Lakewood, Washington Based RAM International Opens 8th Colorado Location

Lakewood, WA – The RAM Family of Restaurants and Breweries, based in Lakewood, recently opened its eighth C.B. & Potts location in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Known for Sporting Great Food and proudly serving their own Frosty, Handcrafted Beers, the Breckenridge Restaurant and Taproom is located near the center of downtown at 231 S. Main Street in a newly renovated building, “Potts was born in Colorado in 1974 and it has always been a dream of ours to open a restaurant in Breckenridge,” said Jeff Iverson, President of The RAM Family of Restaurants and Breweries. “The building has great character along with two spectacular patios that feature beautiful mountain views, our location is the best in town!”

The new restaurant is approximately 5800 square feet, with seating for 205 guests inside and an additional 100 on two outside patios. The menu boasts RAM favorites, including Legendary Burgers and piled high Sandwiches, tasty Ribs and Steaks, Beer Battered Fish & Chips, Fresh Salads, house favorite Mac & Cheese along with sustainable, grilled Alaskan Salmon. Iverson said, “Our team members serve their guest’s favorite foods, crafted with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.” The new Restaurant and Taproom also pours their own craft beers and Iverson added, “There’s really nothing better than an ice cold beer and a delicious meal after a day on the mountain! We are pouring our refreshing, medal-winning flagships and rotating seasonal beers that pair perfectly with our menu selections.”

Before opening to the public, the Breckenridge location held several pre-openings to help fine-tune their food, beverage and service. Guests were invited to bring a food donation that was collected on behalf of the Summit Family and Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC). FIRC is a nonprofit, working to build strong families and a strong community by providing people with the tools and education to be successful parents and community members.

Proudly serving superior quality food and fresh and local beers, the new location is a sports fan’s haven featuring state-of-the-art TV’s throughout the restaurant and lounge. “The new restaurant is warm, cozy and inviting, set in a comfortable, Colorado casual environment,” said Iverson. “We feel great about the market and have tremendous confidence in our Colorado team!”

RAM International opened its first Colorado location in Fort Collins over 40 years ago and in 2014 initiated a, unique for the industry, Employees Stock Option Plan (ESOP) where vested team members are now owners of the company. Iverson added, “Our team members own the restaurant and will take great pride in serving their guests.” The new Breckenridge location employs nearly 100 people.
