CraftWorks moves HQ to Broomfield

CraftWorks moves HQ to Broomfield

CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries is moving to Broomfield.  The company, which operates restaurants and brewpubs such as Rock Bottom and Old Chicago, is to move its Colorado headquarters from Louisville to Broomfield.

CraftWorks has leased a space on the 5th floor of the Arista Place office building, which is situated in the Arista development located off US 36 in Broomfield. The space covers 10,000 square feet, according to officials from Wiens Capital Management, the developer of the Arista project.  CraftWorks will be making its relocation from 248 Centennial Park in Louisville.

The restaurant operator will become the occupant of the 8001 Arista Place space, which was vacated in 2011 by First Tiers Bank when the Colorado Division of Banking closed it down.  Officials say that the move is expected to take place on 1st February next year.

The arrival of CraftWorks, together with the recent arrival of the headquarters of Famous Brands International, means that the six-story Arista Place building is now fully leased, says Wiens Capital spokesman Joe Zepeda.

CraftWorks officials were unable to be contacted for comments.  The company was formed two years ago – back in late 2010 – when Centerbridge Capital Partners LLC, a private equity firm based in New York, purchased the locally founded Rock Bottom Restaurants and the Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Gordon Biersch.

Because of the transaction, CraftWorks kept headquarters operations in both Louisville and Tennessee.  The privately held CraftWorks also operates other brands such as the Walnut Brewery, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Group and ChopHouse Brewery.
