Via 313 to Bring the Soul (and Pizza) of Detroit to Colorado

Popular Detroit-style pizza brand to offer specials ahead of grand opening celebration

Via 313 to Bring the Soul (and Pizza) of Detroit to ColoradoColorado residents no longer have to drive the 1,268 miles to Michigan to enjoy genuine Detroit-style pizza, thanks to the state’s first Via 313 restaurant opening in Park Meadows this May.

This history-making store will settle into its new home at 9595 E. County Line Road, Suite C, next to Total Wine and More in the Centennial Promenade shopping center. Just off I-25 and across from Park Meadows Mall, the restaurant will serve up its famously fresh, rectangle-shaped pizza with only the finest ingredients.

A soft opening will take place from Monday, May 13 through Thursday, May 16, and pizza fans can celebrate with a special offer each day:

  • Monday – Free Cheese Bread with pizza purchase
  • Tuesday – Free Cinnamon Sticks with pizza purchase
  • Wednesday – BOGO Cheese or Detroiter Detroit-style
  • Thursday – All-Day Happy Hour

“Our goal is to bring the best of Detroit to cities across the country,” said Brandon Hunt, who co-founded Via 313 with his brother Zane Hunt. “From the small trailer where we started in Austin, Texas, to our first location in Colorado, it’s always about our signature pizzas with crispy, cheesy edges. We can’t wait to start serving guests in the Denver region!”

On Friday, May 17, Via 313 will hold a grand opening celebration, donating a portion of its proceeds to charity beneficiary Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, which strives to end homelessness in Colorado and offers help with housing, healthcare, childcare, employment and more.

The new Denver restaurant will mark the brand’s 18th location systemwide. Hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Before Detroit-style pizza became a hit outside of the Motor City, trailblazers Brandon and Zane Hunt decided to bring their hometown pizza to Austin, Texas. Since 2011, they’ve built an Austin icon that locals and tourists flock to for genuine Detroit-style pizza. Via 313 currently operates 16 full-service restaurants and two permanently placed trailers throughout Texas and Utah, with several more locations in the pipeline. Via 313 was dubbed “one of the very best pizzas” by Food and Wine Magazine, named “Independent Pizzeria of the Year” by Pizza Today and recognized as one of the “Top 10 Pizzas in America” by Food Network.
