Pizza Ranch, the buffet-dining concept known for its community leadership initiatives, announced the opening of a new location in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Enveloping guests in a ranch-themed environment, Pizza Ranch brings to life an experience that blends buffet menu items and community camaraderie. Additionally, Pizza Ranch provides its loyal fans with opportunities to enjoy pizzas, chicken, desserts, and more outside the ranch through delivery and catering options.
“The smile and joy on people’s faces when we see them visit their local Pizza Ranch is a touching experience for us. We are very excited to share that experience with the people of Fort Dodge,” says Scott Davis, co-owner of Fort Dodge’s new Pizza Ranch, opening Monday, September 1, at 3311 5th Street. “Our patrons know what kind of pizza they like, and we know they’re going to love our signature options, along with our crispy chicken, salads, and desserts, all in our fun and unique restaurant.”
The new Pizza Ranch opens in Fort Dodge amid a dynamic growth phase for the brand. In addition to this new location, Pizza Ranch has three more openings through 2014, in Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, to add to the five other locations added earlier this year. Pizza Ranch’s dedication to evolving its iconic buffet with trending recipes, while sustaining favorites such as the Crispy Ranch Chicken, has won over a growing base of guests.
“Fort Dodge is such a natural fit for Pizza Ranch. We can’t wait to get involved with the surrounding community and help folks host their local events, run fundraisers, and celebrate together under our big, ranch roof,” says Michelle Snyder, manager for Pizza Ranch in Fort Dodge. “Our restaurant is going to change the way people hang out, by offering all the incredible food they can imagine with enough room to fill the town inside.”
Pizza Ranch in Fort Dodge, and in every town, showcases a commitment to serving communities beyond its legendary buffet. The restaurant partners with schools, churches, nonprofits, and other organizations to host fundraisers and social functions. Restaurants also offer a Community Impact Night, during which members of a participating organization help serve Pizza Ranch guests while they earn tips and a portion of sales from that night. Pizza Ranch prides itself on providing these opportunities to raise awareness and much needed funding for community groups and programs that represent and serve their hometowns.
The Pizza Ranch experience doesn’t end in the Fort Dodge restaurant. The brand extends its experience into the community through carryout, delivery service, and catering. All buffet items are available, along with specialized catering menus. Customized for every event, the catering program presents a unique opportunity to bring the Ranch anywhere.
