Laura Warren and Butch Lontine have a long history with operating and managing dining establishments. So when the opportunity arose for the couple to secure a location in west Glenwood, they were eager to bring a new sports bar to the area.

“The community really needed a place for locals and tourists alike to kick back, relax and watch their favorite sporting events with an affordable, quality meal.”
Laura Warren

The concept for Big Daddy’s Sports Bar was born. Like many small business owners, they needed a little support and guidance in getting their business up and running. This is where the Northwest Colorado SBDC and Roaring Fork Business Resource Center came into play.

Laura heard about the services offered and began meeting on a regular basis with the Northwest Colorado SBDC. Together they worked through a business plan and cash flow projections that Laura could share with area lenders to secure additional funding. The Center introduced Laura to a number of lenders, and she was successful in obtaining the financing she needed.

“We’re very grateful for the support from the SBDC and Business Resource Center,” said Laura. ”We couldn’t have opened in time for summer without their help!” Featuring 20 HD TVs, including a 92-inch big screen, Big Daddy’s is now open for business.
