April 10, 2018 – West Bend, WI – There’s quite a bit of development underway across West Bend and Washington County.
Aside from the buzz about the possibility of a new Fleet Farm in West Bend, the sale of the old TriPar building on Highway 33, construction of Morrie’s West Bend Honda, and development of a new Kwik Trip in West Bend and Casey’s General Store in Hartford the hottest topic remains Pizza Ranch, 2020 W. Washington Street, in West Bend.
Owner Stacy Gehring provided a walk through of the interior which features signage, the buffet line, soda machines and freshly-painted dining areas.
A couple of updates were submitted by Pizza Ranch owners Matt and Stacy Gehring:
-Pizza Ranch will not be granted a conditional occupancy permit until concrete and asphalt are put down. Contractors are hoping to start on concrete on Wednesday, April 11.
-Asphalt has to wait until plants open which will be April 16 pending weather. Once this is completed then we are allowed to get in and train staff.
-Training staff is a two-week process. Delivery drivers are still needed and a Pizza Ranch vehicle will be available for use.
-The city will not grant full occupancy to fully operate until the parking lot is sealed and striped. For this to happen we need overnight temperatures above 50 degrees.
-Landscaping does not have to be completed before we open. We cannot dictate Mother Nature but are as anxious as everyone else to bring Pizza Ranch to West Bend.
-We are tracking an early to mid-May opening but do not have a crystal ball on the weather.
