SkinnyFATS Restaurant Concept to Enter Colorado with NAI Affinity
SkinnyFATS is expanding into the Colorado market via Elevated Inc.’s (“Elevated”) vision for unique experiences. SkinnyFATS, with a slogan of “live healthy, live happy”, is a rapidly expanding franchise that was founded in Las Vegas in 2013. They have a unique menu with options for everyone and an inclusive culture. SkinnyFATS offers a split menu with a healthy side and a happy side. All of their healthy side dishes are under 600 calories and all of their happy side dishes don’t keep track. Think healthy food and comfort food.
The story of Elevated began with entrepreneur, David Timmons, in 2012. What started as two Cheba Hut restaurants in Fort Collins, Colorado, has grown into 20 restaurants throughout Colorado and Nevada today. Elevated is the largest franchisee of Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs, as well as SkinnyFATS. They are passionate about creating welcoming spaces for friends to meet and be their authentic selves. They spread good vibes and delicious food through their restaurants and are the go-to neighborhood spot for food, bar, patio, and friendly faces.
"We're thrilled to introduce SkinnyFATS to the Denver, and Colorado, community," said Timmons. "Our goal is to create a unique atmosphere and to provide an experience that people crave.”
Kyle Archer, Elevated’s CFO, also noted, "We believe that dining out should be an encompassing experience that caters to everyone's tastes. SkinnyFATS strikes the perfect balance by offering a variety of options for appetizers, lunch, and dinner, ensuring that every guest leaves satisfied."
SkinnyFATS plans on opening multiple locations to serve Coloradoans throughout the state. “We are excited for this concept and its energy to reach the Colorado community. Elevated Inc. has recently opened their first location at 7795 E. Belleview Avenue, Denver, in the heart of the Denver Tech Center. They have also signed a lease (along with Cheba Hut) for an iconic location on Pearl Street in Boulder, and they purchased a site at 101 S. Broadway in Denver. SkinnyFATS and Cheba Hut are actively looking to expand elsewhere in Colorado,” said Lauren Larsen, Advisor with NAI Affinity.
“Elevated is an outstanding operator and has a track record of success in the Colorado market with the Cheba Hut brand. We are looking forward to continuing to assist Elevated in future successes as they roll out the exciting SkinnyFATS brand along the Front Range over the coming years,” said Jake Hallauer, President of NAI Affinity.
