I came across two companies that have announced their move to our state, and I thought it would be a good idea to share some of their information:
North Face – The VF Corporation, Which is known for outdoor clothing/apparel, has announced a total of 800 jobs that they will be moving to Colorado. Currently, they have boasted an average salary of $185k a year for it’s employees, and this will be a big economic growth for the state.
Smucker’s Uncrustables – If you have kids, you probably already know about the frozen sandwiches, but you may have not known that they are opening a new $340M facility in Colorado that could employ as many as 500 people!

Also, I simply like the idea of buying local! So, I thought it would be a good idea to promote three of my favorite local restaurants chains that are either from Colorado, or call Colorado their headquarters:
Red Robin has history in making burgers that dates back to 1940. It has used the phrase “America’s Gourmet Burgers & Spirits,” and has gained a reputation in serving it’s Steak Fires along with “Freckled Lemonade” – great place to take the family for a good burger.
Like the name says – noodles are their expertise! Their menu ranges from various styles of mac and cheese, to a bowl that has Thai Green Curry and shrimp. They built their concept on the idea of freshness – and I would call them one of the champions in the fast casual restaurant space.
Founded on the concept of healthy Japanese food, this is another restaurant that emphasizes freshness in their concept. They have a focus on cooking techniques around food that is either grilled or steamed, and I would also market them as another leader in the fast casual restaurant space.
