“We are thrilled to share a piece of the Hungry Howie’s pie with the Owosso community,” said business partner Timothy Last. “Like the Peterson brothers, I started working with the brand at the store-level and quickly became passionate about the Hungry Howie’s business. We look forward to spreading Hungry Howie’s cheesy goodness throughout the community and helping others fall in love with the brand as much as we did.”
“We are very lucky to have the Petersons as a part of the Hungry Howie’s family,” said Jennifer Jackson, Vice President of Development at Hungry Howie's. “As someone who has also worked their way up at Hungry Howie’s Pizza, their passion for the brand and their commitment to growth is inspiring and admirable. We look forward to seeing their business continue to thrive and succeed.”
