Hungry Howie’s Pizza reopens second restaurant in Greensboro

By Mandy Wolf Detwiler

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich.  (September 17, 2014) – Hungry Howie’s Pizza, the originator of the flavored crust pizza, continues its growth in North Carolina with the reopening of its second restaurant in Greensboro. Known for baking its dough fresh daily Hungry Howie’s Pizza also offers an array of eight delicious crust flavors including: cajun, butter, butter cheese, sesame, onion, garlic herb, ranch and Asiago cheese.

This will be the 15th Hungry Howie’s Pizza location for brothers Mike, James and Steven Peterson as well as business partner Alison Nelson. The partners recently reopened Hungry Howie’s Pizza’s first Greensboro location in July. The three brothers began their careers with Hungry Howie’s Pizza as teenagers working at the store level. They fell in love with the brand’s business model, franchisee support system and fresh product; which led them to open their first restaurant in 1984. Currently, the Peterson brothers and Alison have plans to open 20 Hungry Howie’s Pizza units across the Carolinas.

To commemorate Hungry Howie’s Pizza’s newest location, the brand will be making donations to local Greensboro organizations that give back to the community and support local residents. The chosen charities are Habitat for Humanity and Pretty in Pink Foundation.

“We are proud to be expanding Hungry Howie’s Pizza’s presence in Greensboro with our second restaurant in the city,” said franchisee Mike Peterson. “We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from our first Hungry Howie’s Pizza location in the community, and we look forward to providing even more Greensboro residents with the fresh pizza and unparalleled service that Hungry Howie’s Pizza is known for.”

“We are elated to have the Peterson brothers and Alison opening their 15th Hungry Howie’s Pizza location in Greensboro,” said Jennifer Jackson, director of development at Hungry Howie’s Pizza. “They operate their restaurants exceptionally, and we look forward to their continued success in the Carolinas.”

Hungry Howie’s Pizza is located at 5710 High Point Rd., Greensboro, NC 27407.
