About Pizza Ranch
In the heart of every cowboy is a dream.
Adrie Groeneweg had one that started in Hull, Iowa, in 1981 when he was just 19 years old. It was simple. Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza? With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born.
The residents of Hull flocked to the young restaurant for made-from-scratch sauce and dough and other fresh ingredients. As word spread, Pizza Ranch grew. The dream that began in the heart of a young man now extends to thirteen states. It’s been quite a trail ride.
Every legend starts with a story. From humble beginnings in a small Iowa town to 200 plus restaurant locations across the Midwest, Pizza Ranch has grown with loyal customers and hard-working franchise owners. Striving to uphold the company’s Mission and Vision, each Pizza Ranch location is a part of our lore and can trace its roots back to the very beginning of the story.
