Troy Guard and the TAG Restaurant Group announced their first food vendor at Grange Hall, the upcoming food hall and micro-brewery: The Crack Shack. Troy Guard and his partners on this project, Kevin Hawkins and Ken Himel, are working to transform the nearly 13,000 square-foot space into a community focused place to gather, eat and play—and gourmet fried chicken is the first of several exciting concepts coming to the space. Grange Hall is anticipated to open later this summer.
Says Guard, “I tried The Crack Shack years ago in San Diego and of course thought it was some damn good chicken! I love their vibe, their food, the name – I love how much fun they are having making such quality food. It really fits with everything we are hoping for at Grange Hall. I think folks in Denver are going to be super excited to get their hands on one of these chicken sandwiches!”
The Crack Shack team is equally excited to be making their Denver debut. Says, Dan Pena, Director of Operations, on the expansion, “Denver is such a cool, down to earth city with a strong culinary scene, so it felt like a natural fit. Being in the food hall allows us to slowly introduce ourselves to a community we can’t wait to be a part of, while we finalize additional leases in the market.”
