I opened my business in April of 2014 here in Wheat Ridge Colorado!
Many people ask me, why Wheat Ridge? Easy…have you seen it? It’s an up an coming town that borders with the Highlands, is an EASY direct drive into downtown Denver, and it is an EASY and direct drive into downtown Golden. Yet, it has a small town feel. The people are friendly the streets are clean and it’s growing and growing into a very desirable town.
Here’s a little history on Wheat Ridge:
“Although Wheat Ridge is a relatively young incorporated city, it has a rich history based on agriculture and the community’s location along regional travel routes. It grew from a popular rest stop for travelers during the Gold Rush of the late 1850s to a thriving agricultural and suburban community known as the “Carnation City” in the mid 1900s. As the residential areas of unincorporated Jefferson County grew to provide housing to the Denver workforce during the 1950s, the major transportation corridors extending from Denver developed with commercial services. During that era, the formation of numerous utility and fire protection districts provided these unincorporated areas with urban services.”
I don’t think I could have picked a more ideal spot for C.C. Rider Rental than Wheat Ridge. The section of town I am in is called “The Ridge @38”. It is filled with things like an Art Studio (Teller St. Gallery), Florists (Posie Girl Flowers), Antiques and Jewlery (Peter Damian), great cycling (Wheat Ridge Cycle)…if you have stumbled upon us yet…What are you waiting for?!
