Pizza Ranch began in Hull, Iowa, in 1981, as an idea of Adrie Groeneweg, who was just 19 years old.
The first menu was developed by Lorraine Groeneweg, Adrie's mother, and included six specialty pizzas and single topping pizzas. The sauce and the dough were made from scratch, and the cheese grated by hand, while other ingredients were purchased or pre-made.
People tried Pizza Ranch – and they loved it. Pizza Ranch grew and grew. Today Pizza Ranch extends into nine states and is the largest regional pizza restaurant chain in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
Over the years, changes have been made to virtually every aspect of Pizza Ranch's products, services and operations. Because guest satisfaction is one of the focal points at Pizza Ranch, they continuously make changes to increase consistency, efficiency, quality and selection.
