Huey Magoo’s Makes The 40/40 List For 2022
February 1, 2022 – Huey Magoo’s tagline, “The Filet Mignon of Chicken™,” has carried it throughout the Southeast, with multiple stores in Central and South Florida, Jacksonville, Georgia, Mississippi, and soon, Tampa, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Alabama, Ohio, and more. Led by “Chicken Expert” Andy Howard, a former Wingstop vet, and founders Matt Armstrong and Thad Hudgens, the brand recently opened its milestone 20th store and has sold 200 franchises company-wide. Year-over-year, same-store sales are up more than 22 percent and the company hit $30 million in systemwide sales in 2021.
Each Huey Magoo’s chicken tender is made all-natural, with no antibiotics ever, no hormones, no steroids, and no preservatives. Initially during COVID, the company implemented several marketing initiatives, including special deals on family meals, catering, and gift cards. It also added health, safety, and sanitization practices company-wide, and tacked on curbside pickup at certain locations.
