Diers Ave. in Grand Island will soon be lit up with the Pizza Ranch name, as the rapidly growing restaurant franchise began construction on its building in late July. The location will be owned by local resident, Jessica Kenyon, and existing Pizza Ranch Franchisees, Brad Cleveringa, Tyler Sickles and Harlyn Vander Griend. The 7,203-sq. ft. area at Park Island Square will be filled with a full buffet featuring Legendary Pizzas and The Country’s Best Chicken®, along with a Fun Zone Arcade.
The restaurant will be operated by long-time resident, Greg Tatro. “The Vision and Mission are what originally attracted me to Pizza Ranch. Once I started diving more into the concept, I knew it was the perfect fit for me,” said Tatro. “We have a unique Christian culture, great food at an affordable price and will always be providing legendary service in the restaurant and in the community.” Tatro shared he was passionate about developing team members, and he is looking forward to sharing the Pizza Ranch Way with the 100 employees he plans on hiring.
Pizza Ranch is known for its community outreach initiatives, and gives back by helping serve those in need, offering fundraising events for eligible local non-profits, supplying party rooms for business meetings, gatherings and more! The Grand Island Pizza Ranch will also have birthday party packages combining their Legendary food and the Fun Zone Arcade!
“We feel like we’re at a huge advantage with our party rooms and arcade in Grand Island, and we’re looking forward to giving children the best birthday experience possible,” said Kenyon. “Our Fun Zone Arcade is for both kids, and the kids at heart! There aren’t a lot of options in Grand Island, so this will be the perfect stop for food, drinks and fun,” Kenyon added.
Aside from impacting the community and building relationships with their guests, Pizza Ranch is different from other dining establishments, in that it offers an array of dining options. Their Legendary Pizza, Crispy Ranch Chicken, fresh salad bar and dessert on the buffet, can also be ordered for carry out or delivered right to your home, including catering options.
Pizza Ranch and the ownership team have not announced an opening day, but you can follow them on Facebook at facebook.com/pizzaranchgrandisland for construction updates, pictures and to learn more about the Pizza Ranch brand.
