Hungry Howie's Serves Up Bold Incentives to Fuel Strategic Growth
Hungry Howie’s is making it easy and more lucrative than ever for entrepreneurs to take a bite out of the $46 billion pizza industry.
With roughly 535 U.S. restaurants in 21 states and growing, Michigan-based Hungry Howie’s is jumpstarting rapid multi-unit growth into new and existing markets with a bold incentive program.
The Strategic Growth Partner franchise incentive program is a bold first for the legacy brand. It paves the way for multi-unit franchise owners to enjoy up to $150,000 in free royalties for three or more locations. Hungry Howie’s Steve Clough says there is no better time to be a franchisee as sales and profits have never been stronger.
“I believe Hungry Howie’s is the best-kept secret in pizza, and there are tremendous franchise growth opportunities with our brand,” says Clough, director of Franchise Development at Hungry Howie’s. “This is the first time in the brand’s history that we have introduced a program this aggressive. We’ll be looking to partner with multi-unit operators who have a passion for the brand, strong business acumen, and proven restaurant industry or franchising experience.”
Since its humble beginnings in 1973 as a hamburger stand turned takeout and delivery pizzeria in the Detroit suburb of Taylor, Hungry Howie’s has become a top pizza franchise.
Clough, who spent over a decade with Domino’s before joining Hungry Howie’s in 2021, is building on the momentum of stellar sales to oversee aggressive growth strategies in key markets. In 2021, the top 25 percent of franchised stores averaged $1,296,358 million in AUV, and the top 50 percent averaged $1,099,570.
There’s interest in Texas, across the South and East Coast, and up the I-75 corridor, which runs through Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan. Hungry Howie’s would also be open to development further west. According to the chain’s website, California and Washington are closed markets, but states like Nevada, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona are open for single or multi-unit franchisees.
Hungry Howie’s has continuously been recognized as one of the nation's top pizza chains. As the originators of the Flavored Crust Pizza, Howie’s has developed a strong and loyal customer base and proven success in a business model that offers:
- Significantly less investment per square foot than comparable brands?
- Strong sales to investment ratios?
- Delivery as a core competency to take advantage of the seismic shift in demand for delivered food
Franchisees can count on comprehensive training, support, and tech-driven tools to drive sales. Hungry Howie’s has a state-of-the-art online ordering system, an innovative customer loyalty program, real-time access to store-level data through mobile business management tools, and turnkey local market planning and execution.
