Modern Market Eatery to Open First Drive-Thru Location

by Katie Lee

Denver — Modern Market Eatery, a Colorado-based fast-casual concept specializing in scratch-made foods using clean ingredients, will open the brand’s first drive-thru restaurant in Colorado Springs in the First & Main Town Center on Nov. 17.

The new company-owned restaurant is the third Modern Market Eatery location in Colorado Springs. Offering dine-in, drive-thru and delivery options, it will serve the full Modern Market menu, including the new winter menu, which launched on Nov. 1, featuring eight new dishes. The space offers seating for 84 guests between the dining room and patio.

The restaurant will also feature a “Mini Market” merchandise area that the brand launched earlier this year to provide diners with numerous locally made products, as well as Modern Market Eatery hats, mugs and more. The restaurant is also the brand’s third location to feature a double-sided assembly line in the kitchen that allows for quicker prep times.

“Opening our first drive-thru restaurant is just one of the many ways our team is working to reimagine fast food and show guests how healthy food can be a quick, convenient option for the entire family,” says Rob McColgan, co-founder and president of Modern Market Eatery. “This will be the first of many drive-thru locations we anticipate developing over the coming years to provide an even more efficient service model to handle the increasing volume of takeout orders.”

Modern Market Eatery was founded in Boulder, Colo., in 2009. It has nearly 30 locations across Colorado, Texas and Arizona, as well as the Denver International Airport and the campus of Notre Dame. For more information, visit and
