At Hungry Howie’s, we provide people the opportunity to enrich their lives and their community. Our franchisees are an integral part of the communities they serve. Whether it is supporting a nationally recognized charity or the elementary school down the street, our franchisees give back.
Since 2009, Hungry Howie’s has supported the National Breast Cancer Foundation® through our Love, Hope & Pizza campaign. Together we’ve raised over $3.5 million for this deserving cause.
