Red Robin just keeps bobbing along

Back in 1996, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers moved its national headquarters to Greenwood Village. And while other chains are scaling back (or disappearing altogether), those based in Denver seem to be doing fairly well. There's Chipotle, of course, which is moving into London this year. And on Monday, Red Robin will open another restaurant in Illinois, this one in Orland Park.
