Less than one year after Huey Magoo’s revealed plans to expand outside of the Central Florida region into Atlanta, South Florida and Tampa, “The Peach State” will get six new Huey Magoo’s stores opening in South Georgia, president and CEO Andy Howard announced today. New Huey Magoo’s franchisee Buck Harris will open the restaurants in Lowndes, Dougherty, Lee and Tift Counties of South Georgia. The first location is slated to open in late 2019/early 2020. Harris brings 15 years of ownership to the fried chicken concept, including formerly Chick-fil-A and currently Chicken Salad Chick, to the dynamic Huey Magoo’s team.
“From one chicken connoisseur to another, Buck and his family will be a wonderful addition to the Huey Magoo’s family,” says Howard.
“We are very excited about joining the team,” Harris adds. “All of my family are originally from South Georgia. It is truly a region full of exceptional people that really understand southern hospitality and great food. With Huey Magoo’s amazing food and spectacular service we plan on providing, we truly believe it will be a great success here and something South Georgians have never tasted before.”
The South Georgia stores will offer Huey Magoo’s signature grilled, hand-breaded or “sauced” premium chicken tenders, farm fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps, available as individual meals, meals for two and family-sized options. Each tender is always made fresh, all natural, with no antibiotics ever, no hormones, no steroids and no preservatives. All locations will also feature Huey Magoo’s sleek, industrial and relaxed design.
