There are about to be a cou­ple more spots at which to grab Mex­i­can food with Al­ti­tude. Ha­cienda Colorado is mov­ing into the for­mer Katie Mullen’s spot on the 16th Street Mall, and the lo­cal Mex­i­can chain has an­other restau­rant in de­vel­op­ment along In­ter­state 70 in Golden.

“We’ve been look­ing at lo­ca­tions close to down­town for a long time. That one (the for­mer Katie Mullen’s) just came up, we looked at it, and it turned out to be a fit,” said Gene Van Horne, di­rec­tor of spe­cial projects for Ha­cienda Colorado.

The Katie Mullen’s site in the Sher­a­ton Den­ver Down­town Ho­tel will be Ha­cienda’s sixth restau­rant and its first down­town. It’s ex­pected to open in spring 2018.

Wells Fargo in trou­ble again.

Scan­dal-plagued Wells Fargo is back in hot wa­ter for sign­ing cus­tomers up for prod­ucts that they didn’t need or want. This time it’s auto in­sur­ance, and the bank says it may have cost about 20,000 peo­ple their cars.

San Fran­cisco-based Wells Fargo ac­knowl­edged late Thurs­day that it en­rolled roughly 570,000 auto loan bor­row­ers for what’s known as col­lat­eral pro­duc­tion in­sur­ance on their ve­hi­cles when the cus­tomers al­ready had ap­pro­pri­ate in­sur­ance. It will pay $80 mil­lion in re­funds and ac­count ad­just­ments to those peo­ple.
