The Denver-based chain, with 28 restaurants in Colorado, California, Arizona and Texas, plans to open in April in the new Chapel Hills East development under construction at North Academy Boulevard and Agora Point.
Snooze will serve as the near-4,000-square-foot anchor tenant in the 8,295-square-foot development just north of the Woodmen Road, at 7587 N. Academy Blvd., near Whole Foods. A large dog-friendly patio is part of the plan.
Also planned for the development is a 1,491-square-foot Bishops Cuts/Color unisex barbershop salon. The project is designed for a third future retailer, yet to be named, for the remaining 3,000 square feet of space.
Fairchild said the company has been eyeing an expansion to the Pikes Peak region since as early as 2012 and has been in search of the right Colorado Springs neighborhood to build a restaurant.
Fairchild said Snooze plans to hire 75 employees, which they refer to as “Snoozers,” to staff the Colorado Springs location.
“This project provides the opportunity to introduce two unique brands with individual, distinct character to the Colorado Springs area,” said Nick Kitaeff, development director with Confluent Development, the Denver-based real estate and development firm behind the project.
At the company’s latest opening in Dallas, more than $17,000 was raised and donated to community partners there.
The company raised $600,000 companywide for its community partners last year and is on track to donate more than $800,000 to partners in 2018.
The Snooze menu includes egg and pancake dishes, breakfast burritos and tacos, light options, barista coffee drinks and morning cocktails.
