Our Story

In December 2008, three born and raised Coloradans, Steve Shaw, Alan Laughlin and Jim Shaw, became the new owners of Black-eyed Pea Colorado. When they purchased the company they had a few things in mind; continue with their favorite Homestyle favorites and classics from Black-eyed Pea, integrate new and exciting menu items. In December 2016, Alan sold his interest in the Colorado Black-eyed Pea to 2 former Black-eyed Pea executives to help continue providing great home-style meals with the goal of growing this locally owned and operated Colorado Company.
