The Hungry Howies story began in 1973 when Jim Hearn converted a 1,000 square foot hamburger shop in Taylor, Michigan into a successful carry-out and delivery pizzeria. At the time, Steve Jackson delivered pizzas for Hearn. Over the years, their partnership would evolve into what Hungry Howies is today. We have combined the right pizza ingredients and years of successful experience to create a superb, growth-oriented business operation. Our delicious, high-quality Flavored Crust pizzas, calzone-style subs, and salads uniquely position Hungry Howies in the pizza marketplace, allowing us to fully capitalize on the fastest growing segment of the food service industry. Through Jacksons and Hearns leadership, the brand has emerged as a major competitor in the pizza marketplace and consistently ranks in the top 10 of the nations largest pizza franchises. Currently, Hungry Howies operates over 550 locations in 21 states.
