In 1983, Orion was founded with a vision of providing restaurant-quality food to the on-the-go consumer. At that time, home pizza delivery competition was growing at a rapid rate, but there was no real focus on the consumer who desired that same quality food away from home.

We worked hard to make the original vision a reality, and in 1986 the Hot Stuff Pizza brand was born.  Orion Food Systems currently has franchises in 39 states, the District of Columbia and on U.S. military bases in seven foreign countries.

Orion is currently searching for Quality Assurance Technician to join our growing team!
