Hungry Howie’s Pizza is expanding its national presence with its first restaurant in the state of New York in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City. Hungry Howie’s Pizza, the originator of the original flavored crust pizza, bakes dough fresh daily, and offers eight famous crust flavors including: butter, butter cheese, cajun, garlic herb, onion, ranch, sesame, and asiago cheese.

 

To commemorate the brand entering this new market, Hungry Howie’s Pizza will be making a donation to the Boy Scouts of America Greater New York Council, an organization that teaches young boys to be great leaders in their communities. Additionally, they will be offering one customer free pizza for a year.

 

Prior to opening Hungry Howie’s Pizza, franchisee Phillip Cotto spent years working in both commercial and residential real estate. He discovered Hungry Howie’s Pizza while on a road trip, and after extensive research speaking with various franchisees and their employees, he signed an area development agreement, and has plans to open multiple stores in the greater New York City area.

 

“I am ecstatic to be opening the first Hungry Howie’s Pizza restaurant in New York,” says franchisee Phillip Cotto. “It is important to give back to the community, so I am honored to be making a donation to the Boy Scouts of America Greater New York Council. I look forward to growing the Hungry Howie’s Pizza brand throughout the great state and providing residents with exceptional service and fresh, delicious pizza.

 

“Opening our first New York location is an incredible milestone for the Hungry Howie’s Pizza brand,” says Jennifer Jackson, director of development at Hungry Howie’s Pizza. “We are certain that this location will be a great success, and look forward to expanding Hungry Howie’s Pizza throughout the entire tri-state area.”

 

Hungry Howie’s Pizza is located at 691 Co-Op City Blvd., Bronx, New York, 10472. Hours of operation are Sunday through Wednesday 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and Thursday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
