Hungry Howies Pizza, the originator of the flavored crust pizza coninutes its growth in North Carolina with the re-opening of the state’s 14th Hungry Howie’s Pizza location in Greensboro. The pizza franchise makes its dough fresh daily, and offers a mouthwatering array of eight famous crust flavors including; butter, butter cheese, cajun, garlic herb, ranch, onion, sesame, and asiago cheese.

Although the Greensboro location will be brothers Mike, James and Steven Peterson in addition to business partner Alison Nelson’s 14th Hungry Howie’s Pizza restaurant, it will be their first location outside the state of Michigan. The three brothers began their career with Hungry Howie’s Pizza as teenagers working at the store level and became so captivated by the concept’s business plan, fresh product and support system, that they opened their first restaurant in 1984, with Alison joining them shortly after. The recent decision to expand their business into North Carolina stemmed from the large opportunity for growth a newer market for the concept. They have plans to open 20 additional units across North Carolina and South Carolina.

To commemorate Hungry Howie’s Pizza’s newest restaurant, the brand will be making a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as well as Partners in Ending Homelessness, local Greensboro organizations that benefits a great number of people. Furthermore, one customer will have the opportunity to win free pizza for a year.

“We are elated to be expanding our business outside of Michigan and opening our first Hungry Howie’s Pizza restaurant in North Carolina,” said franchisee Mike Peterson. “The economy in this community is booming and we look forward to offering Greensboro the delicious pizza and unmatched customer service that Hungry Howie’s Pizza provides to its guests.”

“We are thrilled to have the Peterson brothers and Alison opening their 14th Hungry Howie’s Pizza location,” said Jennifer Jackson, director of development at Hungry Howie’s Pizza. “They have an incredible passion for the Hungry Howie’s Pizza brand and we look forward to seeing their business continue to grow and thrive in North Carolina.”
