The team behind Denver’s much-buzzed about Habit Doughnut Dispensary and Carbon Cafe & Bar are lighting up a second location of the co-branded concept. Patrons come for liquor-infused doughnuts and clever takes on cocktails, coffees and bites, but it’s the community that keeps them coming back—daily for 58% of them. Habit Carbon has re-envisioned how restaurants, bars and co-working spaces behave by making it about the customer, not the other way around.

Why you may want to invest
  1. Highly experienced management team: Already owns and operates three successful restaurants in Denver; has more than 30 years of hospitality experience each and over 100 years combined, including stints with Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Keller and Michael Mina Group
