Denver — Slater’s 50/50, a full-service restaurant concept known for first creating the 50/50 burger patty made with 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, will soon make its Colorado debut. The restaurant will open at in Denver’s RiNo Arts District, located within The HUB, a mixed-use building featuring office, retail and restaurant tenants. Construction is slated to begin in the new year, with doors projected to open in late spring 2020.
The Denver expansion will be led by local franchisee Charles Murray. Murray left his 30-year career in investments to become the Slater’s 50/50 area development partner for Colorado.
“Once we decided on bringing Slater’s 50/50 to Colorado, we knew RiNo would be the ideal neighborhood for our debut,” says Murray. “RiNo is arguably the hottest neighborhood in Denver right now, and there are tons of exciting developments planned in the area. Our goal is to introduce the Slater’s 50/50 brand to Colorado starting in RiNo, with the ultimate vision to grow and add more restaurants over the next few years, and eventually branching out into other parts of the state.”
The upcoming RiNo restaurant will feature an indoor dining room for 136 guests, plus an outdoor patio facing Blake Street that will seat up to 24 guests. An island bar will be the centerpoint of the restaurant’s interior and will feature more than 50 craft beer taps and an extensive menu of signature cocktails. A private dining space will also be available for booking small parties, team lunches, and more.
Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 and currently operates 11 restaurants in California, Nevada, Texas and Hawaii, and has multiple restaurants being built and in development across the country, including Southern California, Colorado and New Jersey. For more information, visit www.slaters5050.com.
