Industry Insider by Mile High Young Professionals
Launched in 2019, Industry Insider opens a window to a specific industry for outsiders through the featured guest’s personal stories and insights. Our guests include many accomplished Colorado entrepreneurs, idealists, and people behind a movement. During the event, the featured guest will share his/her personal stories through an interview, give an onsite tour, and answer the question “how does this industry work?”. If you are a curious person and ready to be inspired, come meet our guests and other like-minded young professionals! Due to a limited number of spots available and high demand, we ask that members commit to the event with $5. Non-members are able to attend for $20.
The registration includes one beer and one meal of your choice at the restaurant.
Pete opened a small burrito joint on the Hill in Boulder 26 years ago, after getting his English degree from CU Boulder. Lines were out the door every day. Since then, Pete has expanded his Mission-style burritos to 12 locations throughout Colorado and Arizona.
The Illegal Pete’s moto—“The More. The Merrier.”—celebrates individuality and connection. Walking into any Pete’s restaurant, you will find sticker-filled walls and fun employees serving you burritos and beers. The brand embraces arts and music and lives out this focus through things like the Starving Artists program, which feeds artists that come through town to perform shows. The business has felt the challenges brought about by the pandemic, but the lights are still on. Now Pete has a big plan.
Join us in hearing from Pete how he runs and grows his business and creates the eclectic culture that makes Illegal Pete’s not just a restaurant chain, but a neighborhood hub that keeps its local customers loyal. And to hear the big plan.
