Despite its rustic decor, Montanans didn’t quite know what to make of MacKenzie River Pizza Co. when it debuted in 1993, but were quick to embrace decidedly not-down-home pizza toppings such as zucchini, feta and jerk chicken. In 2007, Glacier Restaurant Group, led by former CKE CEO William Foley, bought a number of MacKenzie locations. Glacier’s units now are adopting an expanded menu with burgers, steak and pub food as well as a new name: MacKenzie River Pizza, Grill and Pub.
