Bringing business and community together.
The Applewood Business Association (ABA) is a group of nearly 200 businesses in Applewood, Colorado. As an association, our charter is to help our member businesses grow, improve, and to enhance the lives of Applewood residents. We accomplish this within the Applewood community, via the work of the organization, through our business members, and in association with area chambers of commerce, local city partners, and other business groups.
Applewood is a unique, vibrant community located just west of Denver, Colorado. Straddling three small cities, it is more than just a neighborhood or suburb. Applewood is also a commercial hub for the estimated quarter-million people who live and work in central Jefferson County. Applewood’s western edge borders the steep cliffs and mesas of the Rocky Mountain foothills. Its eastern edge is just a few miles from downtown Denver.
Settled as farmland over 140 years ago, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, and Golden have become the literal “gateway to the Rockies.” Interstate-70, the primary highway to most central Colorado mountain destinations, curves through the area. This makes Applewood a convenient and logical last stop for tourists, skiers, campers and out-of-town travelers, who are drawn to Applewood for supplies needed for any stay in the mountains.
