Kaiser is an unincorporated community in Miller County in the U.S. state of Missouri.[1][2] It is named after a family of last name Kaiser. It is located on a county road just south of Route 42/134. The zip code is 65047.

With America's entry into World War I and the anti-German hysteria that followed, some residents proposed changing the name of the community to Success. However after some debate the plan failed.[3]
