The amazing people of our home state made MacKenzie River Pizza Co.'s 20th anniversary celebration a huge success. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Here's to another 20 years in the Last Best Place.
To celebrate our 20th anniversary, the staff at each of our restaurants nominated a local non-profit, and guests voted in stores and online to give their favorite organization from the list below a bigger piece of a $20,000 pie.
The First MacKenzie River Pizza Co. opened in downtown Bozeman, Montana in 1993. Initially unfamiliar with truly gourmet pizza, Montanans were hesitant of toppings like toasted pine nuts and mandarin oranges. Soon though, our customers craved the entire MacKenzie River experience-including our distinctive flavors, unique atmosphere and unparalleled customer service. Today, MacKenzie River serves up creative, high quality food and has developed a notable menu that offers choices far beyond just pizza. As we venture into new neighborhoods, we strive to remain passionate about serving others sincerely and well… so sit back, relax and enjoy your experience.
