Smashburger Comes to Fort Collins

A group of Denver entrepreneurs is ready to unveil its burger venture in Fort Collins. Smashburger opens Friday at the Pads at Harmony, marking its first expansion outside of the Denver market.

Consumer Capital partners launched Smashburger a year ago and hope to open almost 500 eateries in the next five years.

“What does well in Denver will probably do well in Fort Collins, as well,” Joe Hodas, vice president of communications for CCP, told the Coloradoan in June, of the new restaurant, 2550 E. Harmony Road.

CCP has set up a contest for local bands to submit their own “smash hits,” a few who will be chosen to play at the grand opening. Details can be found at
