Usually, lying liars are lying. But this time it’s for real.

Rumors that In-N-Out will come to Denver are as regular as the tides of the burger joint’s homeland. Usually, lying liars are lying. But this time it’s for real.

Hold onto your butts, In-N-Out is coming to … Colorado Springs.

Denver City Council President Albus Brooks broke the news this morning, tweeting a screen shot of a press release, and Andy Klein with Westside Investment Partners Inc. confirmed the news to Denverite.

In-N-Out is under contract to purchase land at the Victory Ridge mixed-use development in north Colorado Springs, at Interquest and Voyager parkways.

The distribution center In-N-Out requires nearby before it can open a restaurant will also be in Colorado Springs and, according to the press release, it will “support future growth in Colorado.”

There is no opening date right now.

Here’s what In-N-Out Vice President of Development Carl Arena said in a statement:

In-N-Out Burger is excited to be in the early planning stages of its expansion to the state of Colorado. We are working on plans to build a patty production facility
and distribution center in Colorado Springs to support future restaurants in Colorado.

Colorado Springs is an ideal community for us to locate facilities to serve surrounding markets with fresh ingredients, including meat patties produced locally.

At In-N-Out, we have always been thoughtful about expansion into new markets because it is very important that we are able to maintain the high quality and service standards established by our founders almost 70 years ago. We are extremely fortunate to have a number of loyal customers in Colorado and they have been encouraging us to open locations there for some time.

Because we are still in the early development phase, we don’t yet have a timeline for the construction of either our support facilities or future restaurants.

However, the steps we are taking now represent the first of many on the road to serving customers in Colorado.
