Summit County receives 130 applications for 5 star program in its 1st day

As of 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 18, 130 local restaurants had applied for Summit County’s 5 Star Business Certification Program.

The county received its approval Friday from the state for its variance request to implement the program. According to a news release, restaurants that are approved for the program can open immediately.

Although the county has not yet released a complete list of certified restaurants, some restaurants have posted about their approval. Dillon Dam Brewery posted on Facebook that it will be opening indoor dining at 4 p.m. Friday. Timberline Craft Kitchen & Cocktails in Silverthorne and Outer Range Brewing Co. in Frisco posted that they received their approval, as well.



The high number of applications will not come as a surprise to many in the restaurant community. If certified, the restaurants will be able to open with indoor dining at 25% capacity or up to 50 people.

The jurisdiction with the most applications was Breckenridge with 64 received so far, Summit County Public Health Department spokesperson Nicole Valentine wrote in an email.



Unincorporated Summit County has received 26 applications and is followed by Frisco with 19 applications and Silverthorne with 13. Only eight restaurants have applied in Dillon.

The application for the program will remain open for restaurants. To apply, restaurant owners can visit SummitCountyCo.gov/5star.
