Bio
In 1973, James Hearn converted a 1,000-square-foot hamburger shop in Taylor, Michigan, into a carry-out and delivery pizzeria called Hungry Howie's. Steven Jackson, currently president of Hungry Howie's, began his career delivering pizza for Hearn. In 1976, he approached Hearn about becoming partners and opening a second Hungry Howie's location in Southgate, Michigan. The partners awarded their first Hungry Howie's franchise in Auburn Hills, Michigan, in 1983. The company offers Flavored Crust pizzas in eight varieties, oven-baked calzones, chicken wings, bread and salads.
