Ten Pizza Ranch employees were recently awarded a $2,000 college scholarship by Pizza Ranch and Coca-Cola to support their pursuit of continued education through its Pizza Ranch Coca-Cola Scholarships program. Each of the recipients were nominated by the restaurant’s General Manager/Franchisee and was one of ten employees system-wide to receive the prize grant this year. To date, Pizza Ranch Inc. has given out over $80,000 in grants to its employees through the Pizza Ranch Coca-Cola Scholarships program. The 2016 Scholarship Winners are highlighted below.

“These young individuals are outstanding employees and they embody what Pizza Ranch is all about,” said the Pizza Ranch/Coca-Cola Scholarship Committee. “Although we are in the food business, to us it’s much more. On a daily basis we hold ourselves accountable to our guests and the community to positively impact their lives. Our employees are making our communities a better place.”
