Your Hub – DenverPost.com | New King Soopers to host grand opening for Commerce City store

The massive King Soopers Marketplace, at East 104th Avenue and Chambers Road in Commerce City, will host a grand opening on June 27. The store has been under construction for about a year.

The store is one of the largest King Soopers in the state and will offer an expanded variety of products, according to Kelli McGannon, marketing spokesperson for King Soopers. It is one of just two such stores in the metro area, and one of four in the state.

The store is about twice as big as traditional King Soopers operations, which typically range in size from 55,000 to 65,000-square feet. It will offer up a variety of specialty items not usually found at traditional grocery stores, such as dinnerware, small appliances and jewelry.

Commerce City signed off on an incentive package to lure King Soopers. The deal, which was valued at approximately $2 million, provides incentives to both the grocer and the developer of the land, Shea Properties.

Nation’s Restaurant News | Top 100: Top 5 fastest-growing chains

This story is part of NRN’s Top 100 special report, a proprietary census ranking the foodservice industry’s largest restaurant chains and companies by sales and unit data, among other metrics. The full report is available only to Nation’s Restaurant News magazine subscribers, and is part of the June 25 issue. Subscribe here.

Growth chains: Who’s on top?

That is the question industry professionals and interested observers in the financial, supplier, consulting and educational sectors want answered as they scope out competitors, prospective acquisitions, clients or case studies.

Here, we present the top five fastest-growing chains, based on the change in U.S. systemwide sales in fiscal 2011, or the year ended closest to December 2011, versus fiscal 2010. These chains are the current stars of the restaurant industry, with their expansion based not only on available runway for national growth, but also a clear consumer proposition.

While these top five growth chains favor sandwich and fast-casual players, two entries from the casual-dining segment, which was particularly battered by the recession, also made the cut.

Get to know these five chains’ sales growth, market share, U.S. unit growth and more.

1. Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Lorton, Va. (Sandwich)
2. Jimmy John’s

4. BJ’s Restaurants,
Huntington Beach, Calif. (Casual Dining)
5. Cheddar’s Casual Café,

Denver Business Journal | King Soopers unveils new store model at Reunion

It’s unlike any King Soopers that Denver-area shoppers ever have seen.

The new King Soopers MarketPlace in Commerce City, just west of the Reunion community, opens June 27. At 123,000 square feet, it’s more than double the size of regular King Soopers stores. It will offer home furnishings, a vitamin store and even a jewelry store.

The store, at Chambers Road and East 104th Avenue, is the fourth MarketPlace-format store in Colorado but the first in metro Denver. It’s part of the grocery chain’s strategy of adapting each store to its market to gain an advantage in the hyper-competitive Denver …

Boulder Daily Camera | Boulder’s boom: More than 30 building projects on tap for next 2 years

Big changes are brewing in Boulder.

The city is on the brink of a building boom that — in relatively short time — could alter the look and feel of large parts of the city.

The developments that are expected to come online within the next two years are on track to add 1,500 apartments, a few hundred new hotel rooms and a large volume of new office and retail space.

Of the dozens of projects either in the planning process or already under construction, the Daily Camera has identified more than 30 private developments that are significant in size, location or historical context.

“This long list certainly contradicts the notion that Boulder is not growing — and, indeed, is a note of caution that we not rush to develop them all at once,” City Councilwoman Suzanne Jones wrote in an e-mail to the Camera. “There are finite options for new development and redevelopment within Boulder, so we need to proceed with deliberation, creativity and even restraint to ensure that this pulse of building activity reflects Boulder’s long-term values and community aspirations.”

Denver Business Journal | Goodwill Industries plans another Outlet World

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Goodwill Industries of Denver is growing again.

Building on the momentum of 2011, when it opened a new Outlet World in south Denver, an upscale boutique in Cherry Creek North earlier this year, and its 28th Denver-area retail store in Stapleton last month, the nonprofit company has just leased a 220,000-square-foot warehouse off I-70 and Kearney Street for another Outlet World.

“Goodwill is growing and in doing so we’re creating new opportunities for our employees, shoppers, donors and program participants,” CEO Jesse Wolff said in a news release. “Adding this warehouse to our operations will create new jobs and will allow us to serve our community even better.”
