Steak ‘n Shake celebrated the grand opening of its first restaurant in the state of Colorado in the city of Centennial, at 8271 S. Quebec. The official ribbon cutting ceremony takes place on Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. and will be hosted by franchisees Mark Clark and Connie Caruso.

“We are quite excited to bring Steak ‘n Shake to Colorado,” says Sardar Biglari, CEO of Steak ‘n Shake. “Each time we have opened in a new market over the last two years there has been a tremendous turnout which is building an ardent following.

“The Centennial Steak ‘n Shake is a freshly designed freestanding unit,” Biglari says. “The restaurant has been fashioned with refreshing notions of classic, timeless, and transcendent quality. At Steak ‘n Shake we have a dedication to a food culture that enlivens one’s palate who appreciates the finest in burgers and shakes. Coloradans will savor an experience that reflects the time-honored renown of the brand. We invite everyone to join in the grand opening.”

Steak ‘n Shake, founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois, by Gus Belt, pioneered the “better burger” segment of the restaurant industry. In addition to showcasing the new design, Steak ‘n Shake continues its 77-year-old tradition of serving a variety of Steakburgers and Milk Shakes, including the newest offerings: the Hickory Barbeque Steakburger, and seasonal Egg Nog, Peppermint Chip, and White Chocolate hand-dipped Milk Shakes.
