President and CEO Andy Howard announce today.  Joining Huey Magoo’s family of franchisees will be 20 restaurants in Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, 20 restaurants in Nashville, Tennessee, 11 restaurants covering Cocoa Beach to Palm Beach, Florida, nine restaurants around Fort Lauderdale, Florida, three restaurants in Gainesville, Florida and three restaurants in Asheville, North Carolina.  These latest additions bring Huey Magoo’s to eight states: Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, and Ohio, with many more new franchises on the horizon.

"I'm asked all the time, what differentiates Huey Magoo's from all of the other tender concepts,” says Howard.  “I imagine they all say that their tenders are the best, but we say, ‘Try Huey Magoo’s!  Let that tender melt in your mouth, and then you will agree our tenders are  the best in the industry.’”  He continues, “The other key item that really differentiates us is the quality of franchisees that we have attracted.  They are first and foremost honest, hardworking folks, and they love Huey Magoo's.  They all are focused on being great operators and taking care of our guests, one guest at a time."

Huey Magoo’s restaurants offer safe dine-in/out, take-out, delivery through third-party delivery services, drive-thru, and curbside pickup at participating restaurants.  (Check for updates on all restaurants’ dining room openings).  All guests will enjoy Huey Magoo’s signature grilled, hand-breaded, or “sauced” premium chicken tenders, farm-fresh salads, sandwiches, and wraps.  Each Huey Magoo’s tender is always made fresh, all-natural, with no antibiotics ever, no hormones, no steroids, and no preservatives.
