‘Finding a niche, keeping overhead low keys to success’ and ‘Long-term business relationships can be invaluable asset’ Randy Case, whose family has developed property for years throughout Colorado Springs and whose father at one time operated a huge commercial brokerage said his personal involvement in one deal stemmed from simply enjoying the food at TGI Friday’s. “We went after TGIF’s because I liked them in Arizona,” said Case. “I convinced their ownership they’d be a good fit.” T.G.I. Friday’s opened their first and only Springs restaurant on Case’s 5 acre site northwest of Interstate 25 and Woodmen. The area is home to several hotels and other restaurants.
