Hungry Howie’s Pizza & Subs, Inc. joins the fight against breast cancer this month with their “Love, Hope & Pizza” campaign. For every pizza purchased, Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

Hungry Howie’s raised more than a quarter of a million dollars each of the past two years and pledges a goal of at least $200,000.

Throughout the month at all participating locations, all pizzas will be served in bright pink boxes emblazoned with breast cancer awareness ribbons instead of the classic Hungry Howie’s yellow boxes the brand usually features. Customers can also add a $1 donation to their Hungry Howie’s order, which will go directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Donators will receive a pink Love, Hope & Pizza magnet as a token of appreciation.

Hungry Howie’s is also continuing the social media campaign that accompanies Love, Hope & Pizza. Throughout October, Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to the foundation for every new Facebook fan, for every breast cancer story fans share on the Hungry Howie’s Facebook page, and for every tweet using the hashtag #lovehopepizza. Hungry Howie’s will share tips on breast cancer prevention, support and information about the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Facebook. The Facebook page will also feature an online video series with personal stories of how breast cancer has affected Hungry Howie’s.

The company is also selling T-shirts with their national message.

“Love, Hope & Pizza has become one of our best initiatives at Hungry Howie’s,” said Jeff Rinke, vice president of marketing. “We are honored to be able to raise money, support the National Breast Cancer Foundation and recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among U.S. women in 2011 and everyone knows someone that has been affected by breast cancer. Our customers have become great partners in our quest to help stop the spread of this disease.”

Hungry Howie’s Pizza is the originator of the Flavored Crust Pizza and one of the nation’s largest pizza franchises. With more than 500 locations in 24 states, Hungry Howie’s is ranked in the top 100 of Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 in 2009.
