400+ Black Owned Businesses to Support in and Around Denver

As the protests against police brutality continue on, it’s more important than ever to look at ways Denver can support its black community. We’ve compiled a list of every black-owned business we could find in and around Denver, but this is in no way definitive.

  1. Platinum Bridal for wedding dresses! Had a wonderful experience with them. Technically in Thornton but worth the few extra miles 🙂

      1. Dave Smith Realty, Public Realty and City Park Realty all three are Black owned and should be listed considering the systemic racism as it related to blacks owning homes.

        1. Totally agree! I added Public Realty because I found their site (I actually walk by their location all the time!) but it seems City Park is closed and David Smith I am not sure is still active. Let me know if you have more resources.

          1. Dave Smith has never closed since Dave Smith built the office in the 1950s once the High Street Redlining ended. It is still run by the same family and open Monday-Saturday

          2. Good to know! Do you have a website or some sort of page I can link to? That’s needed for this list but I’ll happily add them once I have it! I just can’t seem to find anything online.

          3. Yes, Dave Smith Realty is still very active, since the 1950’s. I’m Dave Smith’s grand daughter. My mother owns the company.

        1. Do you know if they are still open? Their website has expired and they haven’t posted to their Instagram since January

      2. Kim Harrell Silver Smith and Jewelry Design for Fashion and Retail
        khsilversmith. com

      3. I’m so in love with all of the additional businesses highlighted and the positive, supportive comments! Be the solution, Denver.

      4. Infamous Physique is a black owed private by appointment personal training gym located in Littleton. Although the gym is a new venture that I opened just before the Stay at home order went into effect, I’ve been helping people achieve there health & fitness goals for over 5 years. Whether you are a seasoned athlete looking for something new or an exercise novice intimidated by the gym, Infamous Physique is here for you offering personal training for all fitness levels.

      5. Hi,
        Please add World of Wellness Home Care to your list of black-owned businesses in Denver. 


        Thank you.

      6. Hi Brittany, Any way to get this list sorted by city? I live in North East Westminster/Broomfield area, and would like to support Black Owned Businesses, but can’t easily get down to Denver or south metro area. Thanks! David

        1. Hello David,

          I appreciate you wanting to support Black Owned Business. Happy Roots Beauty Supply is a black owned business located in Westminster that you can support.

      7. What’s not listed as a category is insurance and finance. HealthNetCO Insurance Agency would fall in this category.

      8. Please add a list of Black birth workers, midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants

    1. Also Zeni Beauty Supply Store in Denver! Black owned! 7521 E Iliff Ave Denver CO 80231

  2. Yellow Door Collective makes home goods, jewelry, face masks, etc! Lots of repurposed items as well. Yellowdoorcollective.shop

      1. Sorry I may have missed something. Why are you listing black owned businesses? Is this so they would be exempted from looting? If so why would you call these out? Why not STOP LOOTING ALL BUSINESSES!! Help me understand the purpose of your article??!!

        1. It has nothing to do with looting. A lot of readers want to use their money to support the Denver black community by supporting its small businesses. We’re trying to give them a resource to do so.

          1. Do you do the same for white owned business, or Asian, or Hispanic? Or just black?

        2. I would not expect an honest answer to your question, for as to do so would require an observance of the blatant racist nature of this ‘article’. Your instincts are spot-on. This is a prime example of racial pandering and virtue-signaling; to not agree with anyone promoting pro-black causes is obviously racist on your part. Sad …

          1. Supporting a suppressed minority group in times of immense turmoil is not racist. Ignoring and denying that the suppression even exists and calling out anyone who supports them because of these issues though is …. problematic to say the least.

        3. Fitness: Naturally Defined Fitness, Nutrition & Wellness Services, SE Denver;

        4. Does it offend you that someone is shining a positive light on & showing support for the Black Community & all the things they have to contribute to the great State of Colorado. Do you feel threatened that the white community is in jeopardy of losing them & their financial support? Hmmm? Inquiring minds want to know

          1. We’re looking for some services as well as buy a new home. I see a carpet cleaning business on this list, but can’t find the black owner among the franchises. Is there a specific location that is black-owned?

      2. I have owned and operated An Essential Basket for 20 plus years. I feature the best of Colorado in every design. Locally made chocolates to aromatherapy. As a native showcase local artists is the cornerstone to my business.

      1. Thanks! But as an organization, we focus on local and independent businesses as much as possible.

  3. Sweet Sweetz in Whittier is a newer ice cream and sweets shop and FABULOUS!!!

    1. Well, hey, Nancy! I searched for this one because it’s truly one of my favourite places to go. I love the atmosphere. I love that she asks me how my meal is. I love going there on Sundays. I lived in the South and it truly feels like such a wonderful experience every time I go. The atmosphere, the love, the comfort I feel there is unparalleled.

    1. If this was a listing of white owned businesses it would be deemed white supremist. Why is free advertising for b.o.b. ok?

      1. Seriously??! You’re really asking that in today’s climate where Black people are labeled as the “minority” and only represents 3.4% of Denver’s population??? GTFOH

      2. Its because they are suppressed, having to work harder to achieve the same recognition as they non-black counterparts. Being black includes struggles that other races don’t go through and because of that they receive this kind of support – they have gone through so many obstacles because of the way people have viewed them for being black – people’s prejudices. Even though some people may think but black-owned businesses and white-owned business are the same and view them as such, there are a lot of people who think differently and react differently when they find out a business is black owned. Its like this with poc even – especially those that from close-minded communities (saying this as I’ve seen and heard very degrading things myself as a South-Asian about black people from my own people). Some media dislike advertising these kinds of businesses and I can’t tell you why cause I’m not them. Especially at a time where black people are protesting for change, its important for those with platforms to support. I know this maybe hard to understand at first but think of it like this: if you’re dealing an amputated limp aftermath and someone comes around complaining about their knee scratch, how would it feel? It would be tone deaf to make a list of white owned businesses and there wouldn’t be a reason for one. I’m not saying white people haven’t had their struggles, I’m saying being white isn’t one of them. I hope you can understand what I’m trying to say and I apologize in advance if there’s any mistakes in this.

      3. It is here because racial pandering and virtue signaling are the new ‘ins’. Get with the program or be considered a racist.

        1. Steph, Steph, Steph. You could have just gone about your day, but instead you had to come tell everybody (multiple times) that you think supporting black-owned businesses is “racial pandering”. May I suggest that you take some time to reflect on why you are so vehemently opposed to this list? I assume it is because you don’t like the protests against the police murdering innocent black men & women, but I will leave the self-reflection and discovery up to you. You certainly aren’t affected by 303 putting this list together, so there was no reason for you to leave this comment. And yet you did…you might want to be a bit more mindful of the hatred you put out in this world.

          I hope that during your self-reflection, you think back to moments in your life where someone else’s kindness and understanding helped you when you needed it most. Life is hard enough, but we can help each other by listening and practicing empathy.

        2. Why engage in the comments or read the list? Just don’t spend your money within the black owned businesses and continue to patron white businesses. Easy. Simple AND you continue to support the community you want! it’s a WIN, WIN – for you and yours. 🙂

      4. Are you really seeking to understand, or are you being argumentative? If that latter, just don’t patron the businesses and spend your money elsewhere. Easy, simple. WIN WIN – for you and yours! 🙂

      5. This is a list of white owned companies: COLORADO FORTUNE 500. Top 10 are: The top 10 companies in the U.S. on the list are:

        Exxon Mobil
        Berkshire Hathaway
        UnitedHealth Group
        CVS Health

        How is this article promoting the belief that one race is superior to another? How is providing information about the businesses of historically marginalized people racist? I’d love to learn more from you? Based on the definition below, I don’t understand. I’d love to learn more about your point of view!

        RACIST: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
        “the comments have led to her being called a racist”

        showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or believing that a particular race is superior to another.
        “we are investigating complaints about racist abuse at the club”

  21. This story is kinda racist. Imagine if it was titled “100+ White Owned Businesses to Support in Denver”
    Supporting a business based on the race of the owner is racist.

    1. Hi Bob – black entrepreneurs have faced a myriad of racial barriers when starting businesses in the US, none of which apply to the white population. If 303 put together a list of “white owned businesses” to your callout, the list would be much, much longer and would shine quite a light on these barriers.

    2. If supporting entrepreneurs of one race, while neglecting those of another, is racist, then the status quo has us doing that already by default. Most of us support white-owned businesses all the time without needing to be told to, because they’re everywhere, and we don’t even think about it. And the more people shop somewhere, the more people start to figure they should too. It takes awareness and intention to climb out of that rut, hence projects like this.

    3. It certainly feels like you posted this to be inflammatory and intentionally tone deaf. While I doubt you’ll read this in that light, hopefully it will be helpful for other readers. During COVID-19 alone, consider this from the WP: “minority-owned businesses have suffered disproportionately in a crisis that’s also killing nonwhite Americans at higher rates and eliminating more of their jobs”. We need black businesses and voices in a system that has purposely kept the barriers higher for them. I am happy to support black businesses and look forward to watching this list grow.

  53. Please add me to the list of black owned businesses: Evans Counseling Group, 2 locations in Denver, Cherry Creek and Denver Highlands.

  54. Dream Is Grind Productions owned by Justin Johnson. Denver based company specializing in talent management, event planning, concert production and consulting. Creators of the Kush Groove Concert Series.

  55. How unfortunate that Gypsy House Cafe is listed here. Gypsy is a pejorative to Romani people! Same context as the N-word for blacks. If anything their cafe should be boycotted until that changes, not be listed as black owned especially at a time like this. Not only are you sending the wrong message by listing them here, but in doing so you’re also justifying the use of that word as well. That’s a big problem, and it’s incredibly offensive to an entire race of people. Ignorance is bliss I guess, isn’t it…?

  56. Please add Rising Sun Distillery to your list. It is a Black and Woman owned distillery located near Mile High Stadium. Sol Richardson is the only Black owner of a Distillery in the city of Denver, his grandfather was a well know entrepreneur in the city and owned a bar in Five Points that now houses Rosenberg Bagels. He is proud to continue the legacy of Black owned businesses in the Mile High City.

    1. Do you have a site I can link to or some listing? I can’t find one anywhere online.

      1. Hi Brittney,
        I mentioned a black business above Denver Weekly News and got no reply. Can you please add it.

  57. I would like my business to be included. I am an African-American male. I own Earth Cycle Cleaning (earthcyclecleaning.com). It is 100% minority owned and we focus on commercial cleaning (Airbnb and Offices) in metro-Denver.

  58. Bloom & Noosh is a new black owned floral design, that delivers fresh bouquets weekly! No brick and mortar currently, but e-commerce!

    1. Do you have any contact information for them? I can’t find any on their website.

  59. This is an awesome list and I would like to help make it more accessible to your readers. I have GIS experience and I was wondering if I was to take all the businesses listed and generate some spatial data files, would there be a way for 303mag to include an interactive map people could use to see which are in their close vicinity? I just feel like these small business will get more ‘business’ if people know they are near them – as opposed to asking readers to look one up and driving out of their way to participate. If there is an interactive map that illustrates where each business is, users will be more likely to visit (especially given covid, curfew, apathy, etc…)

    1. I really appreciate the offer! But we’ve decided to hold it for now after we heard some concerns (not from businesses but from general readers) the list could be used for negative purposes so I am not sure if I want to create a map just yet. The way we have it set up is that it lists the neighborhoods – so people know the general area (if there’s no neighborhood it’s online) and then links to a website so the business controls how much info is shared in terms of contact. We think that’s the safest way for now, just in case (although we’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from businesses thus far).

  60. Hello! Could anyone point me in the direction of Black owned businesses in Boulder, Colorado? I’m having a hard time finding some online.

  61. This list is awesome thank you so much for posting it! I’d like to 2nd what folks are saying that a list that includes BOB in the surrounding communities would be awesome- Lakewood/Golden/Wheat Ridge/Arvada/Littleton as well as Aurora! Thank you thank you!

  64. Hey this article is awesome!! I did notice that there was not many black-owned Education companies on this list.

  66. Thanks for this! How did you put together this list? Trying to do the same for Boulder but aside from going through the minorities business database one by one I can’t think of an easier way to parse this down. Thanks for any guidance.

But that only got me to 70. Once I got it live, people reached out to me! So start where you can and build from there. Good luck!

    2. I live in Boulder and this is sorely needed – if you want a partner Molly, please respond, I’d love to help!

    1. They do have their neighborhoods and the city if it’s outside of Denver! If there’s no neighborhood it’s online or not brick and mortar. Also, we’ve made a couple of comments about addresses/maps because we don’t want this list to be used for negative purposes so that is why we only link to a site that the business controls.

  166. I am a Black Business Owner in the Denver Area on a crusade to help businesses locally and nationally survive and thrive by helping them uncover hidden profits in their business that can create a recurring business stimulus (Month after Month-Year after Year) at NO COST & NO EXTRA WORK.
    DID YOU KNOW as a business owner you can increase your profits by hundreds to thousands of dollars a month at no cost or additional work with a very simple solution without increasing your sales?
    Example: We have a business owner processing $30,000 a month on average and paying out $900 a month in fees. My solution would provide $860 in savings being returned to their profit margin, which in one year they would increase their profits $10,320 (If their profit margin was 10% they would have to increase their sales volume by $103,200 to earn that same $10,320).
    If you would like to schedule 20 minutes for me to learn more about your business and I can show you how I can uncover hidden profits that you can put directly in your pocket instead of banks or processors, please contact me DenverAMS.Rod@gmail.com

  167. As a fellow black business owner in Denver and a Colorado native I would like to give praise to Brittany Werges for all the hard work put into not only the initial publication but upkeep of this article. Creating a resource of this magnitude to assist in the support of not only the black community as a whole but to the movement currently in progress is something worthy of not only praise but should be awarded in my opinion. 303 Magazine has been a staple in Colorado for as long as I can remember reaching far beyond Denver. To use her platform for such a noble cause is beyond prestigious. The positive impact this article alone has had on the black community will last a very long time. Though I do not wish to have my Denver based business listed I am still very appreciative and offer my most sincere thanks. ?? We need more people like Brittany Werges.

    1. Thanks really nice of you to say, Eric!
      I’m really glad you find this useful and impactful and hope we can continue to support the community in many other ways.

  170. Hello Brittany!! Thank you for constantly updating this page. I submitted a Black pressure washing business, Integrity Mobile Wash, however it is only listed as Mobile Wash. Can you please update? I would appreciate it so much!

  171. This is great! Anyway to make these linked to an interactive map? So it would be searchable close to certain areas? Bookmarking for reference, nonetheless.

    1. Hi! We’ve made the conscious decision to not do a map so that it’s not easy for people to use this list for nefarious reasons. Also, we only link to sites the business controls so they can edit or remove any info they don’t want to be shown in case there are any issues. We typically do maps for other articles but we want to play it safe.

  172. Wow! It’s so sad that we have to be concerned about people using a map with this info for nefarious purposes. I guess I shouldn’t be so naive with the heightened emotions as of late. I appreciate the response and I hope one day that we won’t have to be concerned about those that may wish to do harm to POC. Thank you for this list! I will work on finding businesses near my place of work and home so I can do my part to support! Take care and get in good trouble!
