Pizza Ranch, headquartered in Orange City, Iowa, will open a location in Conway this summer. Construction is underway at 950 Covington Way, across Dave Ward Drive from DeBoard Electronics and C2 Powersports. This will be the company's first location in Arkansas.
The restaurant features three crust sizes and thicknesses, three sauce choices and more than 20 toppings.
A variety of specialty pizzas — the Prairie, Bronco, Stampede, Roundup, Trailblazer and more — will be available or guests can create their own.
In 1987, Pizza Ranch added “the country’s best chicken” to the menu.
Crispy ranch chicken will be available in different-sized dinners or ranch packs. Ranch packs are also available for pizza or a combination of both chicken and pizza.
Pizza Ranch will offer Buffet Your Way, which allows buffet guests to request their favorite pizza and have the first slice delivered to their table. The buffet includes pizza, crispy chicken, fresh salads and sides along with dessert pizzas.
There are a variety of fruit dessert pizzas as well as cactus bread, which is a cinnamon streusel pizza with icing.
Founded by Adrie Groeneweg in Hull, Iowa, in 1981, Pizza Ranch is a faith-based business that is involved in several service projects including The 12 Days of Pizza, a program to feed students in need over Christmas break.
The company also has a weekday devotional posted on its website that is written by a rotating group of Pizza Ranch Restaurant Support Center staff members.
Pizza Ranch partners with the Tesfa Foundation to supply internationally-sourced restaurant coffee, and support literacy and education for Ethiopian children.
It also partners with the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, Bible League International, Campus Crusade for Christ, Habitat for Humanity and other regional nonprofits. It now has 200 locations in 13 states, mostly across the midwest.
