Southeast-based chicken tenders brand Huey Magoo’s is undergoing rapid expansion with the announcement of several new stores opening in the Atlanta area starting next year, reports President and CEO Andy Howard.
New Huey Magoo’s franchisees and seasoned franchisees of Papa John’s Dean Thompson, Derry Thompson and Alex Larson join the Magoo’s team to bring the Central Florida-based brand to Atlanta with an initial 10 stores and possible additional 36 stores, totaling 46 new Huey Magoo’s franchises coming to the Greater Atlanta area.
The first restaurant is slated to open in April/May 2019, followed by the second store around December 2019.
“We could not be more excited to expand our much-loved brand from Orlando into Atlanta, and partner with such excellent franchisees as Dean, Derry and Alex to spearhead that growth,” says Howard.
Dean Thompson says, “Yes, that’s right. We are bringing the little ‘g’ to big ‘G’ country… Huey Magoo’s is coming to Georgia! We knew for some time that we wanted a second brand to develop in addition to our 10 Papa John’s. We looked at four or five other concepts before choosing Huey Magoo’s, but once we tasted their amazing tenders, saw the simplicity of their operations, met and got to know Andy and their team, we knew we found a concept that we could be proud to develop in a very big way throughout Atlanta.”
Joining the Huey Magoo’s family of restaurants, the Atlanta 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 hormones, no steroids and no preservatives. All locations will also feature Huey Magoo’s newest design.
