Two new Pizza Ranch locations are looking at late fall openings.

The Papillion location, which we wrote about in April, is expected to open in November, area director for corporate locations Mark Tyner said.

“We were hoping for October, but the project got pushed back a little bit,” Tyner said.

The restaurant is now hiring about 110 people, about 60 percent of whom will be part-time.

Lincoln's first Pizza Ranch, on North 84th Street at 8420 Lexington Ave., will open in November or early December, general manager and owner Jess Meekma said. That location broke ground on June 17 and will employ about 90 people.
