Tokyo Joe’s opens in Parker
Denver-based Tokyo Joe’s has opened a new location in Parker, marking the Asian fast-casual restaurant chain’s 36th location in the state.
Tokyo Joe’s is at 19240 E. Lincoln Ave., near the intersection of Parker Road and Lincoln Avenue. All proceeds from the restaurant’s March 26 preview celebration were donated to the Douglas County Fallen Officers Fund.
“Our guests have been asking us to open a Tokyo Joe’s in Parker for a very long time,” Mark Davis, CEO of Tokyo Joe’s, said in a news release. “We are thrilled to have found a location that will allow us to serve healthy, clean Asian food to the local community.”
The Parker expansion is part of the brand’s overall development plans for this year and marks the third Tokyo Joe’s to open in 2018, joining restaurants in Arvada and Surprise, Arizona, which celebrated record-breaking opening weeks.
Additional Tokyo Joe’s are scheduled to open this year in Wheat Ridge and Colorado Springs.
