IT'S NEVER EASY TO SAY

Good-Bye

Sadly, we must announce that Howdy’s Texas Grill’d Pizza will be permanently closing our South College Station location. This coming Sunday, December 5th, 2021 will be our last day of operations.

In 2016, we started Howdy’s with the dream of bringing something new to College Station, and to pizza in general. That dream was to create a style of pizza that celebrated Texas food traditions, and our goal was to make College Station the home of Texas-style pizza. Something we hoped to spread around the state and beyond with BCS forever being known as the home of “Texas-style Grilled Pizza”, just like how Lockhart/Elgin is the undeniable home of Central Texas BBQ.

 

Since we opened our restaurant in March 2019 in South College Station, we’ve had the extreme pleasure of serving our Texas-style grilled pizza to thousands and thousands of you. We’ve made hundreds of thousands of pizzas for this community. We’ve been a part of your lives, your birthday and holiday celebrations, your date nights, your post-game celebrations, school fundraisers, church socials, and even many weddings.

 

We even have had the deep honor of serving the Aggie faithful Texas-style grilled pizza at Kyle Field for the last two years. It’s been our profound privilege to share our love of pizza and Texas food traditions with all of you.

 

We are proud of our team, and their dedication and hard work which has earned your vote for “Best Pizza” in the Eagle Reader’s Choice Awards every year since we opened our doors, and last year in the Best of the Brazos. Those awards mean so much because they came from you, our neighbors recognizing the effort and quality of what our team worked so hard to help us bring to you. We’re grateful to God and to you for the opportunity to be a part of the BCS community.

  

Like so many of our fellow independent restaurants, these last two years have been nothing short of a nightmare scenario.  As a new business, it’s been a devastating time, to be honest. We have fought through lockdowns, quarantining staff, enhanced COVID protocols, national staffing shortages, supply chain interruptions, and more to get to today. In the end, our business just never bounced back to the Pre-Covid/early lockdown numbers we needed to survive and move forward.

 

In the last year, we have been fighting a losing battle against a staffing crisis, radically rising labor costs to keep the people we have, and costs rising exponentially on our ingredients and in every other expense category. All of this is on top of decreased sales, interruptions to our supply chain, and more than we can share here. We have to trust God has everything in His hands ultimately. We don’t know what the future holds, but it’s clearly going to be different than we imagined it.

 

We also must acknowledge and thank our families, who have sacrificed more than you could ever know to be in a service business during this global pandemic. Other restaurant and essential service business owners will know exactly what we're talking about. 

 

For the rest of the week (Wednesday - Sunday), we are going to be open for dinner service only from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm each day. We will be selling what we have in stock, and when we run out that will be the end of it. Our hope is to make it through Sunday, but we may close earlier if we sell out of stock. If you have gift cards, please come use them.

 

Our goal is to restructure and reopen in a different location in the fall of next year if not sooner.

But, like everything in this crazy world, we’re investing all our plans into God’s hands. We’ll keep you updated as we know more, and the next steps solidify.

 

For now, we plan on taking the holidays to be with our families, get some much-needed rest, and refocus with some fresh perspective in the New Year.

 

Lastly, please support locally-owned small businesses and especially restaurants. These are exceptionally precarious times and there are many beloved places here in town that are walking a razor-thin line of survival. Be gracious with them as well, they are fighting through such a tremendous headwind just to keep their doors open and even minimal levels of staffing. We know for a fact that they need your support, and that we as a community need them.

 

We genuinely hope to see you again in the fall, and hopefully, you will welcome us back in whatever form that takes. Regardless, we are grateful to you for inviting us into your lives and making us a part of your community these last three years. We’ll miss seeing all of your smiling faces and serving you delicious Texas-style grilled pizza more than you can possibly know.

 

God bless y’all,

Howdy’s Pizza Owners
