A small South Dakota town heard some shocking news about a beloved pizza joint that will be closing its doors before the start of summer.

Pizza Ranch throughout the Sioux Empire is a great place to enjoy a meal with family. But one South Dakota Pizza Ranch announced they will be closing in May.

Pizza Ranch in Canton made the surprising closure announcement on its Facebook page on Monday. The last day for people to enjoy this Sioux Empire Pizza Ranch location will be on Friday, May 31st.

Staff at the Canton Pizza Ranch says patrons might notice some changes before they close its doors for good. Some hours might shift and there could be less staff working inside the Canton Pizza Ranch.

Pizza Ranch currently has 72 locations in Iowa, 44 eateries in Minnesota, and 20 in the state of South Dakota. After the Canton Pizza Ranch location closes on Friday, May 31st, there will be one less spot in town to grab a slice. Until then, this closure will affect numerous operations for Canton Pizza Ranch fans.

Pizza Ranch explains to Canton pizza lovers that they will "no longer offer daytime delivery Monday-Friday. Weekday delivery will now be 5 PM to 8 PM only."

It's never easy to see a local business struggle and make difficult decisions. However, it is nice to see the employees of the Pizza Ranch in Canton have enough time to find new employment opportunities throughout the Sioux Empire.

For any updates about the closing of the Canton Pizza Ranch, stay up to date with its Facebook page. They actively post new announcements.

Unfortunately, one pizza establishment on the list, Sioux Falls’ Zaroty closed its doors in the summer of 2020. So, I took the liberty of including one more Sioux Falls pizza place people really like!
