“My wife was born and raised in Hawaii, so we’re very familiar with the brand,” Coty said in a conversation with What Now Denver. “I grew up in California and lived in Nevada. L&L has a large representation there, and there’s not enough of it in Colorado.”

The Hawaii-based eatery features over 200 restaurants across the U.S. and in Japan, but there is only three locations so far (in Aurora and Colorado Springs) in all of the Denver metropolitan area. L&L is expanding its Rocky footprint, however, with the Boulder addition and second Denver store coming soon.

“Boulder is a good fit for us and a good fit for the brand,” Coty said. “There are a lot of satellite campuses and businesses around to support this type of restaurant.”

L&L offers filling protein-carb-veggie combo bowls, meals, noodle soups, and the sushi-esque Spam musubi. In addition to the Hawaiian favorite canned meat, protein options include BBQ chicken and beef, burgers, pork, and shrimp.

Coty is aiming for an end of April opening in Boulder. The 1,100 square foot restaurant will contain about 20 seats in a small dining room and be “focused on grab and go,” similar to other L&L stores. Look for the Hawaiian eats in the second half of spring, just across the street from the Whole Foods market.
