Orange City, Iowa – (February 25, 2011) – Winter is slowly coming to an end, and Pizza Ranch is putting a little spring in its step to enhance its great tasting, original mile-long buffet to make it even tastier.

The popular Midwest family-style buffet restaurant, known for its tight bond with the communities it serves, is helping diners shake off the winter blues with the introduction of the new Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza and the Cran-Tastic Salad.

“Pizza Ranch prides itself on offering unique flavor profiles, and our new pizza and salad fit in perfectly with our goal to tempt the palettes of our guests with innovative menu items,” said Gwen Lahrs, senior advertising and marketing manager for Pizza Ranch. “We couldn’t be more excited to add a pair of incredibly tasty meal options offered at a great value.”

Both new menu items are crafted with the finest ingredients:

  • Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza: Made with roasted chicken, smoked bacon, diced tomatoes, ranch dressing and cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
  • Cran-Tastic Salad: Contains dried cranberries, candied pecans, chopped lettuce, feta cheese, red onion slices and raspberry walnut vinaigrette.

“The combination of ingredients in our new pizza and salad are sure to delight the taste buds of our customers,” added Lahrs. “We’ve built our reputation on offering guests flavor combinations that meet their needs and leave them satisfied.”

Both buffet items will be available through the end of May 2011.

Pizza Ranch has 154 locations in Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan, Illinois and Kansas.
