Hungry Howie’s Pizza, originator of the Flavored Crust pizza, announces continued same-store sales growth for 24 consecutive quarters, in addition to achieving over $342 million in sales for 2015. The chain’s recent rebranding and focus on customer engagement continue to make Hungry Howie’s a top choice for pizza nationwide.
The brand, which is famous for its flavored crusts such as Cajun, garlic herb, butter, and Asiago cheese, continues on its positive growth trajectory, increasing system-wide sales by over $45 million in the past two years. To drive its long-term success, Hungry Howie’s recently underwent a strategic marketing endeavor, with the introduction of a new store design, which include contemporary interiors, clean lines, and modern materials to remain an inviting place for guests to come in for pizza. In addition to the in-store changes, Hungry Howie’s streamlined its digital platform through a new online ordering process, which has increased ticket sales by 30 percent, providing a clear user interface across the system. The brand revamp, coupled with the online overhaul, have encouraged loyal fans and new customers to enjoy Hungry Howie’s Pizza by visiting or ordering from any of the brand’s almost 600 locations.
“Since Hungry Howie’s was founded in 1973, we have worked tirelessly to provide a positive experience for our guests and a profitable business model for our franchisees,” says Steve Jackson, CEO of Hungry Howie’s. “We are confident our continued focus on a high quality product and easy ordering process will ensure our restaurants see additional quarters of same-store sales growth and an overall system-wide sales increase for 2016.”
