From 1996 in Detroit, Michigan, Happy’s Pizza has each year expanded to become a brand well known especially in Michigan and now beyond in various locations. Michigan features the highest number of stores with a recent 100th franchise location opening in Detroit, making the total number there at least 60 and counting each year as the brand expands.
Rapid growth since 2008 has boosted the expansion of Happy’s across the U.S. with locations soon to open in Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Arizona, to name a few, while stores are already standing in six states. From all the way to the west coast in California and Nevada, the greatest number of stores in operation outside of Michigan stand in Ohio throughout various city areas.
The expansion of the brand can no doubt be linked to the simplicity of its presentation, positive atmosphere, and variety of selection for nearly any choosy eater. With a number of regional favorites and traditional foods like Polish boy hot links, Chicago dogs, and BBQ ribs and chicken wings as well as one of the most well loved meals throughout the U.S., pizza and a variety of topping choices, this fast expanding franchise delivers meals that please customers looking for variety. An assortment of seafood options also makes Happy’s menu appealing, separating it from the crowd of pizza restaurants.
With three to four months of training for new franchise owners, Happy’s Pizza guides each investor with daily operation and quality control training so that each location delivers the best possible experience to customers. The consistency of the brand, from the appearance of actual locations, to menu offerings, makes this franchise an exceptional way for new owners to distinguish themselves while receiving exceptional support and a growing social media presence.
Each year the brand expands in a big way, with over 20 stores annually added to the U.S. wide franchise system from 2008, including franchise owners from a variety of backgrounds and previous careers. As the brand continues to grow, priority focus is set on ensuring franchisee success with prime location research and customer satisfaction with an unbeatable menu selection.
