Rules

It’s surprising, normally in a sweepstakes survey giveaway there is a list of rules that all entrants need to follow in order to qualify for the prize if they are drawn as the winner. I had a look for them in Pizza Ranch’s survey and couldn’t find any!

You know what that means – no rules 😀 Just head on in, complete the survey, and you’ll go in the running.

Instructions

Woo! There aren’t any rules. But you will new a few pieces of information in order to verify your purchase and be able to start the survey:

  • The four (4) digit restaurant number of the Pizza Ranch you visited
  • The date of your visit
  • The exact time of your purchase
  • The total of your purchase
  • The ticket number of your transaction

Luckily, you shouldn’t need to go hunting to find it all. In fact – it’s all on the receipt you have:

  1. Head to the website that’s hosting the survey (below) on your computer

  3. Once the system has verified your information, you’ll be asked to confirm the location of the Pizza Ranch you’re claiming you’ve visited
  4. If it’s the right one, click next, otherwise go back and re-enter the store number again
  5. Once you’re happy with the location, click confirm and you can begin the survey

    • City
    • State
    • Zip Code
  7. Enter in your details and you’re good to go! You’re now in the running to win – good luck 🙂

I ended up taking the survey myself recently. Here are a few of the questions they asked me:

  • Did I eat at the buffet? Order delivery? Or dine-in on the menu?
  • How satisfied was I with the overall experience I had?
  • Did I think I received good value for money?
  • How well did a team member handle any queries I had?
  • How good was the food? Was the order I received accurate?
  • How likely is it that I’d choose to eat at Pizza Ranch again in the future?

I took a few snaps of the survey so you know how it looks like:

Why does Pizza Ranch care?

Usually, when a company decides to ask customers for their feedback, they believe something’s going wrong in their business and they’re trying to determine what it is. In Pizza Ranch’s case, it could also be the massive competition they’re facing from the ever-growing number of dedicated pizza restaurants in the United States (there are 100+ chains).

On a similar note, Cici’s Pizza is also hosting a survey to improve their customer satisfaction. It’s called CicisVisit and you’ll get a free pizza coupon if you take it! 😀

Whatever the case may be, they’re actively seeking out how your experience was, and what they can do to improve it the next time you head in (that’s if you head back as well – depending on how your experience was). So go on – tell Pizza Ranch how you felt about dining in or grabbing delivery from one of their stores. They value your opinion and want to reward some of the lucky survey takers with a nice big reward of a $250 Gift Card as well!

About their business

I would never in a million years associate cowboys with pizza… but, Pizza Ranch, which was founded in the mid-west, definitely puts the yee-haw into their oh-so-famous slices. It was the fruit of labor for a young, 19-year-old boy called Adrie Groeneweg.

How it all began

The young entrepreneur was sick to death of driving out of town just to get a slice of his favorite food. So, with the help of his parents (and more specifically his mom’s delicious pizza sauce recipe) he opened his first store in Hull, Iowa in 1981.

One of their major selling points were their cowboy-themed pizza names, a cool idea he got from his parents. Staple pizzas included The Texan Taco, The Bronco (meat) and The Sweet Whine 🐷 (ham and pineapple).

Current situation

The company sure has done well for itself since then. They now have 207 locations across 14 states in the US. If you’re pizza obsessed like me, you can even grab yourself a slice of the pizza pie as they have a ton of franchise opportunities available in 13 of the states.

One of my fave franchisee stories from Pizza Ranch is that of owners Todd and Patty Pharis of the Sioux Falls location…

They ditched their corporate 9-5 life (the dream) and now have one of the most successful and fun-loving stores in the whole country. They have an impressive games area, free event spaces and have even invested in some neat tracking technology for deliveries (ideal for folks like me who get incredibly impatient when awaiting pizza goodness :P).

Alongside pizza, the popular chain also serves up fried chicken, which is featured as part of their buffet, and a salad bar for those of us “trying” to watch the waistline. To be honest, I never touch the salad bar in a pizza joint, carb me up baby!!

Fun fact about their buffet too, it’s a common misconception that their famous lunchtime buffets were always a staple, but they didn’t start them until the second store was built in 1983 over in Orange City. Before that, they only did buffets on a Tuesday night.

Here’s a neat little video highlighting what makes their buffet stand out:

Most interesting fact about this place – It’s the one-stop pizza shop for soon to be presidents…

Yes, you heard right! This chain has a lot of things that fascinate me, but their Presidential seal of approval is my favorite. Many future presidential candidates head on down to Pizza Ranch during the Iowa caucuses. Whether you love him or hate him, even president Trump couldn’t resist a slice, heading over to the Waukee store with owner Adrie during his 2016 campaign.

So, what do they value most?

Well, apart from pizza of course, I wanted to dig deeper into the company and found out what makes them tick, so I had a quick browse on their website. They’re not your typical corporate food chain AT ALL! And, TBH, any company that uses words like ‘legendary’ in their mission gets the nod from me.

They’re very open about their Christian routes and values, and their staff will genuinely pray for you if you ask! They have a prayer request form in all their stores if you’re in desperate need of some divine intervention mid-slice. Now I’ve always found pizza heavenly, but never had the staff pray for me in a pizza joint, that’s next level if you ask me!

They have an epic hiring policy and in Iowa they even take on seniors. These seniors are the new ‘teenagers’ of the fast food giant and management and customers all around love them thanks to their genuine connection with patrons. You have to read that story I linked there bout Miss Donna… I would totally go to Pizza Ranch just to have a chat and get served by her, how cute is she?! 😍

Psst! They’re still growing, with more stores opening up everywhere:

If you ever head up past the border into Canada and are craving some pizza similar to Pizza Ranch, why not check out Pizza Pizza? Just like Pizza Ranch, there’s an official Pizza Pizza survey where you can win some free food just for leaving your feedback!

What was my experience with them?

I’ve always enjoyed Pizza Ranch – their buffet is extremely good value for money. I mean, so many different types of pizzas, salads, and sides, it’s hard to not leave their restaurant in a massive food coma!

Even the desserts (try the dessert pizza next time if you haven’t) are absolutely wonderful. You can grab a small little slice of each of them, try out all the flavors, then head back for round two and stock up on what you liked the most 😀
