Hungry Howie’s Pizza, one of the nation’s largest pizza franchises with over 500 locations in 24 states, is taking online ordering to the next level by offering customers the ability to place orders through their iPhone devices.
Using the iPhone app, customers can find Hungry Howie’s Pizza locations via the phone GPS and get directions with one touch. This allows complete functionality of the program to be in the hands of the consumer, including past orders, favorites, and specials.
Customers who have placed orders through the chain’s website are now able to login to the iPhone app using the same login credentials. Upon login, customers can pull up past orders, repeat orders placed on their desktops, or simply start a new order. Favorite and past orders can be placed in just seconds and is synchronized immediately with the guest’s online profile.
Hungry Howie’s achieved this application through a partnership with ONOSYS Online Ordering.
“Our new iPhone app allows people to order from us immediately—even when they’re not in front of a computer,” Al Newman, Hungry Howie’s Pizza director of training, says. “After seeing the success of our online ordering, we wanted to implement other methods to boost sales and offer our customers even more convenience and control over the ordering experience. The iPhone app is also a great way of communicating with our guests.”
“Our team is very excited about the Hungry Howie’s Pizza iPhone app,” says Stan Garber, partner at ONOSYS. “There is a growing demand for Web-based applications to be accessible via mobile devices. Hungry Howie’s Pizza has seen their online ordering sales double in the last 12 months so we are anticipating a strong adoption rate for their iPhone App.”
