Hungry Howie's Delivers Incentives to Spur Rapid Franchise Growth

Hungry Howie's Pizza, known as the originator of the Flavored Crust Pizza®, has hit the ground running in 2022 with an aggressive national franchise growth strategy offering bold incentives for new franchise partners looking to expand with a leading brand in the $46 billion pizza industry. 

Recognized as one of the nation’s top pizza chains, Michigan-based Hungry Howie’s is offering investors up to $150,000 in free royalties for three or more locations as part of its brand-new Strategic Growth Partner franchise incentive program. The limited-time offer is designed for multi-unit operators who are looking to expand their portfolio in a proven system with tremendous growth potential in the dynamic quick-service pizza sector. To qualify for the program, new franchisees must enter into a multi-unit development agreement to develop, own and operate at least three Hungry Howie’s locations within 24 months. Subsequently, each store would be eligible for up to $50k per store in free royalties. See for program terms and conditions.

“Sales and profits have been stronger than ever at Hungry Howie’s and the brand is primed for rapid franchise expansion,” says Steve Clough, Hungry Howie's Director of Franchise Development. “This is the first time in our brand’s history that we have ever introduced a program this aggressive. I believe the combination of this strategic growth partner incentive along with a proven business model will be very attractive for multi-unit and multi-concept operators interested in expanding their portfolio.”  

Clough also noted, “Hungry Howie’s may be the best-kept secret in pizza with a huge upside for growth - there is no better time to join.”

Same-store sales have soared at Hungry Howie’s and its proven performance is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity. An integral part of Hungry Howie’s success is its technology platform as consumers become more reliant on online ordering during the pandemic. The national pizza franchise is also backed by a strong leadership team, robust unit economics, and an innovative mindset. With all the slices of the pie in place, top it with aggressive growth strategies, Hungry Howie’s makes for an attractive investment for multi-unit ownership and is ready to expand its national footprint. 

 “Hungry Howie’s has been a leader in the QSR/pizza space in Michigan for nearly 50 years and is one of the most recognizable pizza chains in the state. We’re well primed for an impressive growth trajectory in both established and emerging markets,” says Steve Jackson, CEO and President of Hungry Howie's Pizza. “With Steve Clough leading our franchise development efforts, his knowledge and experience from one of our largest and most respected pizza competitors will enable us to take advantage of the growth and partnership opportunities as we continue to scale nationwide. We’re looking forward to expanding our brand with this momentum on our side.”

With more than 535 stores in 21 states, Clough is eager to accelerate the brand’s growth with a new generation of franchisees. Using sophisticated modeling tools to identify the best build-out opportunities within the market, the goal has been set to sign at least 10 more franchisees in 2022 and grow by 10% in 2022.
