The Native American-owned restaurant Tocabe in Denver, Colorado has had impressive growth the last few years. They opened up a 2nd location in Greenwood Village (8181 E Arapahoe Rd Unit C) and debuted new items on their menu almost simultaneously (such as Posu Rice Bowls, Grilled Bannock, among others). Then in the summer of 2016, they added a food truck and took it for a spin around the Denver food and booze community. After that, they expanded their catering services by offering exclusive foods outside their listed menu items such as appetizers, salmon, and more. Just a few months ago they donated food and supplies to the water protectors at Standing Rock, which highlights Tocabe’s mission to give back to the community. Very recently Tocabe opened up online ordering for customers who want to order ahead and pick up.
Now, Tocabe is on track to open up another restaurant by the end of this summer. This time in Aurora, Colorado. Although date and location haven’t been announced yet, we are already excited and can’t wait to see the new restaurant.
The future looks bright for Tocabe, as they anticipate growth in not only their customer base but also in partnerships with other like-minded farmers and growers throughout Indian Country. They also hope to enhance their ties with the indigenous communities not only in Denver and Colorado but across the nation as well.
