He is blessed to be surrounded by the most talented and passionate team in the pizza industry.

Hunt Brothers Pizza puts pizza shops in convenience stores, gas stations, rural markets, sports venues & schools. The company was started in 1990 and is headquartered in Nashville Tennessee. The roots of the company go back to 1962 when 4 brothers from Evansville Indiana - Don, Lonnie, Jim & Charlie Hunt -sold pizza supplies to restaurants, taverns, bowling alleys and drive in theatres. Today Hunt Brothers Pizza is the largest brand of Made to Order and Grab & Go pizzas to the convenience store industry with over 7300 locations in 28 states plus Germany & Italy.

Mr. Hunt was born and raised in Nashville. His career path originally took him into the financial services industry for 17 years where he developed strategies for families and business owners to achieve their financial dreams. As a partner at Heritage Financial Group, LLC, he served as a member of the Million Dollar Round Table, the premier association for financial professionals worldwide.
In 2001, his life changed abruptly when he was struck by a car while training for the Chicago marathon. He has said, “It was one of those life moments when you stop, re-evaluate your purpose and make life changes.” He refocused on what was truly important- family- and joined his brother & cousin in the company founded by his father, Don Hunt. In 2009, he was officially named Chief Executive Officer. His career in the financial services industry has been fundamental to his stewardship of the company for sustainable growth and hopefully easier transitions for the next generation of leadership.
