Hungry Howie's products are developed for the consumer, in direct response to consumer demands. That's a big advantage for your neighborhood-oriented business. Our "national" image provides the added touch of creditability and perceived value to enhance your opportunity for a significant share of the business in your local area, where it counts the most.

How will you support me if I'm the first Hungry Howie's owner in a new territory?
You'll be entitled to the same service and support programs available to other franchise owners.

You will have access to common materials and campaigns with which to conduct effective marketing efforts in your area.

Hungry Howie's has markets available nationwide, making their concept attractive to multi-unit operators. Hungry Howie's has developed the franchise with the philosophy of always maintaining conservative, manageable growth.
If Hungry Howie's grows at the planned rate, it would have the potential to threaten large, national chains, according to marketing strategist Al Ries, of Roswell, GA based Ries & Ries.
Bob Cuffaro, VP of Franchise Development states, "Our satisfied franchisees are our biggest selling point. The ultimate compliment is when a franchisee is selling for us through word of mouth. No hard sell at Hungry Howie's, if I have to convince you to sign, you should be doing something else." The development team believes they are not helping the company by awarding franchises to people not cut out for the business when they know the fit isn't right. The team is committed to the continuing growth and expansion of the franchise system with quality franchisees.

Branding itself as the home of the Original Flavored Crust pizza, the chain has made its mark by offering customers a choice of original, ranch, onion, garlic herb, sesame seed, buttered, butter cheese and cajun. That twist on the traditional pizza menu instantly sets Hungry Howie's apart from the look-alike pizza franchises, making it a good investment for prospective franchise owners. With over 575 locations in 24 states they have combined the right ingredients to create a competitive, growth-oriented operation. In 2004, Pizza Today Magazine named Hungry Howie's Pizza Chain of the Year.
