Invest in a Fresh Opportunity
Would you like to build your own franchise empire? Now’s the time to do it!
For an entrepreneur that is looking to open a Pretzelmaker franchise location in an exciting city, Denver offers a fresh opportunity. Denver is more popular than ever right now, with many flocking to the city to visit and to live. In 2013, Denver placed sixth on Forbes’ list of Best Places for Businesses and Careers. Pretzelmaker’s delicious options may be a nice warm treat for those that are enjoying the chilly fresh air of the Denver Mountains.
Denver is nicknamed the mile-high city because its elevation is exactly one mile above sea level. This makes it one of the highest cities in the country. With the chill at that altitude in the Rocky Mountains, selling warm pretzels and other warm and filling comfort foods may be the way to go to generate revenues. The grab and go style of Pretzelmaker makes the store ideal for tourists and locals passing by on the way to ski or participate in the many activities offered in the area.
Frontier Town History
Denver was established during the Pike Gold Rush in 1858. The town started off as a mining town, but was quickly abandoned and reestablished as a frontier city that catered to miners in surrounding towns. Denver offered miners saloons, gambling, livestock, and goods. In 1870, a railroad was set up that linked the remote mountain town to the rest of the country, paving the way for may millionaires and many others to make their home in Denver. Luxurious hotels and cultural centers quickly helped to establish Denver as a world city.
Attractions and Entertainment
Denver has stayed somewhat close to its roots in the attractions and events that can be found. Every fall, Denver hosts the Great American Beer Festival which attracts visitors from around the world as both small breweries and large national breweries that call the area home collaborate. Denver also hosts the National Western Stock Show, which celebrates its roots as a livestock town. Denver has a large Mexican and Chinese population, so popular celebrations also include Cinco de Mayo, Dia de los Muertos, The Dragon Boat Festival, and the Chinese New Year. These events are sure to delight Pretzelmaker franchisees and may offer exciting sales opportunities.
Population and Expansion Prospects
As of 2013, nearly 650,000 residents called the city of Denver home. This makes Denver one of the most populous cities in the Mountain West. The population of Denver has been climbing at a fast rate in recent years and is currently enjoying an annual growth rate of over eight percent. Between the new residents that are flocking to the area and the droves of tourists that make their way through the city, a Pretzelmaker franchisee may be able to set up a highly successful shop with plenty of opportunity for growth and expansion.
