It amazing some of the things that you can do when you have a plan and a whole lot of faith. Pizza Ranch was born on values and faith and they have a mission to glorify God by being more positive and bringing that to the world. they have been a success and are continuing their mission.
Adrie Groeneweg had a dream that started in Hull, IA, in 1981 when he was just 19 years old. It was simple. Why does everyone have to drive out-of-town to get a pizza? With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born. Pizza Ranch’s vision and mission is to glorify God by positively impacting the world and to give every guest a legendary experience. They have 190+ locations across 13 states including Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.
On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a CD called Living Hope containing twelve songs from many of their favorite Christian artists. Most of the songs are brand-new and written exclusively for this CD around the theme of Hope. Artists include Colton Dixon, Francesca Batistelli, Ellie Holcomb, Sidewalk Prophets, Kevin Max, Bart Millard, Passion Band featuring Kristian Stanfill, Michael W. Smith, and Mark Schultz.
When I listened to this CD, I was expecting it to be pretty mellow, but I was pleasantly surprised that the music was upbeat and the words were filled with hope and inspiration. I loved the music and there are so many great songs and artists on it. It came very fast and the message that each song brings is simply awesome. Maybe you have a friend going through a hard time or you just love uplifting music, this would make a great addition to any collection!
The CD will be available to purchase for $5 plus tax exclusively in Pizza Ranch restaurants or for download at pizzaranch.com/livinghope through August 31. How awesome is it going to be to have a fabulous CD to listen to in the car, taking some time to worship and filling your heart with Hope. I know for us if we have a good CD playing the kids usually get into it and we have a much smoother ride, with fewer questions.
From Adrie Groeneweg, President & CEO of Pizza Ranch, Inc.: “This album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch. Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album. Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project. As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope.” Pizza Ranch is also giving away one of their Living Hope CD to one lucky reader.
