Darrell Howell

Business Consultant
Darrell Howell began his career with notable achievements in the corporate sector, showcasing a blend of leadership and expertise. Seeking to broaden his horizons, he pursued higher education, obtaining his MBA focusing on accounting from Middle Tennessee State University in 2000. This academic pursuit reoriented his path back to the insurance industry, where he initiated a remarkable period of growth and innovation. Beyond the corporate realm, he was driven by a deep connection to family values and community service. This led him to engage more intimately with a family legacy: their Pizza Hut franchise, a community staple since 1978. He recognized the opportunity to integrate family life with community involvement and ventured into the restaurant industry. Under his guidance, the family's Pizza Hut business flourished. He masterfully expanded the franchise, reaching multiple states with numerous outlets. By 2003, he had shifted his focus entirely from insurance to the restaurant industry, and by 2015, he had become a key Pizza Hut franchisor in the region. In December 2015, he sold these restaurants in a strategic shift, transitioning again to the corporate world. Managing the growth of the Pizza Hut franchises posed unique challenges and learning opportunities. His background in the corporate sector laid a strong foundation, yet the restaurant industry presented distinct demands. His dedication to his family's venture and his commitment to providing affordable community dining options drove his success. He remains deeply grateful for the consistent support from the community, which played a pivotal role in the prosperity of his Pizza Hut franchises.
