Pizza Ranch Plans New Kentwood Restaurant

The Beloved Family Hangout to Bring its Signature Pizzas, Fried Chicken and Community Outreach Programs to Kentwood

KENTWOOD, Mich. (Oct. 23, 2014) – Pizza Ranch, the legendary pizza, fried chicken and salad buffet beloved across the Midwest and Central Plains, announced today plans to open in Kentwood, Michigan. It will be the brand’s third location in the state. The restaurant will be located at 3858 28th St. SE in Kentwood, and a team of local entrepreneurs is at the helm of this development.

Pizza Ranch restaurants have earned a much-adored reputation in their communities for hot and delicious pizzas, golden crispy fried chicken and fresh healthy salads, all in a fun, authentic, ranch-themed environment. Pizza Ranch also offers delivery, carryout and group meals of its entire mouthwatering menu.

“My wife grew up in Michigan and graduated from Grand Valley State University. A very close family friend is the owner of Sioux Falls South Dakota Pizza Ranch, and impressed us with his restaurant’s focus on community outreach. As we considered how to contribute to the warm community around Kentwood and Grand rapids, introducing a fun new business and some great food to the area was a no brainer,” said Jay Bell, owner of the Kentwood Pizza Ranch. “The Pizza Ranch concept is a legendary experience in communities across the Midwest, and we’re thrilled to bring one to our wonderful family, friends and neighbors around Kentwood.”

Slated to open this winter, the Kentwood Pizza Ranch arrives amid a dynamic growth phase for the brand. In addition to this new location, Pizza Ranch has additional openings planned for 2015. Pizza Ranch’s consistent dedication to evolving its iconic buffet with trending recipes ingredients, while sustaining favorites such as The Country’s Best Chicken, has won over a loyal and growing base of guests that clamor for the brand in their communities.

“We are prepared to bring all the Pizza Ranch features fans of the brand have grown to love,” added Bell. “We’ll have community gathering rooms, the legendary buffet, plus carryout and delivery.”

Pizza Ranch in Kentwood, and in every town, showcases a commitment to serving its communities, and not just with its legendary buffet. The restaurant brand partners with schools, churches, non-profits and other organizations to host fundraisers and social functions. Restaurants also offer a Community Impact Night, during which members of a participating organization help serve Pizza Ranch guests while they earn tips and a portion of sales from that night. Pizza Ranch prides itself on providing these opportunities to raise awareness and much needed funding for community groups and programs that represent and serve their hometowns.

But the Pizza Ranch experience won’t end in the Kentwood restaurant. All buffet items will be available, along with specialized group meals that will be available to the community through carryout and delivery services.
