Pizza Ranch Plans to Blaze a Trail in Burlington

Celebrated Community Hub Offers Unique Buffet Your Way Experience

BURLINGTON, Iowa (Dec. 7, 2016) – Saddle up, Burlington: Pizza Ranch is coming your way.

The legendary pizza, chicken (renowned for being The Country’s Best Chicken®), salad and dessert buffet beloved across the Midwest and Great Plains announced today it has signed an agreement with local entrepreneur, John Mohr, to open the first Pizza Ranch in Burlington. It will be the brand’s 78th location in the state.

“Burlington is the perfect community for Pizza Ranch, and we are so excited to become part of the tight-knit community here,” said Mohr, who has been a part of the Pizza Ranch family since 1996 as the owner of the Mt. Pleasant, Sigourney and Washington, Iowa Pizza Ranch restaurants. Mohr is planning for a Spring 2017 opening.

Based in Orange City, Iowa, Pizza Ranch restaurants have earned adoration in their communities for hot and delicious pizzas, golden crispy broasted chicken and fresh healthy salads, all in a fun, authentic, ranch-themed environment.

Beyond the delicious meals it serves, Pizza Ranch in Burlington, and in every town, goes above and beyond to serve its communities. The restaurant partners with local schools, churches, non-profits and other organizations to host fundraisers and social functions. Restaurants also offer Community Impact Nights, during which members of a participating organization help serve Pizza Ranch guests, while earning donations and a portion of sales from that night. Pizza Ranch prides itself on its commitment to support the communities it calls home, providing these genuine opportunities to raise awareness and much needed funding for local groups and programs that represent and serve their hometowns. True to the brand’s vision, Pizza Ranch locations aim to glorify God by positively impacting the world.

“We’ll be bringing all of the Pizza Ranch features that fans of the brand have grown to love,” added Mohr. “We’ll have community gathering rooms, a drive-thru and of course, the legendary buffet.”

The new Pizza Ranch arrives amid a dynamic growth phase for the brand. In addition to this new location, Pizza Ranch has several additional openings planned for 2017, including Sterling, Illinois. Pizza Ranch’s consistent dedication to evolving its iconic buffet with trending recipes and ingredients, while sustaining favorites such as the Tuscan Roma, Roundup™ and Buffalo Chicken, 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 Burlington 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.
