Dave’s Hot Chicken signs multi-unit deal in Minnesota 

The chicken brand has signed a six-unit deal to open in the Twin Cities area

Dave’s Hot Chicken has announced the signing of a multi-unit franchise agreement to open six locations in the Twin Cities area, Minnesota. The brand has signed with experienced restaurateur, Michael McGuire to open in Apple Valley, Rosemount, Edina, Bloomington and Lakeville. 

“I’m thrilled to bring on a seasoned restaurant operator like Michael to further expansion,” said Bill Phelps, CEO of Dave’s Hot Chicken.  

“His three decades and counting of experience in the quick-service restaurant sector makes for a promising franchisee to share the Dave’s Hot Chicken experience with, and we’re excited for him to introduce our mouth-watering product to those around the Twin Cities area. 

McGuire has over 34 years of experience in the QSR sector with brands such as Jersey Mikes, Little Caesars, Krispy Kreme and Domino’s Pizza. McGuire’s son, Kavrin, will join him in operating his locations. 

“After trying the craveable product that Dave’s Hot Chicken has to offer, I knew I needed to do what it takes to bring the restaurant to this area of Minnesota,” said McGuire.  

“I am eager to grow Dave’s Hot Chicken in the surrounding area around the Twin Cities.” 

“I’m excited to continue expanding our footprint across Minnesota with someone as experienced in multi-unit operations like Michael,” said Shannon Swenson, vice president of franchise development at Dave’s Hot Chicken.  

“He stands out as a trusted franchisee with strong ties to the area, and I have no doubt he will be successful in this endeavor.”
