Earlier last month, Denver welcomed a newcomer to the city's fast casual empire, Pierogies Factory, the city's first and only fast casual restaurant that focuses on the Polish favorite pierogies. For those not familiar with the dish, pierogies have often been equated to a Polish dumpling or empanada as they can be stuffed with an assortment of fillings.

Having found instant success with his Polish food truck, also named Pierogies Factory, Grosfeld opened the first pierogi-centric fast casual in the city, serving a number of Polish specialty dishes but with a special focus on its namesake.
