BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Qu is pleased to announce its unified commerce platform has been selected to power Huey Magoo’s rapidly expanding locations for the chicken tenders brand. Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Huey Magoo’s currently has over 40 restaurants operating in seven states, with over 225 franchises sold in 12 states.
The fast casual brand will use Qu’s integrated ordering, delivery, and kitchen platform to meet its aggressive growth plans to double locations in 2023, while quickly fulfilling guest orders across in-store, drive-thru, and digital channels.
“We were looking for a cloud-based platform that could not only grow with us but one that had a local cloud component to ensure stability and consistent, real-time sales data from our ordering channels,” says Huey Magoo’s Chief Operating Officer Mike Sutter. “We’re particularly impressed with Qu’s mobile reporting and voice-enabled app Notify, which greatly benefits our franchisees and store managers with instant, easy access to their sales data.”
Huey Magoo’s will take full advantage of Qu’s product suite—including POS, native Kitchen/KDS, and direct delivery integrations—with 7-Shifts providing the scheduling software. Qu’s unique in-store cloud uses Edge Computing to provide consistent sales data and the modern edge needed to keep pace with future technology additions.
Sutter continues, “We selected Qu because they were the partner most dedicated to going on this growth journey with us. Their willingness to go above and beyond, coupled with their collaborative work style, has proven that to be true. We are both in it together, to create an experience our guests will love and keep coming back for.”
Huey Magoo’s restaurants offer dine-in/out, take out, delivery through third-party delivery services, drive-thru and curbside pickup at participating restaurants. All guests will enjoy Huey Magoo’s signature grilled, hand-breaded or “sauced” premium chicken tenders, farm fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps. Each Huey Magoo’s tender is always made all-natural, with no antibiotics ever, no hormones, no steroids and no preservatives.
“One of the biggest benefits our managers are already enjoying is the ability to train new users in five minutes or less,” says Sutter. “It’s a comfortable and easy to use system due to the swipe-friendly interface. Similar to using a mobile phone, the younger generation picks it up in no time.”
“It’s really exciting to be selected as the technology platform by one of the fastest growing fast-casual brands in the country,” said Amir Hudda, CEO of Qu. “Qu’s platform brings the most value when restaurants leverage the true unified commerce capabilities across order channels, while also accessing real-time data visibility for store owners and operators. We’re really looking forward to growing together with Huey Magoo’s.”
Qu is the restaurant technology company evolving POS, responsibly, for a more sustainable future. With the industry’s first unified commerce platform, Qu’s fully integrated products go beyond fragmented ordering channels and tech experiences to create healthier connections for multi-unit restaurant operating teams and their many stakeholders.
Based in Bethesda, MD, Qu is backed by leading restaurant entrepreneurs and investors that have also backed Google, Salesforce, Uber, and Dropbox. Visit www.qubeyond.com.
