Hot Chicken chain leases former Pete’s Greek Town Cafe in Colfax

The shuttered Colfax diner will be replaced by a California chain of hot chicken stores.

Jason Beld, a local Dave’s Hot Chicken franchisee, told BusinessDen on Tuesday that he had rented building 2910 E. Colfax Ave., where Pete’s Greek Town Cafe used to be.

“It’s a very busy street and I think the overall vibe really matches our brand,” Beld said.

Beld and his business partner Mark Rogers, who also own several local restaurants, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, have already opened two of Dave’s establishments: 99 S. Broadway in Baker and 1615 Platte St. in LoHi.

The space is about 2,500 square feet and can accommodate about 45 people inside and 25 outside, Beld said.

The former diner is larger, about 5,500 square feet, Beld said. Franchisees will cut the footprint by using some storage space, and they will also create a patio that can accommodate 50 people. There will be another 40 or so seats inside.

As with two existing locations in Denver, the restaurant will have a takeout window.

Beld said he hopes to open it by June 1, although the timeline is heavily dependent on getting permission from the city for renovations.

Beld said his group is currently exploring suburban areas. He made special mention of Thornton and Littleton, although no leases were signed. There may be traffic lanes in the suburbs.

“We kind of triangulated downtown Denver,” Beld said. “This is a city brand, and we are a city brand. It seems to us that the next step is the suburbs. “

Dave’s Hot Chicken offers a fairly limited menu. Besides hot Nashville-style chicken, available as a sandwich or tender form, there are fries, milkshakes and a couple of other dishes like kale.

Dave’s competes with several hot shoals of chicken in the Denver area, including Music City Hot Chicken, Lea Jane’s Hot Chicken, The Budlong Hot Chicken, Blazing Bird, Birdcall, and Chicken Rebel to name a few.
