The Pizza Ranch Story

Our founder Adrie Groeneweg took note when dozens of his community members in Hull, Iowa were driving to a nearby community just to have pizza. With a keen eye for business and an adventurous spirit, Adrie and his family opened the first Pizza Ranch in Hull in 1981. It wasn’t long before we opened our first franchise location in 1984. And just like that, our beloved franchise was born.

Since then, we’ve made a name for ourselves – today we have over 200 locations in 14 states – but we’ve always aimed to be the ultimate host: inviting, welcoming and genuine. We measure our success by the quality of the relationships we’ve fostered with our guests, team members and franchisees alike. Suffice it to say that while we are constantly improving our recipes and décor, we never skimp on neighborly hospitality either for our guests or our franchisees.

We’ve now been at this for more than 35 years, but it feels like we’re just getting started.


Why Franchise With Pizza Ranch?

At Pizza Ranch®, we offer more than you might expect. Including an opportunity to build wealth and gain financial independence for your family.

When you own your own Pizza Ranch, you join a welcoming culture with industry-leading support and total community involvement with other franchisees within the company and your neighborhoods, cities and towns. You’ll be the owner of your own business, in charge of growing and maintaining the integrity of our company and brand. And don’t forget our nationally renowned and downright delicious menu options that keep our guests coming back.


Our Franchise Support

We provide unrivaled support and guidance each step of the way. When you sign a Franchise Agreement with Pizza Ranch®, you won’t have to build a brand-new, beloved concept from the ground up. Our proven systems have helped franchisees launch over 200 restaurants and become thriving business owners, providing for their families and their communities. In addition to benefiting from our experience (over 35 years!) and success, we give you the tools you need from day one.

Don’t get us wrong, restaurant ownership is fast-paced, demanding work. Expect to be making tough decisions, building and managing relationships with (at first) unfamiliar faces and, in a general sense, just working hard. That said, from finding the perfect location to the grand opening and beyond, we’ll help you apply your skills and savvy to make the choices that we know have worked for other franchisees.

Here is some of the support we offer:

  • Site Selection
  • Initial Training
  • Ongoing Support
  • Pizza Ranch University
  • Marketing
  • Culinary Research and Development
  • PR Financial
  • Purchasing Power

Our Ideal Candidate

We’re looking for people who are passionate about service and success. We can teach you about our products and processes. So, while you should have business or management experience and/or aptitude, it doesn’t have to be in the restaurant industry. What’s more important is that you’re able to make connections in your community and effectively run your business.

Our criteria includes:

  • Desire to align with our vision and mission
  • Ability to follow and put trust in our proven systems
  • Financial strength and the ability to obtain project financing
  • Enthusiasm and high energy for a fast-paced environment
  • Understanding of business concepts and a passion for operational excellence
