Our History

The Hungry Howie’s story began in 1973 when founder Jim Hearn converted a 1,000 square foot hamburger shop in Taylor, Michigan into a successful carry-out and delivery pizzeria. Steve Jackson started off by delivering pizzas for Jim at this location, but soon after, Jim and Steve partnered up to expand Hungry Howie’s and turn it into the brand it is today. By 1983, Jackson and Hearn awarded their first Hungry Howie’s franchise. But the direction of Hungry Howie’s changed forever in 1985 when it was the first to rollout Flavored Crust® pizza.  Now with over 500 locations in 22 states, Hungry Howie’s has become one of the country’s leading pizza brands.


In 1986 Jackson and Hearn founded a separate company called Hungry Howie’s Distributing, Inc.  The goal of Hungry Howie’s Distributing was simple. Deliver the best quality wholesale ingredients and provide first class service to our Hungry Howie’s stores so that they could focus on providing retail customers a great pizza at a fair price.
