ORLANDO, Fla. – The rapidly expanding, hit chicken tenders brand Huey Magoo’s is at is again. 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 even tastier with six new Huey Magoo’s stores opening in south Georgia, President and CEO Andy Howard announced in a news release.
New Huey Magoo’s franchisee Buck Harris will open the restaurants in Lowndes, Dougherty, Lee and Tift counties in south Georgia. The first location is slated to open in late 2019/early 2020. Harris brings 15 years of ownership in the fried chicken concept, including formerly Chick-Fil-A and currently Chicken Salad Chicks, 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,” Howard said.
The new franchisee said he’s ready to join the Huey Magoo’s team.
“We are very excited about joining the team,” Harris said. “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.
Huey Magoo’s was founded in 2004 by Matt Armstrong and Thad Hudgens, two Southern boys with a passion for quality chicken and a penchant for serving others. Voted “Best Fried Chicken” and “Best of the Best Chicken Tenders,” Huey Magoo’s is rapidly expanding throughout the Southeast with multiple locations in the greater Orlando area and coming soon to other Florida and Georgia locations. Huey Magoo’s prides itself on providing fresh and tasty chicken tenders in a clean, family-friendly environment, while showing their love for people.
Huey Magoo’s gives back a portion of profits to not-for-profit organizations and community groups. Committed to building a culture of excellence in service and food quality by serving only premium hand-breaded or grilled chicken tenders dipped or “sauced” in uniquely flavorful signature sauces, Huey Magoo’s attracts a cult-like following of millennials, families and neighboring businesses desiring quality, delicious food at reasonable prices.
