April 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // ORANGE CITY, Iowa – In celebration of the National Park Service’s centennial anniversary, Pizza Ranch, the legendary buffet-dining concept revered for its community leadership initiatives, announced today its donation of $25,000 to the National Park Foundation. The donation will help the organization’s mission of enriching the country’s national parks and programs, safeguarding decades of heritage and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts.
“Our country is fortunate to have so many magnificent and diverse national parks from coast to coast, and it’s our job to help protect them, connect people from all backgrounds to them, and inspire the next generation of park stewards,” said Stefanie Mathew, vice president of corporate partnerships for the National Park Foundation. “This generous donation from Pizza Ranch will help us carry on a proud legacy of private support for our national parks.”
To kick off the celebration, Pizza Ranch also announced today its “Find Your Park” promotion. From now until April 30, guests are encouraged to use their Ranch Rewards card to be entered into a drawing to win a 5-day, 4-night trip for four to any national park in the United States. The prize includes the cost of airfare and hotel accommodations, a $250 gift card and an annual Federal Recreational Lands Pass valid for free entrance to national parks and thousands of federal recreation sites across the country.
This promotion is an example of the countless ways there are to #FindYourPark. Launched in March 2015, Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque is a public awareness and education movement to inspire people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate, and support America’s national parks and community-based programs. Celebrating the National Park Service Centennial and setting the stage for the Service's next 100 years, #FindYourPark invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation's natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.
Pizza Ranch guests can earn an entry every time they use their Ranch Rewards card for dine-in, carryout or delivery. Two entries will be awarded for every purchase that includes a Coca-Cola product.
“We are thrilled to be able to send one of our loyal guests on the trip of a lifetime,” said Adrie Groeneweg, co-founder and president of Pizza Ranch. “Everyone should be able to experience the beauty of our national parks; the National Park Service ensures that future generations will have that opportunity, and Pizza Ranch is a proud supporter of the work they do.”
