Team of the Year Awarded to La Crosse, WI Pizza Ranch

Team of the Year

Orange City, IA — Pizza Ranch Inc. awarded La Crosse, WI Team of the Year at Pizza Ranch’s National Conference Awards Banquet held in Wisconsin Dells, WI on Tuesday, June 11th.

The Team of the Year award is presented annually to a restaurant who best exemplifies Pizza Ranch’s mission to provide every guest with a legendary experience through exceptional food, outstanding service, and meaningful community engagement. The award honors and recognizes the hard work, commitment, and dedication of the best Pizza Ranch team across the chain for the year.

Tristen Landers, La Crosse General Manager, presented the award to her team. “I have been beyond blessed with the most understanding staff I could’ve asked for. We have grown so much together. From our highschoolers learning how to navigate school, work and home life, to our retirees living out their golden years with us,” shared Tristen. “There have been challenges and wins. There's been celebrations and tears. And through it all we have stood tall and conquered all. Learning how to have grace with our opportunities, speaking up when help is needed and working as a team to attain our goals has been such an experience.”

Each team member of the La Crosse Pizza Ranch received a Scheels gift card worth $150 and enjoyed a stay at the Wisconsin Dells.

“When I think of a team, I think of working as a group for the same purpose. I think of lifting one another up. I think of holding each other accountable. I think of love for one another. I think of us,” said Landers. “I am so proud to call this team my family.”
