GILLETTE – A legendary buffet and dining concept is coming to Gillette.

Pizza Ranch, home of the Legendary Buffet boasting craveable pizza and the Country’s Best Chicken, is set to open its doors to the Gillette community the early months of 2022. The location at 1000 West 2nd Street will be owned by Anthony and Victor Toscana and managed by Ray Marini.

“We chose to make our homes in Gillette. It’s where we’ve raised our children and grown our businesses,” said Toscana. “We know firsthand that Gillette is a great place to live, and we look forward to this exciting new chapter here with Pizza Ranch.”

Pizza Ranch will not only provide cravable pizza, the Country’s Best Chicken, salads and desserts, but it will also boast a FunZone arcade that will provide fun for all ages. The FunZone will include a variety of games, as well as a redemption prize counter with prizes big and small.

“We love the consistent commitment to customer service and that the menu truly provides something for everyone,” Toscana said.

Pizza Ranch is also known for its community outreach initiatives, offering fundraising events for eligible local non-profits, supplying party rooms for business meetings, gatherings, birthday parties and more. “It’s no secret that Gillette is full of busy, hardworking families,” Toscana said. “Whether they’re stopping in to check out the buffet or hitting the drive-through for hot, fresh take-out, Pizza Ranch is the perfect meal solution for these folks.”

“In December (2021), our Founder, his family and our entire Pizza Ranch system celebrated the 40th anniversary,” said Pizza Ranch’s Chief Development Officer Mark Souba. “You cannot survive in the restaurant and hospitality industry for that long without exceptional franchisees, exceptional staff and exceptional food served at a good value. Between 2010 and 2019 our restaurant sites grew by 147%. And while the pandemic slowed our growth, we are back on track and demand for our food and the experience at a Pizza Ranch is soaring once again.”
