Pizza Ranch is Now Open in Oak Park Heights

Pizza Ranch opened the doors of its newest franchise across the street from Stillwater Area High School in Oak Park Heights this week.

Pizza Ranch’s buffet features pizza, broasted chicken, sides, salad and dessert. Pizza Ranch also offers delivery, pick-up and catering options.

The new franchise location is the second for lifelong Stillwater residents Ernie and Kris Swanson, along with their son, Ernie Swanson Jr., and daughters Julie Hove and Jennifer Swanson.

The Oak Park Heights restaurant is open Sunday – Thursday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m – 10 p.m.

“Opening a Pizza Ranch in our hometown has been a dream for our family for years,” Ernie Swanson Sr. said. “We’re excited to get involved with the community and help people host their local events, run fundraisers and celebrate together at our restaurant.”

Pizza Ranch opened on Jan. 2. It is the 41st Pizza Ranch location in Minnesota.
