Just a few weeks following the opening of Central Florida based Huey Magoo’s first restaurant in Georgia, the chicken tenders brand continues rapid expansion throughout the Southeast with the grand opening of its first location in Sunrise, Florida, president and CEO Andy Howard announced Tuesday.
The 1,875-square foot store is the first of five restaurants in South Florida that new Huey Magoo’s franchisees and construction, manufacturing and sales professionals Tyler and Bob Cafferty and family will open. The Cafferty’s are also in the final stages of a lease agreement in Coral Springs set to open in summer 2020, and they are looking at additional locations in Boca Raton, North Fort Lauderdale, Pompano, Coconut Creek, Margate and Tamarac.
“After years of hard work and planning, it’s a dream come true to finally share Huey Magoo’s delicious tenders with everyone here in South Florida,” says Tyler Cafferty. “As a huge fan of Huey Magoo’s from when I was a student at The University of Central Florida, I have never felt more secure in our decision to join the Huey Magoo’s family. We are excited to continue the tradition in South Florida and kick things off with our great location in Sunrise, not to mention give all the UCF alumni here a big treat.” Howard continues, “Not only am I thrilled to have Tyler and Bob Cafferty as our first franchisees in South Florida, it has extra special meaning to me because I was born and raised in South Florida, and I still reside here.”
Sunrise will offer guests 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. Guests of all ages will also enjoy Huey Magoo’s welcoming industrial design.
