In-N-Out Burger Is (Finally) Coming To Colorado

The wildly popular burger chain will enter the Centennial State market in Colorado Springs.

Burger-loving Denverites rejoiced upon reading the news in Denver City Council president Albus Brooks’ tweet this morning: In-N-Out Burger is finally coming to Colorado.

The California-based chain, which has a loyal following in the West, is in the early planning stages of bringing a distribution center and restaurant to a Colorado Springs mixed-use development project, according to a Thursday morning press release. In-N-Out purchased about 23 acres of land on the 160-acre project, called Victory Ridge, says Andrew Klein, a principal at Westside Investment Partners, the firm working with the mixed-use site.

In a statement to 9 News, In-N-Out’s vice president of development, Carl Arena, confirmed the news, adding, “We are working on plans to build a patty production facility and distribution center in Colorado Springs to support future restaurants in Colorado.” The company’s first Colorado outpost will be located at Victory Ridge.

Now the bad news: We’ll have to wait quite awhile before we can chow down on a in-state Double Double. Construction on the north Colorado Springs site is expected to take about five years, according to Klein, and there is no timeline in place just yet for In-N-Out’s entry on the Centennial State dining scene. All we can say is watch out, Shake Shack—looks like there’s going to be another big player in the Colorado burger game.
