Lynsi Torres, 30, is being helmed as America’s youngest billionaire, but very few people have heard of her. According to RadarOnline, Torres is the owner and president of the West Coast fast food chain and celebrity hangout In-N-Out Burger, and is reportedly worth $1.1 billion.
The publication reports that Torres’ grandparents founded the privately held company in 1948. Upon her grandmother’s death in 2006, Torres became the sole heir, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. She gained half ownership of the company through a trust when she turned 30 and will get full control at 35.
Torres has no formal training or college degree, and keeps a low profile. A few restaurant industry insiders have not heard of her until now. “I have no clue about her,” California restaurant consultant Janet Lowder told Bloomberg. “I was even surprised there was a granddaughter.”
Torres’ personal life is not so quiet, writes RaderOnline. She has reportedly been married three times and competes in National Hot Rod Association races like the Super Gas and Top Sportsman Division 7 categories. Her third husband, Val Torres Jr. is also a race car driver.
The young billionaire recently splurged on a $17.4 million mansion in California, which reportedly spans 16,600 square-feet with 7 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a tennis court, pool, and vast outdoor space.
