Opening a Hungry Howie's Franchise: A Career That Feeds Your Soul in Work AND in Life

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

So many people are aspiring entrepreneurs, but there's hardly enough time and effort to waste on options that aren't solid. What IS solid? The Hungry Howie's pizza franchise, with nearly 50 years of experience and more than 525 locations in 21 states (and consistently growing!). 

But there's more to the recipe than that. You want your professional life to feed your soul, too – and Hungry Howie's does that, and then some. Here's how…

Discover the 5 benefits to Opening Your Own Hungry Howie's Franchise: 

1. Be Your Own Boss

Working parents have a lot to handle: Professional goals, parenting, relationships, family, friends, and self. So how can you have it all? By taking charge and becoming your own boss!

When you open your own Hungry Howie's franchise, you are the one calling the shots. You're the one making your schedule.  You're the one designing how you want to live your life. 

Being your own boss puts you more invested in the work you do, bringing higher motivation and morale to your work day. You're able to embrace your own workstyle, and set the tone for the environment you want to work in day after day. When you're making the decisions, you're empowered…and with empowerment comes greater success.

2. Work Flexibly

Do you have school commitments for your kids?  Do you need to be able to leave work at odd times to help out in the classroom, for a school play, or for extracurricular activities? That's hard to do in a typical 9-5 office job – but with a Hungry Howie's franchise, you'll have a say in how and when you want to work.

As a franchisee, you know what needs to get done – and by when – so you can get it done on your own timeline as long as you meet the deadline. 

There's no more being forced to sit at a desk during a work day, doing nothing productive, simply because you need to punch the clock at certain times. You'll put in the hard work when it needs to be done, and you'll be happy to because you can see it's directly fulfilling your goals. On your terms. 

3. Leave a Lasting Legacy

As parents, we want to be able to provide a path for our kids to do more, learn more, and be more than we were. We want to gift them with a legacy they can carry on and be proud of. 

A Hungry Howie's franchise offers that opportunity – and we know all about leaving a lasting legacy…

Steve Jackson was there when Hungry Howie's began in 1973, as a delivery driver for the hamburger shop-turned delivery and carryout pizzeria in the Detroit suburbs. Now he's the President/CEO of Hungry Howie's – and there are more than 525 locations in 21 states (and it's still growing!). 

And the legacy part? His daughter, Jennifer, became part of Hungry Howie's by age 10, before becoming an official employee in 1998.  We know a thing or two about creating a family business that can grow with future generations. 

Now, it's your turn to create a legacy for your family!

4. Create Financial Stability

Now, perhaps more than ever, we want to be confident that we have financial stability – no matter what the world brings. We're pretty confident that pizza will always be around, and Hungry Howie's Flavored Crust® pizzas put us in a uniquely popular position. 

Pizza is the fastest-growing segment of the food service industry, and Hungry Howie's has consistently ranked at the top of the pizza franchise pack. Our focus is on making sure our franchisees are fully equipped to capitalize on the growing market. 

Hungry Howie's is committed to helping you with your financial stability and success after you open a franchise. We focus on store profitability, with competitive costs that give our franchisees the opportunity to make money, and we have a proven franchise system that works. 

Having more than 45 years of experience will do that.

5. Live your Life with More Purpose

Many of us are in endeavors that we like, and maybe we even love. They serve a purpose – to bring us income and keep us in the professional world – but do they really fulfill your personal purpose? 

When you don't know WHY you're doing something, you're not going to put forth your truest effort into it – even if you think you are. 

At Hungry Howie's, we provide you the opportunity to enrich your life – and to enrich your community. Besides offering amazing products, we believe our franchisees should be part of the communities they service and help make a difference – and we find our franchisees want to.

That's why we're focused on supporting neighborhood schools in various ways (like our fundraisers), community outreach, supporting nationally-recognized charities, and more. 

Have you seen our Love, Hope & Pizza campaign with the pink ribbons on our boxes? Hungry Howie's has supported the National Breast Cancer Foundation® with that campaign since 2009 – and we've raised more than $2.5 million for the cause because of it.

While owning your own Hungry Howie's franchise, you'll be fully immersed in ways to help your community and give back. Fulfilling stomachs…and your purpose.
