HOJO TRUCKS AND HOWARD'S 28 FLAVORS!



 

One of my more harmless addictions is collecting Howard Johnson's memorabilia.
One of the Hojo items I really go out of my way to acquire are those neat HOJO trucks that were strategically displayed by the cash register - checkout at just about every Howard Johnson's Restaurant. Here are some examples of those neat little trucks that all of us savages would beg for when our Folks were paying their bill at the cash register.


This is an example of the original Hojo truck manufactured by Winross, which started appearing on the shelves of Hojo Restaurants in the early 1960's.


In the mid 1990's, Howard Johnson's and Winross teamed up to make contemporary versions of the various trucks that were made for Hojo's throughout the previous 3 decades. The restaurant in Canton, Massachusetts had several of these on display but the nasty hag behind the counter would never sell them to me. I ended up buying them through Franchise Associates Inc. which operated what little that was left of the Hojo empire.


The ice cream tanker was a very popular version of the Howard Johnson's - Winross collection.
The original versions are quite collectable and hard to find. This particular model was manufactured in the mid 1990's in the same series as the truck above.


This is one of the more unusual and rare trucks in my Hojo collection. It is a sample, made for Howard Johnson's by Winross and is considered quite rare. Very few of these ever made it to the general public for sale and in most cases only a handful of any of these "samples" were produced.
