2021 Community Impact Award 960x620

Pizza Ranch Inc. awarded its annual Community Impact Award to Randy & Lila Bauer of the Luverne Pizza Ranch at the company’s Awards Banquet held in Sioux Falls, SD on Tuesday, June 15th.

The Community Impact Award recognizes a franchisee or Ranch that has made a positive impact in their community and lives out the Pizza Ranch Vision, “To Glorify God by Positively Impacting the World.”

“This year, the award is going to go to quintessential ‘Community’ owners,” said Pizza Ranch Chief Vision Officer Perry Krosschell. “These owners have shown a personal and passionate desire to constantly impact their community, one person at a time, with a legendary experience.”

Lila has earned this award before and is a great example to the whole Pizza Ranch chain on what it means to put others first. If every town had a ‘Lila’, we would all be better off.

Randy & Lila were awarded $1,000 for receiving the Community Impact Award to donate to a local charity of their choosing. The donation will go to ‘Rock the Edge’ - a group of youth leaders & teens from Rock County in Minnesota that strive to bring Christian youth together for service and fellowship.
