Construction has begun on Huey Magoo's chicken tenders restaurant at the corner of Old Register Road and Tormenta Way in the Publix shopping center. The Statesboro location will be the 10th location in Georgia and is a locally owned franchise. The closest one to Statesboro is in Hinesville. 

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. Now, former executives from one of the fastest-growing franchise chains, Wingstop, have partnered with the founders from Huey Magoo’s.

Both partners have taken their similar passion and bullseye focus for the perfect chicken tender by crafting it into everything that Huey Magoo’s offers today. Alongside the original two co-founders, the Huey Magoo’s team is led by President and CEO Andy Howard, Chairman of the Board Wes Jablonski, COO Mike Sutter, VP of Operations Matt Poleos, and Board of Directors Member Bill Knight.

At Huey Magoo’s, they serve only REAL tenders made from the tenderloin. It’s the filet mignon and the best 3% of the chicken.


At Huey Magoo’s, their mission is to serve you and your family great tasting, handcrafted chicken tenders while spreading happiness.

Their premium chicken tenders are served hand-breaded and made to order or grilled, which they marinate for 24 hours. Either version can be sauced for maximum flavor in one of their four amazing sauces.

They use honest ingredients and transform them into real food that is fresh and made just for you. The beautiful part of it all is that whether you’re having their tenders as a meal, on their own, in a salad, sandwich or wrap, it’s all based around the tender – and a smile.
