The rapidly growing restaurant franchise, Pizza Ranch, known for its Legendary Pizza and Crispy Ranch Chicken, began construction on North Sanders Street in June, with plans to become Montana’s 3rd location. The Helena Pizza Ranch will be operated by Wagons West Management, which also runs Pizza Ranch in Butte and Billings. Wagons West also operates five other Pizza Ranch locations said Tim Mazzaferro, Wagons West Director of Operations.
Mike Christianson, Franchisee of the Wagons West Pizza Ranch locations, is continuing to expand in Montana and is excited to bring a family-friendly dining option to the area. Not only does Pizza Ranch serve Legendary Pizza that families love, they’ll also be adding a Fun Zone Arcade to the Helena location that will bring additional excitement for the kids. Mike eagerly explained, “There isn’t another option for kids and adults both in the area to have fun, so adding a Fun Zone Arcade just takes it one step further in creating entertainment for the whole family!”
Mike, along with his wife, Angie, fell in love with the Pizza Ranch food before becoming franchisees had even crossed their mind. They were blown away by the Vision and Mission of Pizza Ranch and immediately knew it was a great fit for them. “We knew this was the right thing to do and with our seventh location opening this Winter, we’re still certain we’ve done the right thing,” said Mike. Following the Vision and Mission of Pizza Ranch, Mike and Angie are excited to positively impact lives in Helena, and all their Pizza Ranch locations, from restaurant guests to their employees.
Known for its community outreach initiatives, Pizza Ranch gives back by helping serve those in need, offering fundraising events for eligible local non-profits, supplying party rooms for business meetings, birthdays and more. Christianson said, “Our team will strive to be as involved in the community as we can be, partnering up with local schools, churches and businesses. We have many great programs in place.”
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.
