DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince were right when they wrote that “summer’s a natural aphrodisiac.” Flip flops and swimsuits are the dress code, at least for a few months. The warmer temps call for cooler drinks. And Slim & Husky’s is coming in clutch with their line of frozen drinks, Ice Ice Babies. […]
Slim & Husky’s is a story of three friends with a mission to empower communities while using pizza as their vehicle to engage.
It aims to offer quality food, employment opportunities, and community events as the company expands across the nation.
In the beginning...
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 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.
We just want to be a part of this street as much as possible and continue to develop and have a footprint in this community.
From hosting events to support local artists to honoring area teachers, we strive to recognize and promote positivity wherever we go.

Inside of his one bedroom apartment, he has propped canvases along the walls and hung them from the ceiling.

doughjoe, a 33-year-old Nashville artist, has seen life through the lens of a microscope. He has recreated it through the tip of a ballpoint pen. A former biology major and prospective doctor, he thought he would be slicing through skin and making incisions. But a few months after graduating from college, he realized his true […]
It was a weekend he had been looking forward to for weeks. Yusef Hubb, a.k.a. doughjoe, a lanky teenager at the time, and his dad planned a trip to Ohio. There was an Indy Car race on the schedule, and they bonded over the loud whirring of engines, the swish of air as each car […]
Jermaine Clark (a.k.a. Xmaine), 32, has never been the type of artist that mimics styles and or rehashes themes. Even before his brief stint at the Savannah College of Art and Design, the Atlanta-based visual artist and muralist was paving his own path in the art industry. He remembers the early days when his friends […]
