How it started....

In 1976

Lenny and Linda Fresquez turned their dream into a reality by opening their first Arby’s restaurant and founding Fresquez Companies, we’ve added flavor to our community through our love of food, people and culture. 


Over 45+ years in business

We’ve served hundreds of thousands of people throughout the Rocky Mountain region of the United States and beyond. We are dedicated to supporting our community and their happiness, prosperity and well-being beyond our restaurants through service and charitable giving. Year after year, we continue to give back to important causes and reinvest in communities that are dear to our hearts including children’s education, economic and cultural development, homelessness and the arts.

The people we’ve employed, served and collaborated with for almost 4 decades have impacted our lives and businesses tenfold. Our team members are a huge reason why we are so successful and ever-evolving and growing. They’ve allowed us to become the company we are today —and we believe they are going to play the biggest role in our future and evolution. 

Fresquez Companies — a company that truly cares about the lives we serve and impact.

Our Values and How We Live Them

Collaboration: Collaboration is alive when two or more perspectives come together in partnership to create and achieve a desired outcome or goal. Contribution consists of bringing your unique ideas and expertise, listening actively and knowing what needs to be done or said to make or be the difference. While seemingly small or big, each effort and action we take contributes to a desired outcome or goal. 

Courage: Courage is the choice to rise up against challenge and adversity, while acknowledging the presence of fear. It’s stepping outside your comfort zone and making decisions with the greater good in mind.

Creativity: Creativity is the spark that ignites new, meaningful and innovative ideas, methods, and patterns while bringing in your intuition and resourcefulness. Creativity produces something that otherwise does not exist to impact your team, your community and the world in a positive way.

Trust: Trust is a two-way partnership that is built through clear communication, respect and consistency. It is the unwavering belief that choices, actions and decisions are for the advancement and growth for all. 

Limitless: Living in limitless possibility is being open and aware of the potential in all things —people, relationships, tasks, actions and goals. It is noticing challenges and obstacles and choosing to imagine, create and innovate ways to overcome them, grow and accomplish big goals and dreams. 

Passion: Passion inspires you and inspires others. It is contagious. Passion is a combination of great intention, ownership and joy. It is truly caring about what you’re doing and who you are serving in the moment. This is the recipe for great impact.
