New Pizza Ranch to Open in August

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Last fall, John and Julie McVey, Owners of the Pizza Ranch in Morton, announced they had purchased land near the Morton KFC and would begin construction on a bigger restaurant building to accommodate their growing business.

 The new Pizza Ranch will be 500 square feet bigger then the current building and will seat 200 people compared to the 175 they can currently accommodate.  "Our new party room is going to be great too," said John McVey.  "It will be able to seat up to 64 for bigger parties or can be divided into two spaces for smaller patties.  We are really excited to have a bigger and more flexible space for private groups."

In addition to a more spacious dining room, the expanded restaurant will have bigger buffets and an ice cream machine.  "The most exciting thing for us is knowing that we will be able to better serve our guests," said John McVey.  "So many of our customers are very loyal to us and we are thrilled to have a new home for them to come to with more amenities."

The McVey's are planning on hiring around 25 new people to accommodate their expanded space.  "We will begin hiring shortly before the opening," said McVey.

The McVey's are hoping for an opening the first of August.  "It is later than we previously had planned," said John McVey.  "The harsh winter weather has set us back a little but has not dampened our spirits.  We have been part of the community of Morton for over 9 years now and with our new facility look forward to serving our guest for many more years to come."
