ORANGE CITY, Iowa (March 6, 2018) - Pizza Ranch, the legendary pizza, chicken, salad and dessert buffet revered for its community outreach initiatives, announced today that the brand has plans to open a restaurant in its 14th State.

The opening of the new restaurant, which is in Conway, Arkansas, marks a milestone moment for the franchise, as the company continues working to bring its renowned community hubs and craveable food to all corners of the country.

“We are all very excited to be opening our first franchise in the great state of Arkansas,” Co-founder and President of Pizza Ranch Adrie Groeneweg said. “We feel blessed to have such great franchisees, Patrick and Jennifer Melton, who are ready to share the Legendary Pizza Ranch experience, along with great southern hospitality.”

Pizza Ranch’s consistent dedication to evolving its iconic buffet with trending recipes and ingredients, while offering favorites such as the Tuscan Roma, Prairie and Roundup, has won over a loyal and growing base of guests that clamor for the brand in their communities.

The Pizza Ranch experience doesn’t end in the restaurant.

Pizza Ranch provides its loyal fans with opportunities to enjoy all buffet items, specialized group meals and more outside the ranch through delivery, pick-up and catering options; as well as providing opportunities to raise awareness and much needed funding for community groups and programs that represent and serve their hometowns.

“The proven systems and processes that we have in place are collectively moving our entire company forward,” Groeneweg said. “Our franchisees are motivated by the impact they are having in their communities, which parallels our company’s mission and values.”

Pizza Ranch is committed to growing the company’s presence, recently opening restaurants in Helena, Montana; Hutchinson, Minnesota; Plover, Wisconsin; and Sterling, Illinois.

With five locations currently under construction in Arkansas, Minnesota and Wisconsin, the restaurant chain plans to open an additional six restaurants in 2018, bringing the chain’s total to 215 locations across the Midwest.

As Pizza Ranch continues to expand, the brand is awarding franchise opportunities to qualified individuals and partnership groups who share the company’s vision, who will follow the proven business model and who are driven to succeed.

Tailored to owners and operators that place value in strong community relationships, the franchise model provides structure and scalability.

Many of the current franchisees began as loyal customers who wanted to be a part of the future of Pizza Ranch and believe in its vision and mission.
