Planet Sub, a sandwich chain out of the Midwest, has been heading west, and opened its first Colorado store in downtown Denver last month.
Located at 1617 California Street, this shop features the chain's signature homemade bread and Colorado brews on tap, as well as some Colorado-friendly touches in the space itself: beetle-kill pine,reclaimed corrugated siding, in-house recycling.
This won't be the only Planet Sub in Colorado; the chain plans to open seven stores here in the next eight years.
