America has to be the coolest place in the world. Some people scoff at the “American Dream,” while others use the “Land of Opportunity” to take the opportunity to create their dreams. Hungry Howie’s is one of those American dreams that has become a reality by making some of the best pizza pies in the country.

Born in 1973, Hungry Howie’s started out as one store. It now has over 600 and growing. From 1982 until today, Hungry Howie’s has made tremendous growth. Within the first three years of creating their franchising system, Hungry Howie’s had 65 franchises. By the end of the ’80s, they had 160 franchises.

Today they are ranked as one of the largest pizza companies in the restaurant industry. Their secret is a great product that they called Flavored Pizza, which is a specialty crust that keeps their customers coming back for more. You know you’ve got a winner when there’s a Bacon Cheeseburger pizza on the menu. Plus, when you add excellent customer service and marketing to the mix, you get success.

Hungry Howie’s is a hit in the stomachs and hearts of many American families. It’s truly an “American Dream.” I guess that’s the secret to creating a billion-dollar empire built on specialty crusts, mozzarella, tomato sauce, and beef.
