We opened our first restaurant in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1949, and are still a family-owned business serving communities in Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa and South Dakota. Keeping it close to home ensures each Runza® Restaurant receives hands-on support from headquarters, and each Runza® meal is made with the same commitment to quality.

Owning a Runza® Restaurant isn't just about serving food - it's about being actively involved in your store and your community. Our Franchisees are city council members, mayors, school board members, non-profit board members, and much more. We don't just talk about the importance of community. We are truly active in our communities!

Not only are our Franchisees and team members active in the community, but we also expect our Franchisees to be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of their Runza® franchise. Successful operation of a Runza® franchise requires your full attention. We will only consider candidates fully committed to Runza® as their career. Furthermore, we prioritize candidates with recent foodservice experience.
