Sauce on the Blue will be opening another location, this time at Copper Mountain, called Sauce on Copper.

The new location is taking the place of the former C.B. Grille. The restaurant will seat 150 people, and the owners hope to coordinate its grand opening with the opening day of Copper Mountain Resort, Nov. 17. 

Tim Applegate, managing partner of Sauce on the Blue, said owners had heard about open vacant storefronts in that area and that people wanted to get “good food” back into those spaces. With business at the other locations going well, owners looked to capitalize on that by expanding.

“We are really excited about it. It’s a great location,” Applegate said. “We’re going to have room for more private parties, more room for outdoor events such as weddings and a beautiful patio that overlooks the mountains.”

The opening of this location follows three others: Sauce on the Blue in Silverthorne, Sauce on the Creek in Avon and Sauce on the Maggie in Breckenridge.

The menu will be the exact same as Sauce on the Blue with all the fan favorites including penne gorgonzola and spaghetti bolognese.

Sauce on the Blue opened in 2016 and quickly became a household name in Summit County copping some “Best of Summit Awards” shortly after opening. The restaurant was opened by Shervin Rashidi of Rocky Mountain Hospitality alongside several other investors, including Applegate.

The schedule will also be the same. Sunday through Thursday hours will be 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday hours will be 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Happy hour will be from 4-5:30 p.m. everyday. During this time, 10-inch pizzas and appetizers will be 25% off and small plates will be $9 dollars off. A house glass of wine and well drinks will be $7 during happy hour, and specialty cocktails and premium beers will be $1 off.
