Hungry Howie's Pizza Commences 2018 With Development Deals In Washington And Utah
Pizza Franchise Signed Agreements in 2017 for 48 Locations and Prepares for Continued Expansion in the New Year
January 23, 2018 // Franchising.com // MADISON HEIGHTS, MI - Hungry Howie’s Pizza, the originator of the Flavored Crust® pizza, ended 2017 with 48 signed location agreements and is charging into 2018 with development deals in Utah and Washington, a new state for the brand. With over 550 units across 20 states, the brand has signed a 5-store multi-unit agreement in Washington and a 3-store multi-unit agreement in Utah. In 2018, Hungry Howie's will concentrate on rapid expansion nationwide, focusing on Nashville, TN, Houston, TX, Birmingham, AL, Montgomery AL, Raleigh, NC and Durham, NC.
Growing up a fan of the brand in Detroit, MI, Bill Tokar has signed an area development deal for a 3-store multi-unit agreement within the cities of Layton, Kaysville, Syracuse in Davis County in Utah. Bill has over 10 years of restaurant management experience with Arby’s, training franchisees, supervisors and restaurant managers to help improve operational processes and the overall guest experience. He is looking forward to partnering with his father to open three Hungry Howie’s locations in the Salt Lake City market.
Looking for a career change after owning a construction business for many years, Sadie and Michael Hill are relocating to Olympia, WA from Bakersfield, CA to open five Hungry Howie’s locations in the new state within the next three years. The husband and wife duo and their children initially fell in love with the pizza brand in Bakersfield after being introduced to Hungry Howie's in their hometown. While this is their first venture into the restaurant business and moving to a new state, the Hill's look forward to being restaurateurs and introducing Hungry Howie's Flavored Crust Pizza to the state of Washington.
“Last year was very exciting for Hungry Howie's while we focused on internal growth developing plans to expand into new states like Utah and Washington and we're excited to see it come to fruition in 2018,” said Steve Jackson, CEO of Hungry Howie’s. “We have confidence that Bill, Sadie and Michael will be successful in taking the lead in expanding our footprint into these new areas and growing our fan base and the love for our Flavored Crust pizzas.”
