Pizza Ranch in Apple Valley Closes 🍕

Not for lack of business but for other reasons, Pizza Ranch in Apple Valley has closed after 10 years. Chamber President Ed Kearney had coffee with owner Dan Peterson and learned that Dan is thrilled to keep his Crooked Pint Restaurant in Apple Valley (operating next door) as it is doing very well. Dan decided to sell most of the restaurants that he owns throughout the Twin Cities in order to focus on his favorites, be less worried during this labor shortage and simplify his life to focus on quality time with his family and grandkids.

SO WHO IS MOVING INTO PIZZA RANCH?
Dan, who still owns the property, has three signed leases and will divide Pizza Ranch into a dentist office and two other tenants that he can’t name yet but are ready to build. He likely would have kept Pizza Ranch going except these new tenants are a fabulous addition to Apple Valley and the youth workers that Pizza Ranch depended on were difficult to find and keep.

Another dentist is not fabulous. Maybe you should have paid the kids more so they would stay. 🤷

Like another dentist is needed in the area. What kool Aid have you been drinking. The Pizza Ranch was a Great place for families. Been to Crooked Pint not a friend place. Surely not for families!!

This is very sad. My son worked here and was given no notice of the closure. It was his first job and he loved it. 😕

This will be the third dentist in the NE corner of 160th and Pilot Knob. Not to mention that there are 2 others in the SE corner by Hy-Vee. That’s five dental offices in less than a square mile. We don’t need more dentists. 😩

My Lord. Another dental office??? I am sad to see Pizza Ranch close. Best fried chicken ever!!! I surely hope the other 2 businesses are restaurants, preferably small business owners we can support.

Can’t believe your doing this! Very disappointed with your choice, like we need another Dentist! You couldn’t be more wrong!!

This is so sad. It was the perfect place for me to meet my daughter & grandbabies. It was right in the middle. Kids got there fill of pizza & I loved salad bar & chicken!!

Very disappointed that Pizza Ranch closed!! Get someone else in to run it instead of dividing it up!! Guess we will quit going to his other restaurants too!

So disappointed pizza ranch is one of my families favorite spots. Will you sell the pressure broaster? Completely heart broken.

Really a big bummer to lose this place. Our family enjoyed it.

Family friendly restaurant is what's needed there, but of course this owner won't welcome that.

We loved Pizza Ranch. I don’t think we need another dentist office. 🙄

Yay! More dental offices! Super excited for it to open. <Sarcasm> 🤐

Our girls fav place to go for family dinners out & birthday parties. Thanks for all the yummy food & wonderful memories made! This Pizza Ranch will very much be missed by us

Yay a dentist office! 🦷 🙄 “a fabulous addition”😂 that’s hilarious!

I will miss Pizza Ranch. Hope they put in a restaurant with a buffet. No banks or coffee shops.

Crooked Pint has horrible service and is dirty. I think it will suffer when everything opens up across the street.

I think there are enough dental offices in that 3 block area.

Apple Valley needs another dental office like I need a hole in my head. Ridiculous.

Love the very last part "the youth workers that Pizza Ranch depended on were difficult to find and keep". 🤔

The City has to approve whatever business replaces Pizza Ranch. It's on the City Council for approving dental offices, mattress and banking facilities.

Why can't we get a Family restaurant, not taking kids to bars.

Pizza was terrible, owner saw the light that Punch pizza and Texas Roadhouse across the street would of put Pizza Ranch out of business anyways!

Dentist 🤬, why dont you just add a chiropractor and nail salon and make it useless for most of us!

I think everyone is super excited for the new dentist!
