The original Hungry Howie’s opened their doors to the folks of Taylor, Michigan back in 1973. They quickly became the go-to spot for local teenagers, who spent their evenings hanging out in booths socializing and sharing tasty pizza pies. Within ten years, the owners set out to franchise their local hotspot, and one of the top pizza chains in the nation was born. Now, Hungry Howie’s can be found in 20 states throughout the nation. Hungry Howie’s not-so-secret ingredient is their variety of flavored crusts. They sell traditional pizza house fare, like pizzas and calzones, but they also have extras like fresh salads, wings, bread sticks (known as Howie Bread) and more.
