Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development, Inc., in partnership with The R.H. Johnson Company, announced that Pizza Ranch, Inc. purchased 1.47 acres of land in the North Oak Village Shopping Center, located at North Oak and Vivion Roads in Kansas City, Missouri.

Pizza Ranch will build a 5,960-square-foot free-standing restaurant on the site, which is located on the southwest corner of North Oak Village.

The new location is scheduled to open in December. April Long of NAI Capital Realty represented Pizza Ranch, and Chuck Zoog of The R.H. Johnson Company represented the seller.

Pizza Ranch plans to open four restaurants in the Kansas City area in the next year. Most are franchise operations, but the Kansas City–area stores will be corporate stores.

The restaurant will join Wendy’s, Arby’s, and Panda Express restaurants, along with PETCO, Office Depot, and Lowe’s at North Oak Village.
