Pizza Ranch Celebrates 40th Anniversary in December

40th Press release 960x620

Pizza Ranch Inc. is celebrating its 40th Anniversary next month. One of the most recognizable and awarded pizza chains in the Midwest began its legendary journey in a very humble way.

With the support of his parents and recipes tested in their kitchen, Adrie Groeneweg opened the first Pizza Ranch on December 21, 1981 in Hull, IA. From that one location and those original made-from-scratch recipes, Pizza Ranch has grown throughout the upper Midwest and beyond.

“When we opened the first Pizza Ranch, I just wanted to provide great pizza to the people of my hometown,” says Pizza Ranch CEO & Founder Adrie Groeneweg. “To now have over 200 locations in 15 states is a testament to four decades of faith, hard work and doing things the right way. In the kitchen. For our customers. And in our communities.”

Known for its legendary buffet and customer experience, Pizza Ranch has introduced new menu items and services over the past forty years, including The Country’s Best Chicken®, Cactus Bread® dessert pizza, FunZone Arcades, delivery, Buffet Your Way and more.

Pizza Ranch has also made a commitment to supporting the communities they serve with places to gather, fundraising efforts and events, employee scholarships and a Community Impact Award given annually to a local franchisee.

To help celebrate its 40th Anniversary, Pizza Ranch is offering guests a December-long pricing promotion on their famous Bronco™ pizza. Starting December 1, Pizza Ranch is throwing back to original prices on their #1 specialty pizza. All December long guests can get a large Bronco pizza for $10.25, a medium for $8 and a small for $5.50.

In addition to the Bronco pizza price promotion, Pizza Ranch is also giving away a brand-new 2021 Ford Bronco sport utility vehicle and hundreds of other prizes. Guests can enter the sweepstakes daily through a digital Scratch & Win contest at There is no purchase necessary to enter. The contest ends 12/31/21. You can see the official rules at
