DENVER - If you like burgers how can you not be a fan of the California chain In-N-Out Burger? And if you’ve never tried it, one could potentially be in Colorado’s future.
Recently, District 8 City Councilman Albus Brooks posted to his Facebook page that he had a great conversation “with folks tied to In-N-Out execs. How hungry are y’all to have them come to Denver?"
The post set-off a flurry of comments on his page — an overwhelmingly majority of which were likes.
“A family member has close ties to the CFO of In-N-Out,” said Brooks, a native of Claremont, Calif. “Having the company look into coming to Denver, along with a number of other initiatives, will be on my agenda heading into 2012."

BURGERS AND MORE
In-N-Out Burger is one of the businesses Gazette readers clamored for when they were asked early this year what businesses they can’t live without. The biggest request was for Trader Joe’s, but company officials said then that Colorado and Colorado Springs were not in the company’s two-year plan. Some wishes have come true, though. H&M, the trendy fashion company out of Sweden, opened a store in Denver this year. And Blue Bell ice cream came to Colorado Springs grocery stores.
