Jeff, Jeryn Richard and Paul are high school sweethearts who met at Cherry Creek High once upon a time. Since then, Chef Jeff has trained at the Culinary Institute of America and worked with Emeril Lagasse at the Commanders Palace in New Orleans. They returned to Colorado, and became the owners of The Old Stone Church Restaurant in 1991, located in Castle Rock. The Richards credit their two sons with the idea to offer outrageous and delicious burgers to the Castle Rock community, which is where they and Jeff’s brother, Paul, opened the original Crave location in 2010.
They took their 100% Colorado Proud beef burgers to the Denver Burger Battle five years in a row, and have won several awards in both the People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice categories at the renowned competition.
Today, Crave Real Burgers is a Colorado restaurant success story because of all the fantastic customers that visit regularly and tell their friends and families about their great experiences! Come into a Crave today to see what makes us awesome!
