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. Two and a half years after the Hull Pizza Ranch opened Adrie received an inquiry from a businessman in Mountain Lake, Minnesota, wanting to know if Adrie was interested in franchising his concept. As it turns out, the answer was yes and the first Pizza Ranch franchise was born in 1984. Today, with more than 200 franchised locations in thirteen states, Pizza Ranch is the largest, most recognized pizza chain in the Midwest—and showing no signs of slowing any time soon. In addition to the legendary buffet and customer first mindset, much of the credit for success of Pizza Ranch can be traced to a rock-solid foundation built upon Adrie’s father’s original “pay it forward” attitude.
