Jet's Pizza brings Detroit-style pizza to Denver

Denver has Chicago-style pizza, New York-style pizza, even St. Louis-style pie. And now the city can try pizza Detroit-style, thanks to the expanding pizza chain Jet's Pizza.

Jet's Pizza, which was founded in 1975 in Sterling Heights, Michigan, serves a traditional Detroit-style pizza. That means it's a square, deep-dish pie. While this style of pizza is common in Michigan and other parts of the Midwest and even the East Coast (partially thanks to Jet's Pizza, which has been opening outposts there), so far it's been unavailable in the Mile High City. Until now.

Telluride's Brown Dog Pizza, which specializes in a Detroit-style pie, had tried to open a spot on Old South Gaylord Street, but was chased away by neighbors. But Jet's Pizza found a much warmer welcome in Littleton, where it opened last week. "Our family has vacationed in Colorado for the past seven years and fell in love with this area," says John Jetts, co-founder of the chain and vice president of marketing. "We are excited to introduce our pizza to this great state."

In fact, Jetts says the company plans to open two additional Colorado stores in the near future. In the meantime, the Jet's in Littleton is open daily for take-out and delivery. Get more information and view the menu of pizza, subs and more here.
