Pizza Ranch

Various Locations | Commercial

Overview

Supporting Pizza Ranch in their mission to provide all guests with a legendary experience, ISG prepared a prototype design to maintain brand consistency and control construction costs in their restaurants across the country.


Opportunity

With 200 locations across 13 states, Pizza Ranch must continually develop design services for both renovations and new construction tailored to their growing franchise.

Solution

ISG worked with Pizza ranch to develop a prototype design for its restaurants across the country. Through changes in both materials and construction methods, ISG created a modified prototype that reduced construction expenses while leaving flexibility for creative uses of materials and a refreshed facade for each restaurant. The typical Pizza Ranch upholds a capacity of 224 individuals, and contains approximately 6,120 square feet of restaurant space. During the site selection process, assistance also comes in the form of various pre-design services. Facilitating coordination with vendors, including beverage and kitchen equipment suppliers, is another crucial element in setting up each Pizza Ranch location for success.

While prototype restaurants maintain consistency, there are site situations that require creative thinking and ingenuity. One such project occurred in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to full-service design and construction administration services, assistance with the City approval process was necessary, including the required PUD Amendment, Site Plan Approval, and Exterior Elevation Approval. This restaurant is based on the corporate prototype and has a 224-seat capacity, but in this instance, the property was located in the 100-year flood plain. This challenge was overcome by raising the building’s elevation. Furthermore, pedestrian and utility easements encumbered the perimeter of the south, east, and north property lines, which reduced the area available for parking. This required an innovative design solution in order to meet the 92 parking spaces required by the City.
