So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.


This blog is here to bless and benefit those around us. It is a Monday through Friday weekly inspiration/devotional written by a rotating group of several Pizza Ranch Restaurant Support Center staff members. We hope that you find encouragement, inspiration and maybe some nudges from God through it.

Vision Statement:

“To glorify God by positively impacting the world.”

Mission Statement:

“To give every guest a legendary experience.”

Pizza Ranch Way:

“Do Your Best”

“Be Friendly”

“Do the Right Thing”

“Show Respect for All”

“Pursue Excellence”

What We Believe:

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He can to help, to put the world right again. (John 3:16-17, The Message)

We believe that Jesus came to this Earth to save us from our sins. He lived a perfect and blameless life, yet went to the cross to die for our sins; He loves us that much. He died and was buried; Jesus died so that we may have life through Him. He rose again on the third day and is our living Savior. Anyone who believes in Jesus and places their faith in Him will stand as sinless in front of God one day. God will see Jesus in us and will accept us into heaven to be with Him forever.

If that’s not good news, we don’t know what is! To God be the glory!


Questions? In Need of Prayer?

If you have questions about what it means to follow Jesus or how to begin a relationship with Him, then we’d love to hear from you and point you in the right direction. If you would like prayer over a situation, then we’d be glad to pray for you. Just let us know here.

    Oh if all business would run like this, the drama would be less. I haven’t found anything like this on the Wal-Mart site. Keep it up. If God is put first the rest will follow as his plan unfolds.

  • Pastor Peter Olson says:

    What a great job your restuarants do at making people feel a good, clean, and special food experiience. I have been going to the Baraboo, WI location with our Pastor Cluster group for years, and we enjoy the service with a smile, the food is delicious, and we feel rested and ready to go for the Lord after our meal!
    “To glorify God by positively impacting the world we live in” should be every Christian’s battle cry in these last days. May God bless you Pizza Ranch for taking a stand for Christ. May God give you favor in your resepective communities.
    I look forward to your new Portage, WI store, and hope for one in Madison, WI (or nearer anyway) soon. Agape, Pastor Peter

    I was in Billings,Mt on Business and discovered this was also the opening day for Pizza Ranch in Billings. My Wife and I decided to “Try it out”. We were surprised by the selection and amount of food available for the price in the buffet. The Food and Service was excellent.Will be returning to Pizza Ranch, next time in Billings. Keep up the Good Work! Jack

We will be back and I’ll be spreading the word about your wonderful place, here in Billngs. May God bless you, and I know He will!

  • David Cross says:

    well… i honestly thought this was something that was gonna be very cheesy… but now that i have walked through it… its a pretty awesome site… can’t wait to get into detail with this site rather than just skim it. 🙂

  • Tammy says:

    Love your vision and mission statement! Waiting for your opening in Liberty and praying you do well! Could you think about providing a healthy cheese option for those who are lactose intolerant. Diaya cheese is used by many restaurants in the area and many people ask for it!

  • jean gimnick says:

    I am so glad I work at Pizza Ranch. I really love it.

  • Brian says:

    It’s amazing to see a company that is still willing to plant it’s flag and declare what it really is. So many companies try to be everything to everyone, and in the process lose themselves. I am blown away by this organization’s determination to make this world a better place. All of this springing from little old Hull, Iowa. Amazing. If I weren’t so happy with my current employer, I would definitely be trying to get into Pizza Ranch.

  • My husband used to work at the main office in NW Iowa. He loved it, and loved the godly leadership of Adrie. We miss being a part of the company, but always wll have a soft spot in our hearts for PR! Thankfully there is a store only about 15 mins away from our new location in MN. We visit often!

  • We have a new Pizza Ranch in Sun Prairie, WI. We have eaten there twice already and love the food, the friendly staff and the awesome soft Christian music played in the background. Most restaurants play LOUD and annoying music and I usually can’t wait to get out of there, but not the situation at our new Pizza Ranch. So glad that you came to our small town…..Welcome!

  • sheldon waage says:

    I had no idea of your vision or mission statement. You’re our new fav. restaurant, period…

  • Jozie Mader says:

    We live outside of Billings, MT. I grew up in Iowa and was so happy to hear Pizza Ranch was coming “to town”. With our kids being the age they eat free, military discount, and the frequent diner card we were eating here every lunch time we came in (which is usually 1-4 times a week). We’ve been in this restaurant at least 100 times the past 2 years… and just today seen the sign to the right as you walk in with the vision and mission statement on it… My husband and i were thrilled. Not only is it a great thing, but i personally think you’ve executed the vision and mission very well. Thank You Billings Pizza Ranch.

  • Dorothy Thompson says:

    Just discovered this on my phone emails. Like this blog very much. Keep up the good work Pizza Ranch. Love your food, your website, and your mission very much. Will be checking back from time to time if not everyday.

  • Jim Kaiser says:

    My wife and I just discovered Pizza Ranch on a trip through Iowa last week. We were impressed by the quality of food that was served and the friendliness of staff. We are going tonight with a group to our local Pizza Ranch. Thank you for your Christian beliefs.

  • Dayleen Swanson says:

    I have loved the privilege to work for Pizza Ranch! It has been a great opportunity of personal & professional growth for me. I now have a huge family of Pizza Ranch Guests. Thank you for allowing me to represent the Christian values of Pizza Ranch & myself in a public place serving the Guests on a daily basis! Blessings as you continue to Positively Impact the World by Serving God!!

  • Sherry Wings says:
