America’s Greatest Tasting, Rapidly Expanding Chicken Tenders Brand Celebrates the Newest Grand Opening in Georgia and 53rd Store Company-Wide

Covington, GA (October 25, 2023) – Huey Magoo’s  “The Filet Mignon Of Chicken® – celebrates its newest franchise store with the grand opening in Covington, Georgia, President and CEO Andy Howard announces today. Huey Magoo’s Covington is the 53rd restaurant opening system-wide spanning 10 states, with over 250 franchises currently sold now in 13 states. The 4,000 square foot free standing restaurant features an outdoor patio and a mobile pick-up window, in which guests can order in advance through Huey Magoo’s mobile app and pick up their order at the pick-up window at their scheduled time. This is the fifth of up to 25 Huey Magoo’s stores to open in Greater Atlanta, joining Loganville, Oakwood, Dacula and Flowery Branch in the development deal of franchise group DAD’s Tenders, comprised of Dean Thompson, Alex Larson and Derry Thompson, who are also seasoned franchisees of Papa John’s. Their next location is slated to open in Monroe, GA in mid-2024. Huey Magoo’s Covington will offer dine-in/out, takeout and delivery through third-party delivery services DoorDash and Uber Eats in the future.

“We are beyond thrilled at this long-awaited opening for DAD’s Tenders, which we are dedicating to Dean’s mother Sue Thompson, who played an intricate part in shaping our core values within the restaurants of upholding a family atmosphere and culture that our customers and employees can equally enjoy,” says Alex Larson. “As a resident myself, we’ve had our eyes on Covington since our first opening in 2019, and we hope to become a staple in the community for sit-down, on the go, group gatherings or catering options. He continues, “We set out with a goal to create something special within the industry. As we grow more and gear up for the next location, we will continue looking for key leadership members to join our vision and path forward.” Howard continues, “DAD’s Tenders are a dream team in Georgia, who we are extremely fortunate to have leading our growth there. It’s a very big week for Huey Magoo’s with back-to-back openings in Ohio and Georgia, and we have even more stores and exciting announcements coming before the end of the year.”
