N-Out BurgerBy Angel Cuala on Feb 5, 2013 in Business, Finance, United States •
The youngest female billionaire in America today is Lynsi Torres, Bloomberg reports. Torres, 30, who is now the owner and president of In-N-Out Burger restaurant chain that started in Baldwin Park, California back in 1948, is also being dubbed as one of the youngest female billionaires in the world, or the Billionaire Burger Queen.

According to a report at Bloomberg on Monday, February 4, 2013, In-N-Out Burger, which Lynsi inherited from her parents, is now a fast-food empire worth more than $1 billion, based on the latest Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index. In-N-Out Burger has 281 outlets in the US, as of September 2012.
As noted by Bloomberg, Lynsi Torres was the only heir to In-N-Out Burger when her grandmother Esther Snyder passed away in 2006 at the age of 86. Esther and her husband Harry Snyder founded In-N-Out in 1948. The couple had only two sons, Harry Guy and Rich. Guy died in 1993, and Rich, Lynsi‘s father, passed away in 1999.
Since Harry Snyder passed away earlier n 1976 and Lynsi is the only child of her parents, she solely inherited the food chain and will receive her final shares on her 35th birthday. She is also reported to be not holding a college degree and has married times, and is now married to contractor and drag racer, Val Torres Jr.
And just like her father and current husband, Lynsi Torres also loves drag racing. Back in August, she was said to have bought a 16,600 square-feet mansion with 7 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and a whole bunch of amenities, in Bradbury, California for over $17 million, as described at Realtor.com.
However, the Billionaire Burger Queen keeps a low-profile image and does not entertain media interviews; with Bloomberg noting that their invitation to interview her was declined, which makes her even more mysterious. Nevertheless, In-N-Out Burger is always known to have efficient workers and quality products, which magically attracts customers.
