Hungry Howie's Pizza Opens First Location In Little Rock
National Pizza Franchise Expands With First Arkansas Location
June 11, 2019 // Franchising.com // LITTLE ROCK, AR - Hungry Howie's Pizza, the originator of the Flavored Crust® pizza, is opening its first Arkansas location in Little Rock. Opening its doors on June 12, pizza lovers can rejoice with its unbeatable grand opening special of a $7.99 large two-topping pizza for in-store, online, carry out and delivery orders. As part of Hungry Howie's commitment to giving back to the communities it serves, the new location will donate a percentage of sales to the Easter Seals of Arkansas and Fulbright Elementary School on June 12 and 13, respectively.
The Little Rock location marks the first of 5 Hungry Howie's restaurants for franchisee Zac Deem, who signed a multi-unit agreement to develop the concept throughout “The Natural State” in 2018. Previously, Deem served as the Director of Financial Planning for a Fortune 500 telecommunications company. However, he developed a passion for the pizza industry in 2006, while attending college at the University of Central Arkansas - where he worked as an Assistant Manager for a local pizzeria. When the time was right to accomplish his dream of becoming a business owner, he ultimately selected Hungry Howie's for their quality, delicious product and the passion of the brand's corporate team.
Currently, Deem has plans to open 2 additional locations within Little Rock city limits, as well as 1 in North Little Rock and an additional restaurant in Conway.
“It is an honor to introduce the Little Rock community to Hungry Howie's and its delicious Flavored Crust Pizza,” said franchisee Zac Deem. “I first tried the product in 2012 when I was visiting a friend in Florida, and as someone who has a passion for pizza, being exposed to this new brand that didn't exist in Arkansas was exciting. Needless to say I was hooked and knew I'd find a way to bring Hungry Howie's to the Little Rock community.”
“Arkansas has been on Hungry Howie's road map for quite some time, and are pleased to welcome Zac into the Hungry Howie's family. His passion for our brand and the pizza industry as a whole make him the ideal partner,” said Jennifer Jackson, VP of Development at Hungry Howie's. “We look forward to seeing his success and growing our fan base throughout this wonderful state.”
Hungry Howie's is located at 10300 North Rodney Parham Road Little Rock, AR 72227, near I-430. For more information on Hungry Howie's please call 501-500-9595 or visit www.hungryhowies.com.
