The only Hungry Howie’s pizza joint in Cobb has opened

If you like new things, pizza, pets and children then there’s some news for you.

Cobb County now has a Hungry Howie’s, and part of the proceeds from the first couple days will go to charity.

The pizza chain opened Wednesday at 4000 Frey Road NW, according to spokeswoman. That’s less than a mile from Kennesaw State University.

There are only a handful in metro Atlanta, and the company’s website shows that this is now the only one in Cobb. 

The store is owned by two sisters who delivered Hungry Howie’s pizzas while attending the University of Florida, the spokeswoman said. One of them was living in Kennesaw, and the other moved here to open the business.

Tahim said 10 percent of sales from Wednesday will go to Mostly Mutts, a Kennesaw animal rescue. And 10 percent of sales Thursday will go to SafePath, a Marietta children’s advocacy center.

The company started selling pizza — its shtick was flavored crust — inside a burger spot in Michigan in 1973. It now has about 550 locations in 21 states, according to its website.
