There was even a special website dedicated to attracting the company: ColoradoLovesAmazon.com. The site features interviews from dozens of Coloradans including local musicians, business owners and Denver Broncos players.

“It’s just the atmosphere out here, everybody wants to win, everyone’s mind set is to be a winner here and that’s really the main reason I want to stay and win championships,” said Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr.
