About Pizza Ranch

At age 19, Adrie Groeneweg opened the first Pizza Ranch in Hull, Iowa, offering pizza recipes developed by his mother Lorraine. The midwest pizza chain's menu has since expanded to include chicken, buffalo wings, dessert and salad. Customers can order from the menu or eat from a buffet. Franchising began in 1984, and the company's headquarters has moved from Hull to Orange City, Iowa.
