Denver — Slater’s 50/50, the nationally recognized burger concept known for inventing the 50/50 burger patty made with 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, celebrated the grand opening of its first Denver restaurant on July 24, 2020. The new location is opening in the RiNo Arts District’s The Hub, a mixed-use building featuring office, retail and restaurant tenants, located at 3600 Blake St.
“After a 30+ year career in the investment industry, I decided to do something completely different — open a restaurant,” says Charles Murray, owner of Slater’s 50/50 Denver. “I fell in love with Slater’s back in 2010 and visited often, as my travels took me to Southern California. In 2018, I signed on to partner with Slater’s to bring the concept to Colorado — and RiNo specifically — as I felt it would fit well in the neighborhood. Ultimately, our vision is to continue growing the brand and adding more restaurants across the state, both in Denver and in other areas.”
Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 and operates 12 restaurants in Colorado, California, Nevada, Texas and Hawaii, and has multiple restaurants being built and in development across the country. The restaurant concept is owned by Elite Restaurant Group, a multi-concept operator focused on fostering growth for emerging restaurant chains, which plans to aggressively grow the Slater’s 50/50 brand across the U.S. in the next few years.
