The Story Behind The Name

Who Is Walter Anyway?

Built on years of experience learning the pizza and restaurant businesses from the ground up, Walter’s303 was founded in the fall of 2010 and got its name after a simple misunderstanding. Founder Mike Kienast’s now-wife, Jen, suggested the name Walter’s for years until one fateful day Mike finally asked, “why?”:


Why do you keep suggesting we name this place Walter’s?


Um, because it’s your middle name...!


What...?! My middle name is Wayne, it’s nice to MEET you!

And with that, Walter’s303 Pizzeria and Publik House was born. Since then, Walter’s303 has grown to several locations across Colorado, bringing our Never Dull, Always Funky vibe to city folk and suburban settlers alike.
We’re serving up a full menu of Walter’s-style pizza, craft beers, and classic pizzeria favorites fit for families, cool cats, tap heads, or anyone who just loves a good slice of life. Come in, relax and stay awhile. Peace & Pizza! Walter
