Denver councilman trying to lure In-N-Out Burger to Front Range
DENVER — For some, it’s the Holy Grail of fast food burgers.
Now, Denver city councilman Albus Brooks is trying to lure California-based In-N-Out to Colorado.
“Had a great conversation with folks tied to In-N-Out execs. How hungry are y’all to have them come to Denver?,” Brooks posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
The response was overwhelmingly positive.
“Bring It!,” said one commenter. “This would be Awesome!!!,” said another.
“A family member has close ties to the CFO of In-N-Out,” Brooks, a native of Claremont, Calif., told the Denver Post. “Having the company look into coming to Denver, along with a number of other initiatives, will be on my agenda heading into 2012.”
Brooks says bringing In-N-Out Burger to Colorado would require a distribution center, possibly in Denver, to allow for multiple locations along the Front Range.
The groundswell of support for the idea prompted Brooks, who represents Denver’s 8th District, to post this follow-up on Facebook:
“Getting a little bit of buzz from this story. It is my goal to support local businesses while also attracting investment from responsible businesses. I’m looking for win-wins. Glad this started a bigger conversation.”
In addition to its food, In-N-Out Burger is also known for including pointers to Bible verses on its wrappers and cups.
