The company announced plans to build a 9,000-square-foot store, with a full-service fresh grocery, wine, liquor and deli with seating, as a part of a planned Origin Hotel.
Marczyk Fine Foods has two locations in Denver, 770 E. 17th Ave. in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and at 5111 East Colfax Ave.
“This is not our first rodeo,” said Pete Marczyk, co-founder and CEO of Marczyk Fine Foods, in a press release. “Our first two stores opened before the neighborhoods were vibrant. We create a fun and friendly experience for our customers to shop, capped off by special events including our popular Friday Burger Night in the summer, and our annual pig roast.”
It becomes one of a growing number of businesses announcing plans to move to the 105-acre former Westminster Mall site.
“We were attracted to this site because of the commitment the city has made to build a true downtown with different developers and users that share a common vision”, Marczyk said.
The grocery and deli would be located on the first floor of a proposed hotel being built in the southwestern corner of the former mall site. It would be the second Origin Hotel in the Denver area. Developers the Thrash Group are currently building a hotel near Interstate 70 near Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In the release, they describe Origin Hotels as an independent hotel collection with experience-driven culture for explorers, travelers, and experience junkies.
“In our first meeting with Pete, we immediately realized how much the Marczyk ideals lined up with our Origin brand,” said Walker Thrash, partner with the Thrash Group, in the release. “We want to be the most local hotel in the area and it made sense to partner with the premier local fine foods grocer. We aim to be the starting point for the traveler’s experience in Westminster, and are excited about the offerings we can explore together.”
The hotel developers are also planning to build space in their lobby for another retail store, although they have not announced an agreement..
