Rumors have been going around the Storm Lake area about the popular pizza chain, The Pizza Ranch, moving to the area.
According to Vice President of Pizza Ranch Inc., Ryan Achterhoff, Storm Lake has been an area of interest.
"Right now it would be a premature to say that Pizza Ranch is coming to Storm Lake, Achterhoff said. "We have a franchisee that is very interested in developing a location."
There are many issues that Pizza Ranch Inc. considers before opening a new location including development and the financial strength of the franchisee.
"We do not have a set time for how long the process (of selecting a location) will be, but we should have more of a definite answer in 30 days," Achterhoff said. He did confirm that if a location does open it will be at the earliest in spring of 2007.
