The new Midway Park Hungry Howie’s will be the second Jacksonville area franchise location for the Cross family - Dale, his wife Debbie, and two sons Matthew and Daniel.

With flavored crusts options such as butter, asiago cheese, Cajun, garlic herb, ranch, and many more there are plenty of options for Camp Lejeune/Camp Johnson and Midway Park pizza lovers to choose from.
“I’ve always loved the food industry, pizza in particular, and working with Hungry Howie’s has been an amazing fit for our family. We are really hoping to expand our community involvement, especially with Camp Lejeune and Camp Johnson,” said franchisee, Daniel Cross. “Our dedicated staff in Jacksonville is amazing, and we are eager to continue working together in nearby Midway Park.”
