Co-Owner, Tocabe: An American Indian Eatery

Tocabe is the only American Indian owned and operated restaurant in Metro Denver. The restaurant first opened its doors in December 2008, adding a second location in 2015 and food truck in 2016.  

Ben and his business partner Matt Chandra work with many local and national Native organizations. Along with community outreach, Ben and Matt travel around to tribal communities learning about their traditional foods and what’s important to them on a cultural and community level.

Ben has lived in Denver since the age of three and grew up in the Park Hill neighborhood. He graduated from Denver East High School in 2001, then attended and graduated from the University of Denver in 2005 with a B.A. in History with a focus on American Indian studies.
