Someone you know wherever you go... Landmark for hungry Americans The Howard Johnson Story Come join us on a walk down memory lane. How did this American Institution, Howard Johnson's, get started. It's a fascinating story... Slide20:  First Howard Johnson's, Wollaston MA -1925 The Beginnings 1925-1929 Expansion 1929-1940 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA - 1930 Quincy, MA Early 30's On the American Highways 1940-1959:  On the American Highways 1940-1959 The first turnpike restaurant in the United States was opened in 1940 by Howard Johnson's on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The company soon became the leading toll road operator in the country. Business boomed and the Howard Johnson Company continued to grow. Then came World War II and once again Johnson faced financial disaster. Food rationing cut off the company's supplies and gasoline rationing and travel restrictions cut off his customers. Most of the restaurants closed and the Company faced bankruptcy. Johnson kept the company alive by providing food for On the American Highways 1940-1959:  On the American Highways 1940-1959 military installations, defense plants and schools. When the war ended most of the restaurants were reopened and new ones were built. The trend toward a scarcity of skilled chefs had already come into focus and steps to cope with this labor shortage had to be taken. Johnson pioneered the new convenience food concept of processing and pre-portioning food in company-operated central plants and shipping to restaurants for final preparation and cooking to insure high quality standardized food service. Each restaurant was topped with a bright orange roof so On the American Highways 1940-1959:  On the American Highways 1940-1959 the traveler would immediately recognize the restaurant. This became a beacon to the travelers as Howard Johnson's became known for quality food at reasonable prices and with the added lure of ice cream in 28 flavors. Howard Johnson's had 400 restaurants in 1954 when the Company entered the lodging industry with the opening of its first franchised motor lodge in Savannah, Georgia. A pre-sold name in which the motorist placed confidence soon became a combined one-stop dining and overnight convenience. Again, license agreements with investors helped the Company expand quickly in the field. Expansion continued to Puerto Rico and Canada and beyond.
