Boulder-based Snarf’s Sandwiches opened its 15th Colorado location on Friday, at the corner of South Broadway and Florida Avenue.
Snarf’s adds a new fast-casual lunch and dinner option to the South Broadway and Platt Park neighborhoods, which are experiencing a boom in housing development and a turnover in businesses. Just down the street, the latest craft brewery, Alternation, is about to open. Earlier this year, Morning Collective and The Post Brewing moved into nearby Rosedale.
Snarf’s took over a Sinclair gas station at 1490 S. Broadway that sat vacant for decades. Founder Jimmy Seidel says he prefers finding existing spaces to renovate for a Snarf’s buildout. Working this time with architect Shaun Minné, Seidel kept the Sinclair’s jutting exterior roof and installed underneath it an outdoor patio.
Just like previous locations, the shop sells toasted sandwiches and salads and offers a catering menu. In line with Snarf’s Denver University location, draft and canned beers and wine also are available at the new spot. The first Snarf’s sandwich shop opened in Boulder in 1996, and the brand has since spread to Chicago, St. Louis, and Austin.
Status: Snarf’s is now open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily at 1490 South Broadway.
