"Denver's economy is based partially on its geographic position and its connection to some of the major transportation systems of the country. Because Denver is the largest city within 500 miles (800 km), it has become a natural location for storage and distribution of goods and services to the Mountain States. Denver is also approximately halfway between the large cities of the Midwest like Chicago and St. Louis and the cities of the West Coast, another benefit for distribution.

Geography also allows Denver to have a considerable government presence, with many federal agencies based or having offices in the Denver area.

Qwest Communications, Dish Network Corporation, Starz-Encore, DIRECTV, and Comcast are just a few of the many telecommunications companies with operations in the Denver area...

Additionally, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Noodles & Company, and Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard originated in Denver, but all have since moved their headquarters to the nearby suburbs of Wheat Ridge, Broomfield, and Golden."
