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 HotStuff Pizza brand was born. The first licensed Hot Stuff location opened in Webster, SD, on December 17, 1986,and today there are more than 1,100 Hot Stuff Pizza franchises and licenses operating in the United States, with dozens of others in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Orion is currently searching for Production Supervisor to join our growing team!
