Runza® Restaurants to Host Statewide TeamMates Day


On Tuesday, April 8th Runza®Restaurants across Nebraska and Iowa will be donating 10% of all proceeds to the TeamMates Mentoring Program.  The effort is part of Runza’s belief that it takes more than food to serve a community. 

Runza® Restaurants is proud to take an active role in each and every community we serve.  More than a responsibility, it’s our privilege to positively impact the lives of our neighbors,” said Becky Perrett, Director of Marketing at Runza® National.

Seventy-six Runza® locations will be participating in TeamMates Day.  “We are so grateful to Runza® for supporting our local chapters across Nebraska and Iowa.  TeamMates and Runza® are two organizations founded in Nebraska and we are honored to be able to partner together to support our youth,” said Suzanne Hince, Executive Director of the TeamMates Mentoring Program. 

Founded in 1949, Runza® Restaurants is famous for the Runza® Sandwich with its delicious blend of ground beef, cabbage, onions and secret spices baked inside homemade bread; made-to-order hamburgers; and homemade onion rings. For more information, visit
