Pizza Ranch was recently named to Franchise Business Review’s third annual “Culture100” list. The list recognizes the top 100 franchise brands in a 2022 report on the Best Franchise Cultures.
Cultivating its mission “To give every guest a legendary experience” since its inception in 1981, Pizza Ranch connects with its communities in a way that provides bridges for friends, family and colleagues to come together. Today, Pizza Ranch is based in Orange City, Iowa and owns, operates and franchises over 200 locations in 14 states. Consistent growth has been a Pizza Ranch staple, as the brand has become a beacon of community involvement and exceptional food. The Pizza Ranch buffet features legendary pizzas, crispy ranch chicken, salads and desserts, and is delivered with an unmatched service quality.
Pizza Ranch was among more than 300 franchise brands, representing more than 30,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the best franchise cultures. Franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems. The brands that were selected received the highest overall ratings based on 12 questions that looked at perception of brand vision, team culture, honesty and integrity, and overall support.
“Every franchise organization has a different culture and vibe. Some franchises are more serious and formal, while others are more relaxed and casual,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “A franchise company’s culture – and your potential fit into that culture – should guide your franchise investment decision. Looking at data on how current franchisees rate a brand’s culture will tell you how well the franchise leadership team is executing on the vision of the brand, and how well the community of support staff and franchisees work together to achieve their business objectives. The best place to start is with the brands on this year’s Culture100 list. All of them had an FBR “Culture Score” of 80+ on a 100 point satisfaction scale, putting them in the top quartile of franchises when it comes to culture.”
