Growling Stomachs On The Decline In Wash Park! Spicy Pickle(R) Opens New Company-Owned Location

Denver's Own "Top Sandwich" Opens Doors at 1298 S. Broadway, Giving South Wash Park Residents A Taste of One of America's Fastest-Growing Fast Casual Restaurant Concepts

December 21, 2007 // // DENVER, CO - The smorgasbord of healthy dining choices in Denver's Wash Park district broadened significantly today, as Spicy Pickle(tm) fast casual restaurants (OTC BB: SPKL) announced the grand opening of its new company-owned restaurant at 1298 South Broadway. Home not only to an expansive array of culinary-inspired sandwiches and salads, but also the company's new corporate training center and test kitchen, the Washington Park Spicy Pickle will offer local diners a healthy and delicious alternative for both lunch and dinner. A full range of catering choices is offered as well.

"Our newest Spicy Pickle in Denver is a very special location. Our customers will get the very best we have to offer-especially when you consider our new corporate bakery is right next door," said Tony Walker, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of Spicy Pickle. "This location will receive lots of attention from the company, and our customers will definitely benefit through a unique and flavorful menu, top-notch service, and some of the best ideas in fast casual food today."

Because the new South Broadway Spicy Pickle will serve as the main training facility for Spicy Pickle franchisees from across the country, patrons will consistently experience enthusiastic, high-quality customer service. Bringing in future Spicy Pickle operators and their management teams to Denver for training will benefit the local economy as well.

Local Feel, Unique Choices

As is typical with Spicy Pickle restaurants, the new Wash Park location has a uniquely local feel. Each location takes on the character of its neighborhood-a commitment reflected in the singular décor of the new Wash Park location. What's more, the chef-inspired menu features high-quality, imaginative and fresh choices with flavors from around the world.

Spicy Pickle patrons can select from eight different hot pressed panini sandwiches ranging from the Sausalito Bandido-a spicy combo of Sausalito turkey, roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, pepperjack cheese and chipotle mayo spread-to the Bastille, a vegetarian mix of portabello mushrooms, roasted red peppers, smoked mozzarella, red onions, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts and sundried tomato mayo.

And that's just the beginning. The sub sandwich smorgasbord includes mesquite turkey, roast beef, mortadella (an Italian bologna), capocolla (spicy Italian ham), seven other types of meats, plus tuna. Every meat is the highest quality-no preservatives, fillers or MSG-and all menu items are prepared to order to ensure freshness.

Eight cheeses and dozens of spreads and toppings, all made fresh daily, are also on the list, piled on a choice of freshly-baked artisan ciabatta or rosemary focaccia breads baked daily from scratch. As the Spicy Pickle t-shirts say, "Go for it. Our kitchen is your culinary playground."

Thin Crust Delights

Spicy Pickle's menu also features pizzetti (pizz-ET-ee), an 11-inch Neapolitan thin crust pizza available in seven varieties. Try the Athena-a mix of artichoke hearts, tomatoes, feta, mozzarella and basil pesto-or the Sicilian, combining hard salami, roasted red peppers, smoked mozzarella, chili flakes and tomato sauce. Lovers of Southwestern cuisine will love the Aztec, a spicy mix of roasted chicken, red onions, green peppers and mozzarella and chipotle pesto. A build-your-own option, plus traditional cheese and pepperoni, round out the selections.

Add in six scrumptious original salads with dressings made fresh each day, as well as the world's best spicy pickle marinated in a proprietary chili blend, and you've got a singularly satisfying fast dining experience, enjoyable with friends and family or as a quick lunch or dinner on the go.

Catering Menu Available

Spicy Pickle's new Wash Park location is open seven days a week. Hours are MON-SAT 11AM to 8PM Monday through Saturday, and 11AM-6PM Sunday. All major credit cards are accepted, and a complete catering menu is also available. Call the restaurant at (303) 777-5696 or go to for more information.
