Slim & Husky’s was founded on a shared dream inside of a garage in 2015. The clever name came from a joke the longtime friends Emanuel Reed, Derrick Moore, and Clinton Gray have been laughing about for years. One of them has always been a slim guy, but the other two were always big fellas, forcing their mothers to shop for clothing in the children’s husky section.
The Tennessee State University grads started the fast casual, gourmet pizza joint as a way to serve unique pies and provide jobs to their neighborhood in North Nashville. Now, Slim & Husky’s offers build-your own pizzas, take out options, catering services, and delivery through third party vendors.
