“Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is going national with a plan to nearly double its footprint during 2015.
There are 10 locations currently open across four states, and eight future restaurants were announced Feb. 18.
Atlanta, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Knoxville, Fort Worth and Kansas City will soon experience the renowned Southern comfort food the restaurant brand has provided for almost 60 years. A location is also being planned for Detroit.
Wendy McCrory and Matt McCrory own the franchising rights for Gus’s. Wendy says they have worked on getting these new stores for quite sometime and says she is very excited for the franchisees.
“Everyone we are bringing on board has that same vision,” Wendy says.
Since making the announcement on the Gus’s Facebook page, the post received 33,000 views in 3 hours.
“I know it sounds sappy, but I really think our chicken just brings people together,” Wendy says. “It is the quality of the food, it is the atmosphere, it is being involved in your community.”
According to the Gus’s website, no new franchise applications will be accepted until June 2015 due to the high demand.
