Our customers are flavor enthusiasts. Hungry Howie’s differentiates itself from corporate pizza chains with a menu brimming with flavor and dough prepared fresh everyday at every location. Our family of independently owned and operated franchises are managed by local residents and workers. Adding a Flavored Crust® to your original round, deep dish, thin crust, or gluten-free crust provides affordable flavor to your table. Try our eight complimentary Flavored Crust® selections, including Butter, Asiago Cheese, Cajun, Butter Cheese, Sesame, Garlic Herb, Ranch, and Onion, and don’t forget about our Featured Flavored Crust®. We can’t survive on pizza alone. Hence, Hungry Howie’s provides a wide variety of calzone-style oven-baked subs, Howie Bread®, fresh salads, Howie Wings®, Howie Rolls®, desserts, and Pepsi® goods.

Everything we do at Hungry Howie’s centers around our central mission, which is to give individuals the chance to enrich their lives and communities. We accomplish this by maintaining our key values:

Treat everyone like family

  • Have integrity
  • Do what you say
  • Be hungry for growth
  • Have positive energy

During the month of October, we color our pizza boxes pink for our Love, Hope, and Pizza campaign. We have raised more than $2.5 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation® in collaboration with our consumers and franchisees. Here you can learn more about Love, Hope & Pizza.

Our History

In 1973, The Hungry Howie’s founder, Jim Hearn, converted a 1,000-square-foot hamburger restaurant in Taylor, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit) into a popular carry-out and delivery pizzeria. Hearn was delivered pizzas by Steve Jackson. Later, the two teamed to expand and transform Hungry Howie’s into the brand it is today.

Jackson and Hearn received their first Hungry Howie’s franchise in 1983. Within three years, Hungry Howie’s opened sixty-five franchisees, and by the end of the 1980s, we had over one hundred and sixty units. Our 300th location launched in 1995, our 400th in 1999, and our 500th in 2005. In 2004, Pizza Today magazine recognised Hungry Howie’s as “Chain of the Year.” Consistently ranked among the nation’s leading pizza chains, this brand has developed as a formidable rival in the pizza industry.

When we developed and tested Flavored Crust® pizza regionally in 1983 and brought it out nationally in 1985, Hungry Howie’s was irrevocably altered. We invented the Flavored Crust® pizza by introducing an intriguing new dimension to one of America’s most beloved dishes.

How can a single-store pizza operation become a successful multi-unit competitor in the pizza delivery industry? Steve Jackson states, “To succeed in one of the most competitive food markets, you must have a strong passion.” Our strategy consists mostly of exceptional products, superior customer service, and marketing expertise to compete with national pizza chains.
