Our story begins in 2017 when a man by the name of Danny Newman purchased an old gas station at 4200 West Colfax Avenue. The building, which was originally purchased by a mining company in 1922, almost became a tiny motel with just two rooms, but Newman's plans changed once COVID came along.

Newman became intrigued with the food truck parks he'd come across in cities like Portland and Austin and decided to convert his old gas station into Colorado's first of its kind.
