Orion Food Systems®, LLC was founded in 1983 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with the goal of offering high-quality food products for time-conscious consumers. The first brand introduced by Orion was Pizza Patrol, a regional pizza delivery franchise that opened its first location in 1984.
Shortly after, the Hot Stuff Pizza® brand was introduced into the convenience store channel, filling a consumer need for high-quality, highly-branded carryout food in the convenience store environment. Hot Stuff Pizza® is now one of the largest fast-food brands within the convenience store industry, operating in more than 1,000 locations throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
The success of Hot Stuff Pizza® can be attributed to focusing on a complete understanding of the convenience business, meeting the needs of convenience store consumers at the retail level, and serving as a real partner with their franchisees.
Orion Food Systems leads the marketplace in innovative concept development and menu introductions aimed at satisfying consumers' needs across all dayparts, whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks in between.
Orion Food Systems offers a number of individual and bundled brands in various categories including Hot Stuff Pizza® and SmashHits Deli™. In 2006, Hot Stuff® acquired Lettieri's Food To Go®, a Minnesota-based company focused on unique and innovative hand-held products for the food service industry.
