Food and beverage options in Breck will expand next month as C.B. & Potts Restaurant and Taphouse opens at 231 S. Main Street.

Founded in 1971, C.B. & Potts, which opened its first locale in Ft. Collins, is owned by the RAM International Family of Restaurants. The soon-to-be-opened Breck location will be the eighth C.B. & Potts in Colorado.

The location at 231 S. Main Street is approximately 5,800 square feet and will seat 205 guests inside with an additional 100 seats available on the patio.

Jeff Iverson, president of RAM International, praised the location, which used to be home to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

“The building has great character along with two spectacular patios that feature beautiful mountain views,” he said.

The menu will feature items popular at other C.B. & Potts locations, including piled-high sandwiches, burgers, ribs, steaks, blackened chicken, Alaskan salmon, beer battered fish and chips and fresh salads.

Plus you can wash it all down with one of C.B. & Potts own handcrafted brews. They are in the midst of “Celebrating Great Beers for 20 Years,” as the first brewery location opened and began brewing craft beers in 1995.

“Our chefs do an outstanding job creating delicious menu choices that can stand alone or pair perfectly with C.B. & Potts craft brewed beers,” Iverson said. “Nothing is better than an ice cold beer after a day on the mountain and C.B. & Potts Breckenridge will be pouring our refreshing, medal-winning flagships and rotating seasonal beers.”

In 2014, C.B. Potts initiated an employee stock option plan (ESOP) that allows vested team members to own a piece of the company.

“Our team members own the restaurant and will take great pride in serving their guests great food, crafted with the freshest locally sourced ingredients,” Iverson said.

The new Breck location will employ approximately 90 people.

Elevate coSpace starts Breck partnership

Elevate coSpace, whose Frisco location just celebrated its first birthday, has announced an expansion to Breckenridge.

In its inaugural year, Summit County’s first coworking space hosted 109 meetups, assisted seven businesses getting launched and served as a home base for hundreds of entrepreneurs and innovators.

The expansion is made possible through a partnership with Hub Breckenridge, a full service technology boutique founded by James Lee. He sees the pairing as a natural extension of the services he offers and considers it an opportunity to introduce the coworking model to his hometown of Breck.

“Coworking is an intregral part of a thriving startup community,” Lee said. “The partnership between Elevate and Hub Breckenridge will make Breck an even more amazing place to start a new business or grow a business.”

Elevate has also just launched a new digital arts program and plans to expand educational offerings and programs in both Frisco and Breckenridge.

Amy Kemp, an Elevate coSpace co-founder, said the concept involves more than just a flexible workspace or renting a cool desk.

“Coworking is all about collaboration and community,” she noted. “Our new partnership exemplifies that. They’re some of the most creative, dynamic and brilliant entrepreneurs in the Rockies.”

From Lee’s perspective the new venture could open still undiscovered doors.

“As a serial entrepreneur, I know it’s important to have the support of experienced business owners, as well as to have the energy of collaboration and new ideas,” he said. “The partnership will bring a new mindset and new tools and support systems for entrepreneurs in Breck.”

Elevate plans to open in Hub Breckenridge’s new ski-in, ski-out Main Street Station location in December.
