If you haven't heard this news yet then that's impressive because everyone has been talking about the In-N-Out burger coming to Colorado Springs! The details are still in the works for it but location seems to be settled, the Victory Ridge Development (Interquest and Voyager). To prove it was the real deal In-N-Out Burger Vice President of Development Carl Arena issued the following statement:
"In-N-Out Burger is excited to be in the early planning stages of its expansion to the state of Colorado. We are working on plans to build a patty production facility and distribution center in Colorado Springs to support future restaurants in Colorado.
Colorado Springs is an ideal community for us to locate facilities to serve surrounding markets with fresh ingredients, including meat patties produced locally.At In-N-Out, we have always been thoughtful about expansion into new markets because it is very important that we are able to maintain the high quality and service standards established by our founders almost 70 years ago. We are extremely fortunate to have a number of loyal customers in Colorado and they have been encouraging us to open locations there for some time."
This is going to be a very a very tasty opportunity for Colorado as it seems this will lead to more and more locations opening all up and down the I-25 Corridor. I don't know about everyone else but I'm incredibly excited to have this burger franchise in our own backyard.
What can you follow up that delicious burger with? How about some natural, slow-churned ice cream made using turn-of-the-century rock salt and ice freezers to slowly mix ingredients to give it the best flavor. Lindsay Keller, who co-owns Josh & John's with husband John Krakauer, said the couple was attracted to the city's fast-growing north side, where newer residential areas are teeming with rooftops and families.
