An Orlando, Fla.-based quick service chicken tender restaurant bent on growth has chosen Goose Creek for its 56th location.
When Huey Magoo’s opened its first South Carolina location 17 months ago in Greenville, it was the company’s 29th.
Huey Magoo’s Chicken Tenders at 431 St. James Ave., Goose Creek, is the third in the state, according to company President and CEO Andy Howard, who said in a news release that with 265 franchises sold in 13 states, the company has a lot of plans to expand.
The 3,800-square-foot free standing restaurant features an outdoor patio and a drive-thru. This is the second of eight Huey Magoo’s stores planned for greater Charleston and Columbia by franchisees Philip Horn, Don Bauer and Eddie Ward, who are also franchisees/operators of Papa Johns Pizza and Jersey Mike’s Subs. Huey Magoo’s Goose Creek will offer dine-in, take-out, catering and delivery through third-party delivery services DoorDash and Uber Eats.
“We are very happy to hold the grand opening of our second Charleston area Huey Magoo’s location and bring the ‘Filet Mignon of Chicken’ to Goose Creek,” the franchisees said in a news release. “Now, more locals can look forward to a fresh and flavorful new dining experience to enjoy and explore. We are also excited to be more involved with the supportive community here by offering our Spirit Nights program.”
The restaurants offer Huey Magoo’s signature grilled, hand-breaded or “sauced” premium chicken tenders, fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps. Each Huey Magoo’s tender is always made all natural, with no antibiotics, no hormones, no steroids and no preservatives, the company says.
