Hungry Howie’s Pizza Named 2012 Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs Magazine

Hungry Howie’s Pizza has been ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs magazine.

The pizza company currently has two veteran-owned franchises and honors military veterans all year round by offering service members a $10,000 discount—which is 50 percent—off the first franchise fee, allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.

“We have a strong veteran presence at Hungry Howie’s Pizza,” said Brian Ognian, vice president of franchise development. “Besides our two veteran franchisees, one of our directors is also a veteran of the National Guard. Veterans make excellent franchise owners and we are always looking to add them to our system.”

Director for G.I. Jobs Sean Collins said: “The Military Friendly Franchiseslist was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin. Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Hungry Howie’s Pizza in this elite group, and is testimony to Hungry Howie’s world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities.”

Founded in 1973, Michigan-based Hungry Howie’s Pizza has more than 500 locations in 24 states. Hungry Howie’s is the originator of the Flavored Crust Pizza and one of the nation’s largest pizza franchises.
