Iowa-based Pizza Ranch has announced a one-year partnership with the Minnesota Twins for the 2012 baseball season.
As a part of the partnership, each of Pizza Ranch's 45 restaurants throughout Minnesota will be giving away tickets to three Minnesota Twins baseball games this season through a register-to-win in-store promotion. Pizza Ranch will give away a total of 324 tickets this season. Other specific initiatives and programs will be announced as they are finalized.
"Just like Pizza Ranch, the Minnesota Twins are deeply rooted in the local community, making this a homerun partnership for the brand," said Cody Vance Pierce, vice president of marketing for Pizza Ranch. "Pizza Ranch is more than just a great place to eat; it is a community gathering place for families and a social hub for friends. Since we opened our first restaurant in Minnesota more than 20 years ago, we have maintained a relentless commitment to the community through neighborhood partnerships and ongoing philanthropy."
The Minnesota Twins partnership extends Pizza Ranch's efforts to be actively involved in each of the communities served by its more than 160 franchised restaurants in nine states.
