Crystal, MN – Pizza Ranch, the legendary buffet-dining concept revered for its community leadership initiatives, announced today its plans with existing franchisees Randall and Sheryl Hubin to open a new location in Crystal, MN. This restaurant will occupy over 10,000 sq. ft of the Crystal Gallery mall, adjacent to Becker park - a city landmark. Moving into what was previously the Old Country Buffet location, The Hubins plan to do an extensive renovation of the space to reflect the Pizza Ranch brand, including the addition of Pizza Ranch’s Fun Zone Arcade. This will be the first Fun Zone Arcade in the state of Minnesota, an exciting attraction for all guests.
Enveloping guests in an authentic ranch-themed environment, Pizza Ranch brings to life an experience that blends just the right mix of mouthwatering buffet menu items and community camaraderie. Additionally, Pizza Ranch provides its loyal fans with opportunities to enjoy their pizzas, chicken, desserts and more outside the Ranch through delivery, carry out, and catering options.
Pizza Ranch continues to showcase a commitment to serving communities beyond its legendary food. The restaurant partners with schools, churches, non-profits and other organizations to host fundraisers and social functions. Restaurants also offer a Community Impact Night, during which members of participating organizations help serve Pizza Ranch guests while they earn donations 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.
Franchisees Randall and Sheryl Hubin were recognized with the Community Impact Award in 2016 for their first Pizza Ranch location in Andover, MN. It opened in December 2013 and was named the CMDC Emerging Business of the Year in 2014. They have won many awards for service and food quality each year they have been open, including being named Franchisees of the Year at the Pizza Ranch 2017 National Conference in June.
