Jack Buchanan is Here to Save El Rancho!

Jack Buchanan has owned the building and land for El Rancho for a few years now. He had the Bannano Group in to run the show for a bit. Unfortunately Denver concepts never fly in our little mountain town. While Bannano Group was trying to create a market in Evergreen that didn’t exist, the business was tanking.

Jack Buchanan and his family are as much of a fixture in Evergreen as El Rancho itself. With deep roots in Evergreen the Buchanan family has always been some of the biggest cheer leaders for Evergreen and El Rancho Restaurant.

El Rancho Has Long Road Ahead

We all know that one restaurant that just keeps having challenges and really trying hard on every owner but just can’t seem to make it. Well El Rancho has been that restaurant for about 15 years. Nothing has really worked. I was in the restaurant biz for decades in a previous life and I can tell you it takes way more than the desire to make money. It takes knowledge of what the people want combined with the inner workings of a restaurant. Those combinations seem to be a lost art these days and I hope El Rancho can find that perfect combination.
