This pizza buffet with great chicken would be perfect in Sedalia

As we left Mazzio to return to the studio after enjoying their buffet, the conversation turned to different pizzerias that offer a pizza buffet. I mentioned to Behka that I really miss Pizza Ranch, a pizza buffet that has great fried chicken, and I wish I had one. I was shocked when without wasting time she told me that Sedalia almost got a Pizza Ranch.

That was in 2016. At the time, Behka quoted Pizza Ranch’s Director of Franchise Development that they were specifically targeting expansion in Sedalia in an article on our websites.

What I really love about Pizza Ranch is the fried chicken. When I worked in Davenport, I went to their Bettendorf, Iowa location several times for the buffet. I found the pizza hot and tasty and on more than one occasion when I asked my co-workers to try the fried chicken, they raved about it. In fact, it was our go-to fried chicken spot while we lived there. It was a bit of a drive too. That’s how good it was, I was willing to drive about 20 minutes to get it.

So, what’s on the pizzeria buffet? These are awesome pizzas with a variety of crusts, sauces and toppings. Not to mention, if your favorite isn’t on the buffet, just ask them to make it and they’ll put one on the buffet for you. The fried chicken that I love is also on the buffet along with a variety of salads, mashed potatoes, potato wedges, vegetables and soup. Not to mention the desserts.

Do I think it would work in Sedalia or maybe Warrensburg? I think it would work in both cities, but I think it would be a slam dunk in Sedalia. Seems like the kind of place Sedalians would enjoy at lunchtime, or perhaps the place to take the family for an evening meal.

I’m kind of sad that we didn’t have Pizza Ranch in 2016. Although I have to hand it over to Mazzio, they do a really good job with their lunch buffet. Not to mention the Italian, Fazoili’s does a good job of offering budget slices of pizza and Italian food when you want to scratch that itch for lunch and dinner.

Just out of curiosity, I contacted Pizza Ranch to see if they still thought Sedalia would be a great location for one of their restaurants. A lot has happened since 2016, so who knows? It will be interesting to see if they respond, and what they say if they do. If I have an answer, I’ll let you know what the company says.

I can taste their chicken right now.
