Runza Restaurant Coming To Glenwood; Spring Opening Planned

Sign on South Locust Street in Glenwood announcing the future opening of a Runza restaurant.

What’s been rumored for months is coming to fruition.

Glenwood is getting a Runza restaurant.

The Lincoln, Neb.-based regional restaurant chain has confirmed it will open its 89th location in Glenwood. A Runza "Coming Soon" sign has been posted on a property that sits adjacent to the Pizza Hut building on the 700 block of South Locust Street.

“We are proud to expand our store network and excited to bring a Runza restaurant to the area,” stated Donald Everett, Jr., president of Runza National.

Runza franchisees Ethan Hall and Scott Fredericksen plan to open the Glenwood store next spring, according to Runza Director of Marketing Becky Perrett. Fredericksen also owns the Runza Restaurant location in Plattsmouth, while Hall partially owns the 171st and West Maple St. store in Omaha and the two share ownership of the Clarinda restaurant location.

“Glenwood is a thriving community and we are pleased to be part of the growth,” said Fredericksen.

Hall echoed Fredericksen's thoughts.

“Glenwood is a great town and we are excited to serve the community,” he said.

The first Runza restaurant was opened in 1949. Known for its signature stuffed beef and cabbage sandwiches, Runza’s menu includes burgers, chicken sandwiches and strips, salads, fries and onion rings. The restaurant currently has locations in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.
