City Announces Newly Designated Denver Legacy Businesses

The British Bulldog, in Denver's Five Points neighborhood, is among the businesses newly designated as a Denver Legacy Business.

Denver Economic Development & Opportunity (DEDO) has announced 37 businesses that have most recently received Legacy Business status. A Denver Legacy Business is defined as a longstanding, independent business that has contributed to community character and vitality and holds cultural significance. Among other criteria, the business has operated for more than ten years, has annual gross revenue between $30,000 and $5 million, and currently has a brick-and-mortar location in the city. 

“We’re delighted to expand our Legacy Business Program with a strong roster of well-loved, well-known names in our diverse marketplace,” said Mayor Mike Johnston. “It is critical that we nurture and celebrate these longtime businesses. Joining the ranks as Legacy Business will give them the access and resources to accelerate and grow.”

The complete roster and map of Denver’s Legacy Businesses can be found on the program registry.

“This program honors not just the longevity of a business’s operations, but also a broader perspective of how each applicant has enriched neighborhoods, brought people together, and enhanced our urban culture,” said Adeeb Khan, executive director of DEDO. “As the program registry expands, the city is encouraging local residents to support all that these unique and longstanding local businesses have to offer.”

This program is modeled after other successful implementations of Legacy Business designations in San Francisco, CA and Austin, TX. Businesses can self-nominate or be nominated by others. Denver’s program will continue to expand with future application periods and rounds of honorees announced.
