In-N-Out Burger, the popular and cult favorite California fast-food chain that is expanding to Colorado, has announced plans for its ninth restaurant in the state.

BusinessDen reports a development proposal was submitted to the city of Thornton for the restaurant to be built along 136th Avenue between Grant and Lincoln streets.

“It is still very early in the development entitlement process,” Carl Arena, In-N-Out’s vice president of real estate and development, said in a statement to BusinessDen.

“Once we begin construction on a new location, it usually takes us five to six months to build a restaurant and open for business. There is still quite a bit of work to be done before we can even set a time to begin construction.”

In-N-Out is building a distribution center in Colorado Springs. It previously said it expects to open three restaurants by the end of the year, in Aurora, Lone Tree and Colorado Springs.

The Thornton location near an outlet mall would be the ninth planned In-N-Out location from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins.

The other planned locations are:

  • Aurora: 14150 E. Alameda Ave., at Town Center at Aurora
  • Castle Rock: The west parking lot of The Outlets at Castle Rock
  • Colorado Springs: The southeast corner of InterQuest and Voyager parkways
  • Colorado Springs: The site of a former Outback Steakhouse northeast of Powers Boulevard and Constitution Avenue
  • Denver: Southwest corner of Central Park Boulevard and 46th Avenue
  • Fort Collins: 1700 S. College Ave.
  • Lakewood: 150 S. Wadsworth Blvd., just north of Alameda Avenue
  • Lone Tree: 9171 Westview Road, near Park Meadows mall
