From its humble beginnings in Taylor, MI, we have has grown to almost 600 locations in 24 states in the United States.

Our goal is to live with integrity to enrich the families of our partners and the communities we serve for greater success in business, and in life.


Look no further than our famous flavored crust to see why Hungry Howie's pizza has an EDGE over its competition. Mouth watering seasonings are baked into the edge of our pizzas making the last bite of a Hungry Howie's pizza just as good as the first. Baked subs, 4 different breads, chicken, and salads are the perfect accompaniments to our "crustomized" pizzas. Others have tried to copy it, but Hungry Howie's is the true home of the Original Flavored Crust.
