World of Beer Brewing Opens 37th Location in Denver

World of Beer (WOB), a thriving beer-centric tavern boasting an extensive collection of brews from around the globe, expands into Colorado at Cherry Creek on March 13 at 660 South Colorado Blvd. in Denver. This is the 37th location, and first in Colorado, for the craft beer concept boasting more than 500 different, ever-changing bottles and 60 rotating taps.

A 1,500 square-foot patio complements the 2,850 square-foot free standing building. The location is part of a new development featuring Hilton Garden Inn and Marriott Residence Inn, and will soon be occupied by multiple restaurants.

“I feel honored to have been a part of World of Beer’s growth from the very first franchise,” says Jason Rappaport, World of Beer Cherry Creek Owner. “We’re a big part of this craft beer revolution and it’s exciting to move into Colorado where there are more breweries than anywhere in the nation.”

Rappaport learned of the concept in 2008 when he spoke to the owner at the original World of Beer Westchase in Tampa, Fla., which is home to corporate headquarters. Rappaport and his partner Philippe Theodore own exclusive rights to World of Beer franchises in Tampa Bay, the greater Houston area, and the state of Colorado.

Denver Business Journal | Walmart Confirms Plans for Boulder Store

DAI-Walmart-US-logo 280Retailing giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc. intends to open a Walmart Neighborhood Market store in Boulder this fall, the Daily Camera reports.

Speculation has been rampant for months about Wal-Mart’s plans for Boulder. The company, which was previously denied the chance to open one of its Supercenters in town, now intends to open a smaller Neighborhood Market at Diagonal Plaza.

Diagonal Plaza is off 28th Street and Iris Avenue in north Boulder. The store proposed for the site is about 52,000 square feet, which amounts to a quarter the size of a Supercenter.

Denver Post | Sprouts Farmers Market’s new Longmont store open today

AR-121229974.jpg&MaxH=200&MaxW=295Sprouts’ new 29,000-square-foot store is located in the former Borders Bookstore space at 1101 S. Hover St., which has been empty since the bookstore closed in fall of 2011. Sprouts will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the company’s president and CEO, Doug Sanders, said its opening has been a long time coming.

“We’ve been working on getting to Longmont for several years,” said Sanders, who is expected to be present for the opening. “We were working on Longmont and Sunflower was working on Longmont, and we both kind of coveted that Longmont space.”

It was actually Boulder-based Sunflower Farmers Market that announced, in April, plans for a Longmont store. But that announcement was merely a formality. At the time Sunflower was in the process of merging with Phoenix-based Sprouts, and it was already known that after the two companies merged, all Sunflowers stores would become Sprouts. That merger was finalized in May.

The combined company gives Sprouts about 150 stores in eight states, about 11,000 employees and about $2 billion in revenue in 2012.

Denver Eater | Jax, Cuba Cuba, and Udi’s to Open in City Set Project

CitySetUdi’s, Jax Fish House, a version of Cuba Cuba, and a beer garden are coming to Glendale, all in the same development, City Set development set to open its doors with these attractions and more in the summer of 2013.

Udi’s, which already owns and operates several restaurants in the Denver metro area will open a new outpost, joining a fourth location of Jax Fish House. Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria, a casual sandwich-centric version of the Golden Triangle restaurant, will add some ethic flair to the offerings and World of Beers, a beer garden concept, will provide an additional draw.

The City of Glendale’s business-friendly environment has been credited by some of Eater’s sources for securing this attractive line-up of eateries. The entire site will likely be able to capitalize on the relatively new Colorado open container law, something not currently possible in the City of Denver.

20090129_soho_250x250Southern Hospitality, a barbecue restaurant concept co-created by Justin Timberlake, is planning a January 2013 opening for its first location outside New York, in Denver’s LoDo.

The eatery will be just three blocks from Coors Field in the 116-year-old St. Elmo Hotel on the corner of 17th and Blake streets.

Southern Hospitality Development Corp. (OTCQB: RIBS), developer of the Memphis-style barbeque restaurants, said Tuesday that construction continues on the new restaurant, which first was set to open in October.

“Our expansion into downtown Denver is an important milestone for Southern Hospitality,” said CEO Steve Cominsky. “The Southern Hospitality concept is one we believe will resonate well here. LoDo is certain to be a great market for us.”

The LoDo restaurant is the first of 10 slated for development by the company in key markets across the U.S. over the next three to five years.
