Huey Magoo's has opened the first of three locations planned for the Gainesville, Florida, area.

The 2,250-square-foot restaurant features an 800-square-foot outdoor patio and is under the direction of husband-and-wife franchisee team, Chad and Doreen Smith, who are also franchisees of Cinnabon.

"We are very excited to finally open our first Huey Magoo's and serve the people of Gainesville and specifically the students of the University of Florida," Doreen Smith said in a company press release. "Our first restaurant is in the perfect location to serve students during the school day and into the evening."

CEO Andy Howard, an alumni of UF, agreed and said it was thrilling to open a location in Gator Nation.

"Huey Magoo's is famous for feeding the hungry students of the University of Central Florida with our popular location in the student union, and now we look forward to treating the whole Gator community to the one-and-only 'Filet Mignon Of Chicken,'" he said in the release.

Huey Magoo's was founded in 2004 and is expanding throughout Central and South Florida as well as Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina and coming soon to North Carolina, Missouri and Las Vegas.
