Hutchinson begins Pizza Ranch Construction

It’s like nothing you’ve seen before!

HUTCHINSON, MN (April 17, 2017) - Around these parts, Pizza Ranch is becoming a legend and will soon open its 42nd Minnesota location! Known for its Legendary Pizza and Crispy Ranch Chicken, the restaurant began construction in mid-March, and the Pizza Ranch Construction Department is bringing out all the stops, with a completely new layout and design!

Doug and Jan Lake have been patiently waiting for the opening of this location since early last year and that hasn’t stopped the excitement from building. “We know people in the area will enjoy a family-friendly dining option, and we know they will be great Pizza Ranch guests, that we look forward to having” said Jan Lake, franchisee of the Shakopee, MN Pizza Ranch and soon-to-be Hutchinson, MN location.

What makes Pizza Ranch unique is that most stores offer a host of dining options and there’s something for everyone! Guests can enjoy a wide variety of dining options, like their signature pizzas, Crispy Ranch Chicken, fresh salad bar and dessert pizzas. But it’s not only buffet; guests can also order chicken or their favorite pizza for Carry Out or Delivery!

You can expect to receive the same, Legendary Pizza Ranch food and service, that you can enjoy at any of the 200 locations but what you might not expect, is the new design Pizza Ranch is bringing! Pizza Ranch has recently worked to improve the operations, and building décor of their restaurants with the goal to become more relevant in today’s marketplace. Guests will notice a difference in the décor and layout of the restaurant, as well as improvement in the speed of our signature Buffet Your Way requests. Although you won’t directly see the improvements in the kitchen, you will notice the new one-sided buffet and the process used to keep it full and fresh.

But what truly makes Pizza Ranch different is their people. The owners, managers and employees of Pizza Ranch strive to make their customers feel special... and it shows. “We’re ready to bring an environment that guests can enjoy and make them feel like they’re part of our family. We have people that have worked with us for 5 years. It’s just a family environment with our guests and employees, and that’s what really drew us to Pizza Ranch,” said Lake.

Pizza Ranch began in Hull, Iowa, in 1981, as an idea of Adrie Groeneweg, who was just 19 years old. As of February 2017, Pizza Ranch has 200 locations across 13 States, that feature legendary pizzas, Crispy Ranch Chicken, salads and desserts, all of which can be delivered right to your door.
