Pizza Ranch: Opens new location in Green Bay
Midwest-based Family Concept Offers New Dining Option for Local Green Bay Residents
GREEN BAY, Wis. – (April 16, 2012) – Pizza Ranch, the popular Midwest buffet concept that features old Western décor, stone accent walls, decorative artwork and comfortable seating, announced today it will open its doors for business on April 23, 2012 at 2206 Main Street in Green Bay.
This is the first Pizza Ranch restaurant for local entrepreneurial husband and wife Todd and Lori Henschel and the brand’s 11th restaurant to open in Wisconsin. Knowing that they wanted to pursue Lori’s lifelong dream of owning a restaurant, Pizza Ranch’s family based-culture and passion for community was exactly what the Henschels were looking for to make their entrepreneurial dream a reality.
“We are very excited to provide our new neighbors in Green Bay a family-friendly place where they can enjoy fresh, great-tasting food and a one-of-a-kind dining experience,” Todd said. “Pizza Ranch is known throughout the area as the community gathering place. We invite Green Bay residents to stop by and relax in a family-friendly environment, while enjoying fresh, great-tasting food and an exceptional dining experience.”
The new 6,300 square-foot restaurant will seat up to 250 guests in a comfortable dining atmosphere that mimics the Old West. A spacious community room is available for special group and community gatherings, serving as a social hub for friends, families, teams, church groups, and more. In addition to its popular dine-in buffet, Pizza Ranch will offer carry-out and delivery service for any of its distinct menu items.
“Pizza Ranch has historically been community-oriented, and our goal is to become an integral part of the Green Bay neighborhood,” Lori added. “We look forward to partnering with Green Bay’s schools, church groups, sports teams and other local organizations to host fundraisers for each of their special events.”
Since its inception, a major component of Pizza Ranch’s mission has been a commitment to community. Pizza Ranch restaurants partner with local schools and organizations in fundraising activities and programs, such as food drives. Pizza Ranch will host a food-drive during its soft opening on Wednesday, April 18 and Thursday, April 19. Customers are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food or personal hygiene items during their visit to the new Green Bay Pizza Ranch. All donated items will remain in the community and will be distributed to Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay.
Menu items remain focused on traditional Pizza Ranch favorites, with recipes dating back to the company’s origins, in addition to new innovative feature pizzas and salads such as the Santa Fe Salad and the Brushfire Pizza. Pizza Ranch is also known for its legendary chicken, recognized by most as simply the “Country’s Best Chicken®.”
