“Once we start building a new site, it usually takes about five to six months to build a restaurant and open it up for business. Even so, there is still some preparatory work to be done before we can even start construction. Therefore, it would be premature to comment on a schedule or possible opening date, “Arena told CBS4.

“We are very excited about this great location in Thornton and appreciate our customers who shared their excitement with us,” he said.

Another location is expected in Loveland.

Loveland Mayor’s Office Don Overcash announced on his Facebook page that Galloway and Company is working with the city’s planning department to build an in-n-out restaurant in an area that is currently the closed Mimi’s Cafe located on Centerra Marketplace at 5704 McWhinney Blvd.

In-N-Out opened three locations in Colorado last year. The first opened in Aurora and Colorado Springs in November 2020. In Aurora, people lined up outside on opening day and some waited for hours.

The queue to pass through was wrapped around the shopping center in the city center, creating traffic problems in the surrounding streets. Once the police issued a warning that no one else should queue because the waiting time was more than 12 hours.

Another In-N-Out was opened in February 9171 W. Westview Road in Lone Tree

The burger chain confirmed it will be opening another location in Castle Rock, and officials said they are also considering opening locations in Lakewood and Fort Collins.
