BOULDER — Boulder Beer on Walnut is changing its concept to Squared Pizza + Beer.
The Pearl Street mainstay will now be a Detroit-style restaurant, reports the Boulder Daily Camera.
While owning a building seems like something every successful business should do, that’s not always the case. For many companies, it makes more sense to continue leasing space, freeing up time and capital that can be better utilized in other ways.
The location is changing its name and menu, but it won’t be changing ownership. The founder of the original Old Chicago, Frank Day, remains the owner of Boulder Beer Co. and is staying on with the restaurant.
Squared Pizza + Beer is slated to open on Sept. 10. Boulder Beer’s main location at 2880 Wilderness Place will not be affected by the changes.
Detroit-style pizza is known for being baked in a square pan and served with square slices. It has a thick crust but is not as chewy as Chicago pizza.
